The past 12 months have seen us work on some of our best projects yet and with some exciting new jobs in the pipeline, we are delighted to announce 6 new members of staff have joined the team here at Chameleon. Of course, it wouldn’t be a proper introduction if we didn’t tell you a bit about them (even the embarrassing bits!)
Pat joins us our business development manager for the North East and brings with him an impressive 31 years’ experience. Pat is a huge football fan and a supporter of Newcastle United. As well as men’s football he also enjoys being involved in Newcastle’s women’s team and attends Durham and Sunderland’s Sunday leagues. Alongside his love of football, Pat is an avid runner and you can often find him running 10k road races (rather you than us Pat!) “I guess it’s quite funny when you see someone my age trying to get up a hill”.
Steph has worked in the commercial furniture industry for 12 years and joins our team as business development manager for the Midlands (her hometown!) Steph is dog-obsessed and if she isn’t out walking her three dachshunds – Ozzy, Sharon & Nora, she is volunteering at her local animal shelter “I know they only have little legs but honestly we go for miles and they love it!” Aside from her love of animals, she is also a huge fan of mini-golf, little does she know we love a crazy golf course so prepare to lose Steph!
Jess is our new brand manager and will be taking the lead on our international marketing and branding activity. Not only does she have 6 years’ experience in the industry but she is also a huge interiors fan and spends her spare time redecorating her own home and documenting it on her Instagram account @the_middle_terrace. “I’ve always been obsessed with decorating and no room in my house is the same for longer than 12 months, much to my other half’s disappointment!” Brilliant, we know who to come to when we need our living room painting!
Harriet has worked in the commercial furniture industry for 12 years and joins our team as business development manager for West Yorkshire. Harriet is a sun worshiper with a real love for the Greek islands and runs away to them at any chance she gets. When she isn’t chasing the sun, she is at home with her little girl Imogen, exploring the local countryside and drinking plenty of gin! We aren’t sure what sounds better Greece or gin?!
Ray brings a fantastic 30 years’ experience and a wealth of knowledge to team Chameleon as he joins us business development manager for North Lincolnshire. He loves cooking although often refers to himself as a ‘frustrated chef’. His culinary skills don’t go a miss at family BBQs where he cooks up a storm for the whole family, including Bentley the labrador who makes short work of any leftovers! If he isn’t cooking you will find him on the golf course hitting more bad shots than good, however, in true Ray style, his positivity and sense of humour carry him through to the 19th where he has been known to be above par!
Sophia has worked in the furniture industry for over 15 years and joins our team as business development manager for the Greater Manchester, Merseyside and Cheshire region. She loves a challenge and has even climbed her fair share of mountains including Snowdon in Wales and Table Mountain in Cape Town. When she is isn’t risking her life on the side of a big rock, Sophia is jumping on a plane and jetting off across the globe to experience new cultures and even admits flying is one of her favourite parts of her trip! Rumour has it she thinks she has a pretty good singing voice and may or may not be the new Karaoke queen of the office.
The new editions to our team mean we’re ready and raring to tackle anything else 2020 and beyond can throw at us. We are looking forward to expanding our client base across the UK and Canada and getting stuck into some new and exciting projects!
