About Frances

Frances MacKenzie joined the Cubex team in 2010 and as our fearless Commercial Director, she concentrates on the development and strategic growth of the business, as well as overseeing the administration team. Having a background in the sales and service industry Fran dislikes sloppy service delivery and bad communication. She simply won’t tolerate it, and despite being a very busy lady she still has time to keep her eye on everyone ;) You can often find Fran on site, in her pink safety boots and hard hat consulting with a client on the range of finishing touches for their new space. When she’s not on site she can usually be seen doodling in one of her posh notebooks. Cubex Contracts specialise in refurbishment projects for Office and Warehouse environments including Mezzanine floors, partitioning, suspended Ceilings, Racking design and supply, Space planning, interior design and furniture.
