Amy Rowley is Danilo’s Sales Office Manager, who has a proficient background working in retail. She has indulged her passion for art and design over the past few years and has even studied and gained a qualification in graphic design, inspiring her to follow trends and culture within the art and design world.

Since joining Danilo Promotions in 2016, Amy has fully immersed herself in the culture and dynamics of the Danilo team, and continues to give fantastic customer service whilst always striving to maximise sales and she remains a strong asset to the company.

So, in order to get to know Amy a little bit better, we asked her a few questions about herself and her career…

1.What was your previous job to Danilo?

Before joining Danilo my first ever job was in retail, aged 16, which spanned across 6 years, in various companies and departments such as admin and customer services.

2. What do you most enjoy about your role at Danilo?

My role is very diverse, no two days are the same at Danilo. I enjoy working in such a friendly industry and I also love working with so many fun and exciting brands every day, especially Disney and Harry Potter to name a few!

3.Who would play you in a film of your life?

I quite like the idea of the film of my life being an animation so I would like to see myself brought to life as a cartoon character 😊

4.What 3 words would friends / family / colleagues use to describe you?

I think I would be described as patient, fun and probably clumsy!

5. Whose Calendar have you got on your wall this year?

This year I have the Disney vintage posters calendar, it’s on my fridge and features lots of my childhood faves like Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan, it’s great and is obviously a Danilo calendar!

6.What is the best piece of advice you’ve received?

Always treat everybody the way you would like to be treated!

Danilo’s National Sales Manager, Deryl Thomas, comments: “Amy is a very proficient employee and provides invaluable support to the account managers such as myself. She is professional and has a very positive manner when dealing with customers. A great asset to the sales team.”

Q & A WITH NEWEST ADDITION TO THE SALES TEAM, JULIE ANDERSON

Renowned industry executive, Julie Anderson joined our expanding national sales team in April, bringing with her a wealth of industry experience. As Senior National Account Manager, Julie is responsible for overseeing some major retail accounts for the company. So, hot on the heels of her settling in, we asked Julie a few questions to find out a little more about her…

1.What was your previous job to Danilo?

My previous role was National Account Manager for Pioneer Europe Ltd ( I was selling balloons and partyware).  Prior to that my career had been as follows; 15 years for Hallmark, 10 years for Carte Blanche and 3 years for Gemma.

2. What are you most looking forward to in your new role at Danilo?

An opportunity to work for Danilo doesn’t come along very often, so whilst I was happy working for Pioneer Europe, I just felt that when this position became available, it was the right move for me.

I am particularly looking forward to getting back into the wonderful world of cards and wrap/calendars and diaries.  Although my last 2 years were out of the industry, prior to that I had done 28 years within it.. Therefore I am very excited about working with this product category again, working with some amazing customers I have met along the way plus new customers and finally working closely with the dynamic Danilo team.

3.What do you consider your greatest achievement to date?

I would probably say bringing up my 2 wonderful daughters whilst working full time… oooh and not having a day off sick for over 15 years!

4.Who would play you in a film of your life?

It would have to be the amazing Helen Mirren – a strong, classic and determined lady.

5.What 3 words would friends / family / colleagues use to describe you?

I asked my friends this question as I didn’t think it fair to answer it myself… they said considerate, determined and hardworking… and if I was allowed a 4th word I’m sure many people would say chatty!

6.What is the best piece of advice you’ve received?

Always treat everybody the way you would like to be treated!

Danilo sales director, Brett Smith, comments: “I’ve known Julie for many years and have always admired her professionalism and can-do attitude. She always goes above and beyond to look after her customers and that’s exactly the philosophy we all have here at Danilo. Julie brings some invaluable experience and will fit in perfectly with the existing team.”

So a big welcome to the team Julie from all of us 😊
