At the head of the Elite family is Mark Lloyd, our Founder and Managing Director. Mark grew up in the Cotswolds and his career in the garage door industry began when he joined the manufacturer Cardale Garage Doors in 1994 when they were manufacturing in Brackley, Northamptonshire. During his early career with Cardale he delivered garage doors across the South West to many housing developments in Devon and Cornwall. If your home has a Cardale garage door and was built in the late 90’s the chances are Mark delivered it! Mark moved into Transport and Production Management with Cardale and was involved with their move to Bedfordshire and their joint venture with the German door manufacturer Novoferm.
Mark has seen many changes to the garage door industry over the last twenty years and is incredibly knowledgeable about the product.
Mark is usually seen in his silver Ford van. He carries out all on-site surveys in addition to repairing and servicing garage doors.
Lorraine, Mark’s wife, looks after all the paperwork involved with running our garage door business. Lorraine also worked for Cardale at Brackley for a short time and then went on to work in the NHS before leaving to join Mark running the family business. Running the business from home means that not only can we keep our prices low (by not having the overheads of a showroom) but that Lorraine can juggle looking after the children at the same time as running the business.

Tracy joined Elite in January 2020 following the closure of John Teuton Garage Doors in Kidlington. Tracy has a wealth of knowledge and has worked in the garage door industry for over 20 years. She works in the office looking after our customers.
