Managing Director Stevie Mitchell’s father, John, had spent many years living in retirement accommodation.

John believed the company who factored his own community were not delivering a good enough service, and that value for money was poor. He fought unsuccessfully for many years to remove them. Before his death, Stevie agreed to start a company and provide the factoring service to his father’s community in order to ensure the highest level of service for all residents was achieved. John sadly passed away before seeing his son fulfil the promise in the form of JohnSon & Co Retirement Factor. John’s desire, drive and focus are evident in the high standard of service we provide. These values are embedded deep within the culture of our business and evident in the care we provide.

Stevie has enjoyed a long and successful career as a Project Director in the engineering and construction industries. MBA qualified, he’s completed many multi-million pound, multi-discipline engineering projects both in the UK and internationally, in a career spanning over 30 years.
