Lisa Raynes

Founder Pride Road

Lisa Raynes is an architect with over 20 years' experience. During her career, Lisa's faced redundancy twice - once while on maternity leave. She started her first business, Raynes Architecture, out of necessity, but soon realised there are a lot of people like her who want to use their qualifications and training in a career that is financially and creatively fulfilling, as well as flexible. As a result, Lisa set up Pride Road, an architecture franchise to help other architects – especially women – start and grow their own businesses. Lisa believes flexible working is a key way to help attract and retain more women in construction and is campaigning to educate people on the benefits of moving away from the traditional way of working.
