Dale Kirkwood |

Father. Husband. Aspiring CEO.

I am curious about everything and even more curious if it connects to a computer.
Speak to me

IT & Computer Geek and now a Salesforce Trailblazer.

I broke my first computer when I was 8, I built my first computer when I was 11, I compiled my first program when I was 12. I owned 11 computers at one point and turned my dad’s shed into a computer museum stacked with all kinds of weird and wonderful computers (or ‘junk’ as my dad called it).

Kirkwood Timber

(Mar 2014 – Jun 2015)


I started Kirkwood Timber in 2013 to supply timber and building products to trades people in the local area. I then started Kirkwood Joinery in 2014 to service the same people with bespoke joinery products such as windows and doors. At the peak I employed 7 members of staff, 1 external sales person, 1 internal sales person/admin person, 2 wood machinists, 1 driver and 2 joiners. The company dealt mainly with hardwoods, construction timbers and timber machining operating a re-saw, planer, spindle moulder, panel saw & sable saw. Sadly the company had to close down due to customer bad debts despite growing at a consistent and sustainable rate.

Kirkwood Joinery was formed in partnership with a local medium sized joinery business. Kirkwood Joinery enabled Kirkwood Timber to provide high quality, high margin products to customers. The arrangement generated a significant amount of business over the short period of the partnership.
