To be honest, this feels a little weird; we’re far more comfortable discussing the latest interior design trends, top tips or showing you the projects we’ve recently been working on. But sometimes it’s good to share some backstage insider information, especially when it enables you to see exactly who you’ll be dealing with when you make that initial contact with Shutterland (aka) Bromley Blinds and who you’ll have pop by your home or office space to design or install your bespoke light control solutions.
So now you know who’s who. Here’s the insider scoop:
Andy – Surveyor/MD/Director
Andy’s been a specialist in Light Control Solutions and the Interior Design market for over 20 years. He’s a founding partner of Shutterland & Bromley Blinds and previously ran a huge corporate blinds agency on the South Coast, serving clients in the commercial and domestic sectors. His motivation for starting Shutterland came from a desire to create a company that was large enough to fulfil any order for the largest corporate customers, but small enough to deliver a totally bespoke design and fitting product service for all its private customers. Shutterland has achieved just that; from day one you’re assigned your own personal surveyor. They ensure that every step of your home improvement service is expertly managed in an entirely stress-free manner.
What you need to know about Andy: he’s addicted to Victoria Sponge. So much so that he’s currently trying to find a support group (one that provides cake samples at every session).
Billy – Surveyor
Billy makes sure the design, quotation and installation of your light control products is a totally seamless process from start to finish. He also gets asked (on average) every 17 minutes if he is the gentleman that stars as Juan in the Plenty advert (no, it’s not him – but the likeness is totally uncanny – isn’t it?!)
Chris – Fittings & Installation Manager
Chris’s attention to detail is what makes the installation process of your products seamless. If a shutter door is out of alignment by just half a millimetre, Chris can tell you from standing 10 metres away. It’s this same superstar precision that once enabled Chris to install and arrange 97 clothes pegs onto his own face. We’re still pestering him for a picture to share with you.
Nick – Fitter
Nick’s already had a blog post entirely devoted to his skills (plus a video of him completing an installation), so we’re going to keep it brief. He’s the most recent recruit to Shutterland and in his spare time totally nails Mai Thai. (The martial art, not the cocktail).
Adam – Fitter
Steve’s part of our friendly fitting team here at Shutterland. He’s got lots of experience and this includes his role as resident (superstar) DJ. Recordings of his Deep House and Old Skool Garage mixes provide the ultimate on-board van entertainment when our installations team are travelling in between jobs.
Tom – Business Operations/Administrator/Logistics
Tom was baptised in Bethlehem. Quite simply, he’s been a guiding star of business operations ever since. At Bromley Blinds, Tom is the oil to the finely tuned machinery. He ensures everything happens a) on schedule and b) brilliantly.
Here at Shutterland HQ, we pride ourselves on delivering to you the highest levels of product service and customer care. It takes a great business team to ensure that those things consistently remain our number one priority. Right from day one, back in 2009, we’ve welcomed new additions after really careful consideration. For us, it’s more than finding an employee with the necessary skills and credentials; we only choose team members who fit fully with our ethos and are keen to uphold the really high professional standards that we are totally committed to providing for our clients.
So, future team developments? We’ve actually got a new fitter joining our talented installation team. His name is Adam and he starts next week. We’re going to be tasking him with our trickiest installations and compiling a rigorous interview for him to respond to whilst he’s on the job completing them. We’ll report back on that shortly!
