Katie was born in Carnon Downs and educated at Trescol Vean and Truro High School, before graduating from the University of Kent with a bachelors degree in Chemistry. She then completed a post-graduate degree at King’s College London in the pharmacognasy department finding natural remedies for diabetes.

Whilst preparing to take on a post-doctoral position in the USA to continue her work in 2007, Katie found out that she was expecting her first child and instead decided to remain in Cornwall and go into property management instead.

Since joining Blue Waters she has overseen the company’s seven-fold growth, and is set to see the business more than double in size in 2015.

When she’s not tirelessly working for Blue Waters Residential Management, Katie enjoys taxi-ing her daughter Elia around the county playing rugby for Perranporth Sirens.

John Bawden

Consultant, Blue Waters Residential

John was born in Redruth, living and working in Cornwall throughout his life. For over twenty years he managed a successful diamond drilling business working throughout the world.

John has been a property owner since 1998, with numerous apartments in the Truro and Falmouth area used for rental and holiday letting. John has been a Director for the Developments in which his properties were based and has also acted as Company Secretary. Whilst being Director he has also been involved with the purchase of a freehold using the Right To Manage scheme.

John formed Blue Waters Residential Management Ltd after being approached by several other Developments to act as their new Managing Agent, with personal experience of inefficient and sometimes non-existent management from local and national-based companies inspiring Blue Water’s “pro-active” management stance.

Now taking a back seat in the company, John still actively lends his experience to Blue Waters Residential, especially with regards to the Right To Manage scheme as well as maintaining the company accounts.

Ross moved into a permanent role at Blue Waters Residential after years of unofficially supporting wife Katie Bawden from the sidelines. Schooled at Truro School and an Imperial College masters graduate, he can’t make a cup of tea but at least he knows his way around a computer!
