I now live in Menston in Yorkshire, but I’m from a large Irish family, so Dublin is my second home and I love to return whenever I can. One of my other favourite places is Hong Kong, where I was fortunate enough to live and work for 4 years.
I am fairly new to Damart, joining the business in July 2017, my early impressions of Damart are that it is quite a unique business. One which has a backbone based on strong family business values and which operates to the highest professional standards, with a commitment to delivering exceptional customer service and doing the right thing for customers.
I spent 11 years as Marketing Director at McCormick Foods so I have experience of being focused on doing the right thing for customers by channelling our energy into being the best in our marketplace, and I hope to bring some of that enthusiasm and drive to Damart.
I am passionate about retail, I love to follow trends and shopping is a good way to do this - I especially enjoy looking at new retail concepts to understand the customer proposition and how that has been translated into the product offer, the merchandising and display.
I also really enjoy cooking for family and friends – I’m as happy cooking for 20 people as I am for 1 or 2 and I’m always on the lookout for interesting new ingredients to try
