What year did you start your job?
Why did you join Fisher German?
Why wouldn’t I?! Fisher German is going places...a long history of excellent customer service and award winning technical expertise with a strong culture of entrepreneurship, innovation and leadership. This is an exciting place to be particularly as we move forward to our next phase of growth and evolution.
Most admired, non-property brand?
Perhaps a little cliché but Chanel…classic elegant enduring style.
Torn between a really good drinks party and a weekend in Anglesey with the family walking along a blustery beach eating ice cream!
Best holiday destination?
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic…unashamed luxury at a snail’s pace – heaven!
One item to take to a desert island?
Nothing I would loathe more than being on a deserted beach – I'd be so bored! So, I simply wouldn’t go!
Who would you like to be stranded in a lift with?
A lift engineer
What’s your favourite film of all time?
Bridges of Madison County. Although I also love James Bond (he can save the world in 24 hours, mix a decent cocktail and rustle up a quiche in a sky chalet – what’s not to like!)
