JO SAYS GOODBYE TO DANILO!

Today is a sad day for Danilo! Even though it’s a Friday (and its rare for us not to be super happy on a Friday), today marks our amazing Logistics Account Manager Jo Sullivan’s last ever day working with us. 😦

Jo has been a treasured member of the Danilo team for 12 years and we want to take this opportunity to thank her for all her hard work. But before she goes, we just had a few questions to ask….

1)    How does it feel to be leaving the company after 12 years?

I do feel very sad to be leaving Danilo after all these years. I love the people here and have really enjoyed working on all my accounts. Whilst there have been challenges along the way, I’ve found this job to be really rewarding. It is going to feel so strange not to work here anymore. I would like to thank Danilo for the opportunity they gave me and I will miss everyone very much.

2)    How did you come to work for Danilo?

It feels like such a long time ago, but if I remember correctly, I got a call from an agency saying there was a job going at an Official Calendar Publishers as a Production Assistant. After successfully making it through the interviews, I began my new role here in 2003. After approx. 5 years working in the Production Office I then moved up in the company, quite literally, as I moved upstairs to join the Customer Services Department.

3)    What have been your favourite memories of working here?

Wow that’s a tough one! I will miss the people I go to lunch with everyday, as we always have a laugh together. Winning a Supplier Award with ASDA has been another highlight, as this was one of the accounts I looked after, so I was very proud. Doing the ice bucket challenge in front of all my colleagues for charity is another favourite but I do have very special memories of everybody here. I’ll miss you all very much!

4)    So what is next for you?

Well I am moving to Peacehaven, to hopefully start a new chapter in my life. Work wise I’m not sure what I want to do yet. I might try something different or even train in something else. I love animals (especially dogs!) and children, and really enjoy meeting people, so who knows, the world is my oyster! .So look out Peacehaven here I come!!!

We wish you the best of Luck Jo!

Love the Danilo Team x

We are delighted to announce that we have teamed up with Nickelodeon to create a brand new greetings card and gift wrap range for CGI action-adventure series Paw Patrol.

First launched on Nick Jr in November 2013, Paw Patrol has also appeared on Milkshake with 7.3million viewers tuning in so far across the two channels, where series one has already aired, season two is being broadcast later this year and season three is in development for showing early in 2016. And according to NPD, Paw Patrol is now the official number one new pre-school toy property and the top show on Nick Jr.

We will be showcasing our initial Paw Patrol range, alongside other new exciting additions, at the PG Live show in London on 2nd and 3rd June (stand 513). The range will include cards, wrap and bags, with designs covering both boys and girl ages, relation captions and gift bags, plus roll wrap as well as sheet wrapping paper.

“We are delighted to join the growing list of Paw Patrol licensees, and to be working on such a fun and entertaining show that is enjoying a huge TV audience,” said Trevor Jones, Licensing Director at Danilo. “PG Live will be an exciting time to showcase this great new range and believe it could be one of strongest performing ranges for 2015”
