Robert Cowie has worked in the property business in Scotland for most of his post educational life. Firstly in residential agency, then as a general practice surveyor. He has also worked with several building companies in the field of land purchase and development. In recent years he has changed his focus to combining this expertise with renewable energy interests with a view to a mutual approach. His partner Jacqueline's work for the Swiss Zeno Karl Schindler Foundation, Geneva, has given the opportunity to expand this field geographically beyond the U.K. Nevertheless, the focus of JR Partners is primarily the UK and Scotland. Robert is director of JR Partners as well as of ÜserHuus AG, Hergiswil. He is also a director of Tigh Grian Ltd, Edinburgh.

Jacqueline Schindler has been working in banking and insurance business after her Master degree in Economics in Geneva, in research and translation after her Master and DAS degrees in Medieval Studies in New York and Geneva. In 2005 she created the Zeno Karl Schindler Foundation (Environmental engineering, Medieval studies and Digital Humanities), in Geneva, which she has been presiding and managing since. As a result and with Robert's professional activity she became involved in more practical approaches to renewables and to sustainable housing. She is the Swiss link of JR Partners Ltd and director at ÜserHuus AG, in Hergiswil (NW),  Switzerland.
