Meet Jonathan Coulthard Managing Director of My Fathers Heart

Jonathan Coulthard is the Founder and Managing Director of My Fathers Heart and still a very central figure involved in client projects. He has grown the business from a ‘one-man-band’ to the market-leading company it is today.

Over the years, Jonathan has built the business with a team who share the same passion and drive for perfection and can create personal and captivating designs.

Let’s meet Jonathan…

Hi Jonathan, what sparked your interest in home design?

It goes back to 1982 when I bought my first house which was a renovation project. I loved the process, designing and making, and the sense of satisfaction when seeing the finished result.

What are you responsible for?

I am responsible for overseeing all aspects of the business, project managing and customer care.

When did you start My Fathers Heart?

It all started in 1995 when I decided to make a life change and turn my passion into a career. I completed City and Guilds training in furniture making and became the first student on the course to sell an exam piece at the end of year show. I started the business with just £500 and a mission to produce exquisite, handmade furniture and kitchens.

How would the team describe you?

Knowledgeable, calming, patient

What do you like to do on your days off?

I am currently renovating a neglected property so that keeps me busy at weekends. I also enjoy looking after the grandchildren (including Nathan who many of you may recognise from #NathanReckons on our social media channels) and going on long country walks with my wife Ruth and our friends.

Is there a project you have most enjoyed working on?

It’s difficult to identify a particular favourite project as there have been so many fantastic jobs over the years. The projects I do enjoy the most are those with customers who have a passion for design.

Why do you think My Fathers Heart stands out from its competitors?

We have passion and drive for perfection in our work and in our service which sets us above the rest.
