Our Team

Peter Mitchell

Peter founded Mitchell Bridges over 40 years ago, after discovering that the market for temporary bridges was limited. With a little imagination and a great deal of determination, he’s changed the landscape for thousands of our customers and for us. 

Chris Mitchell

Our Managing Director Chris and his hands-on approach allows us to maintain fantastic relationships with our customers and builds an unrivalled knowledge of what they need. Whether he’s out on a site visit or overseeing the design and build of a bridge, our customers get a personal service alongside an exceptional product.  

Jane Downing

Jane is our Finance Director and she’s the cog that keeps us turning on a day-to-day basis. Her level of knowledge allows her to be on-hand to deal with enquiries and installs, but she’s also here to make sure that we meet the high standards that our clients expect of us. Jane overlaps on HR, admin, finance and day-to-day management when Chris is out and about.

Senior Site Staff

James Bailey & Phil O’Donoghue 

James and Phil are our go-to men on-site. They manage and oversee all of our site installations and logistics from road closures to equipment hire, staffing and safety. They’re always on-hand to help problem solve and provide solutions so that our installations run as smoothly as possible.

David Taylor

David has been with us since the very beginning. His knowledge of temporary bridges and his ability to create solutions for the trickiest jobs make him a real asset to our hard working team. David plans all of our projects, sourcing components and ensuring that every little thing has been thought of.  


The Mitchell Bridges’ service means that we like to be involved with our clients early on in the planning process. We are problem solvers and have many years of expert knowledge and experience.
