MEET THE TEAM…An interview with…Lorraine Finch PA to MD and Customer Services Manager
As our way of helping you, our lovely readers, to get to know the Danilo Team a bit better, every month we will now be posting a fun interview from one of our fab employees.
This month, we are getting to know the fabulous Lorraine, who has been with Danilo since the very beginning 35 years ago!
She tells us how she came to work for Danilo: “My sister in law worked for Laurence’s brother and she told me Laurence was looking for someone, our office was in Bath Street EC1 about 10 x 20 feet with one desk that we shared in the beginning I really knew I was there to stay when I got my own desk!!”
She continues: “I remember when we advertised the Elvis calendar in the press and various magazines, the Post Office van arrived with sack loads, I sat and opened every envelope and banked all the Cheques and postal orders then packed the envelopes along with Laurence and various members of my family.”
She says of MD Laurence “He has always been such a good person to work for, I don’t think I could have found a better boss. We had such fun in the early days and I still love working here now, its such a friendly company!”
