It’s time again to meet another member of our fabulous team here at Tom Smith. This time, it’s the turn of Catherine Duggan, our Ancillary & AYR Cards Distribution Supervisor. One of our key team members, Cath is responsible for supervising teams of personnel, ensuring we meet customer deadlines and liasing with all relevant departments. Cath has been at the company for twenty years so she really knows it inside out! Her husband Shawn also works for us so it’s a real family affair!
We asked her a few different questions about what she does all year round for us.
I’ve been managing outside suppliers and arranging collection and distribution via UPS from Luton.
Meeting our targets and supplying product accurately and in time.
Maybe someone in design, I am quite creative at home.
I would say Shawn Duggan for obvious reasons, I have to live with him! However I am going to say Andrea Heaver in Technical, she is always so cheerful and helpful and makes me laugh!
Baking gluten free cakes / trying to master pastry.
Clothing – I find that I always picture what i’m looking for in my mind but can never seem to find it.
Grey – much to my husband’s annoyance I have painted almost every room in the house a different shade of Grey! 🙂
Receiving a special 30th Birthday cake – there were 2 cakes – a ‘3’ and a ‘0’. Sue Chivers announced over the tanoy system that it was my birthday whilst I was carrying it across the shopfloor, I went a lovely shade of pink!
The bottle boxes, I think they’re a great Idea!
The accreditation of the Royal warrant.
Miniature bottles of wine! 🙂
I love putting up my Christmas tree and adding the finishing touches (Christmas Crackers). I often take 2 hours putting up just my tree.
