Ean Parsons

CEO of Parsons Containers Group of Companies

Ean Parsons can trace his involvement in the container industry back to at least 1984 in land based operations and before that as a seafarer. He brought all his experience to bear when starting Parsons Containers in 2000 and brought his reputation for customer service to the business and made it a core value.

"I am very proud of Parsons Containers as an independent container trader. We put our customers at the centre of everything we do!"




Jane Skilbeck 

Business and Finance Manager

Jane has worked for Parsons Containers since 2004 having previously worked in finance and customer service.  Her experience and business knowledge have helped grow the Parsons Group, in particular U Hold The Key Self-Storage.

‘After working for a large organisation it has been really satisfying to work for a smaller company and help it grow into the business it is now. We are constantly looking at ways we do things to improve our facilities and provide the best service to customers we can.’
