The Team

Jill Ashton

Jill Ashton

Jill began her working life as a chemistry teacher progressing to middle management in a large secondary school. Frustrated with a mass of day to day bureaucracy she founded Ashton Associates with her husband Dave. Building a business was a massive learning curve but with great training and mentorship Ashton Associates became a success.

Jill now facilitates several Business Networking Groups in Retford and Sheffield with the aim of supporting other businesses to grow.

Dave Ashton

Dave Ashton

Dave graduated in electrical and electronic engineering from Sheffield University and worked for a short while as an engineer before moving into teaching where he met his wife Jill.

Dave enjoyed great results lecturing in Physics and Electronics but during this time realised that the teaching profession did not provide the long term financial security he and Jill were looking for. So Ashton Associates was formed.
