A self-confessed perfectionist who loves a challenge. With over 20 years experience in sales, finance and management and more recently marketing and social media I have a real can do attitude with a hands on approach.
Fuelled by decent coffee in the day and a good G&T by night doesn't go amiss.
I've worked at RefTech since 2010, initially just as a software tester but recently my role has diversified, now including documentation, training and support. I work with every department and have a broad knowledge of the company and the lifecycle of an event.
Before joining RefTech and the events industry, I studied music at the University of Edinburgh and this is still one of my main hobbies. I am a singer, pianist, songwriter and guitarist. I regularly play at open mic nights around the area, performing a selection of my favourite songs. I also co-host a weekly New Country radio show with my husband Dean (a developer at RefTech) and we're enjoying helping to raise the profile of UK country music.
I have a passion for food and drink, in particular sampling the local cuisine of the different countries I visit on my travels.
My favourite drink is wine (specifically prosecco) and I enjoy learning about the many different varieties.
I have been with RefTech for over 10 years; I have 2 roles, Mailing fulfilment and PA to Simon, Chief Ideas Officer, to whom I have been married for 12 years. We have 2 daughters and 3 cats that are called Mork, Mindy and Nanu.
I enjoy travelling (I call these holidays, but many of you know Simon doesn't do holidays as he never stops working) I like photography, sewing, music, comedy and binge watching NetFlix! My biggest obsession is playing Pokemon Go! (Yes, people still play Pokemon Go!).
There is always a great atmosphere at RefTech and everyone has a laugh, especially at one of Simon's jokes (unless you have heard it for the 5th time that day).
I enjoy most food and alcohol, I dislike gin, dark chocolate and grapefruit.
After working in the theme park industry since I left school back in 1990, I joined RefTech in April 2019 where I have become part of the operations team.
In my spare time I like to visit cities, castles, stately homes and theme parks. Also when the weather is nice, I like to do a bit of gardening, although I did try to grow some tomatoes once which didn't turn out well.
I love a good cup of tea or a bottle of 7up free, however if you see me out on the town it will most likely be a Vodka, soda and blackcurrant.
I joined RefTech in April 2018, and I'm loving the role and being part of the team. I have had over 20 years of experience in various accounts roles, however I am new to the events industry, but looking forward to learning about a new business.
I am married with 2 grown up boys and have the joy to own a beautiful springer spaniel called Luna, she is the best dog ever.
I enjoy baking lots and lots of cupcakes and enjoy one or two gin and tonics at the weekend.
Having been a designer since 2010 I have had the great fortune of working on some truly inspiring projects, working with companies such as Disney and Universal Studios I have become an ‘all round designer’ learning everything from animation to Illustration. I also proudly hold two design awards and a qualification in master of UI/UX design
In my spare time you’ll probably find me painting or annoying my neighbours on the drums… basically anything but doing proper exercise.
I have worked as a web/software developer since 1999 and joined RefTech in early 2015 which was my first experience of the events industry.
My hobbies are mainly technology and gadget related but I also like to cook and dabble with DIY.
My favourite drink is Coffee.
Jess joined RefTech when she was 12 weeks old back in 2012. Now a fully-fledged member of the team Jess keeps you in check with regular walks outside, she likes to promote a healthy work balance. When not barking for treats she enjoys lying on the board room table listening to what's going on and sleeping on the bottom of the tea trolley.
Her favourite drink is water, her favourite treats are Schmackos and in her spare time she socialises with other dogs like her.
