Farewell to Trade Sales Superstar Catherine – but only temporarily!
Last week our lovely colleague and usual blogger Catherine Ollier-Jones left us for a year long Parental Leave. This is what she had to say before she set off:
‘This week I leave Ecodek Towers to start my Parental leave for 1 year so this will be one of the last blog posts from me for a little while.
It will certainly be a different experience altogether now I am swapping my daily tasks of dealing with quotes and orders and am looking forward to becoming a full time mother. Welcome to the world of play days, nursery rhymes, wet wipes and dirty nappies!
Replacing me in my Trade Sales role is Tanya Abnett who has been training with me for last 2 months on all the commercial sales processes. Tanya is doing a great job, has settled into the team very well and will be managing your trade enquiries.
On Friday it was lovely of the team to club together and present me with a lovely gift, membership to Chester zoo for my husband and I – we can’t wait to take our little boy along!
I will certainly be paying a visit to the Islands to check out the benches made out of dark brown Ecodek Superstiff Bearers. The meerkats, penguins and all the other exciting exhibits await!
It will seem strange taking a year out as I’ve always worked, but it will probably go quite fast.
Thanks to the team for the lovely gifts and see you all soon – Catherine’
Wishing you all the very best, Catherine – we will miss you while you are gone!
