Clare explained in her own words what her job role involves: “Primarily I am building and managing relationships with our cases trade customers. Instead of a traditional face and representation of the business, I am working very closely with the customer assisting with new opportunities for growth, promoting the capabilities of the business and giving our customers the edge in their market sector. My role is not just working with the buyer, it is beyond that, in fact I work closely with owners, sales teams and designers. In the trade sector, all of these people care deeply about their customers and that is where I focus my attentions.”

Everyone has a ‘can-do’ attitude and is willing to help, no matter what. We all seem to pull together.”
