Explain what you do
Hi my name is Jenny and I am the owner of Purple Holly which was founded over six years ago.
What did you do before Purple Holly?
I worked as a Human Resources Manager for an information technology firm, the NHS and a University. I also had a stint as a recruitment consultant and I started my working life in the hotel industry.
What makes you excited to work at Purple Holly?
Our customers and providing a personalised customer service. We talk directly with our customers and we are always excited to launch a new product range that people love to buy for their home or as a gift for a loved one.
Favourite social media
Facebook because we can engage directly with our customers and we also run to some great competitions to keep things fresh.
Most famous person you’ve ever met
The Queen (Not really, but I’m hoping one day…)
Favourite thing about running your own business
Being my own boss. Each day is different with a new challenge.
Puppies or kittens?
Kittens (or kittens covered in puppies)
I love to eat curry (or any food really). I’ve done a few runs for charity but I definitely didn’t come last…
Fun fact about you
I often talk or sing (badly) to myself and have a broad taste in music from Ed Sheeran to Abba.
