Job title: Jack of all trades masquerading as Joint MD
20 years after leaving the police to join his wife in the baby business, Jeremy is still adjusting. When pressed he couldn’t give a straight answer as to which has been more exciting! The ultimate salesman whose energy and enthusiasm has helped bring the business to where it is today.
Jeremy in 30 seconds:
Tea or Coffee? Coffee – Black no sugar
Favourite Takeaway? Pynes Cornish Pasty
Favourite aspects of your job at Hippychick? Seeing products go out of the door! Reading good feedback, and working with a great team
Recent TV series binge? Lupin – Slick French show with Omar Sy
3 songs to motivate you on a Monday morning?
Sweet Home Alabama – Lynyrd Skynyrd, Get Lucky – Daft Punk, I gotta feeling – Black Eyed Peas.
Interesting fact about yourself? Very accident prone….probably have more scars and oddly (mis)shaped bones than everyone else put together
Favourite Hippychick memory?
Too many to count, but love remembering how we started and then looking at where we are now. The journey from the first sale to anyone, first lorryload, first container to then winning various business awards has been a hugely exciting one.
What 3 Hippychick products would you take on a desert island and why?
- Hippychick Cotton Kingsize Flatsheet Bed Protector will double very well as a blanket, a sheet, a towel, a waterproof canopy, a flag to wave at rescuers, etc
- A Classic World Noah’s Ark to remind me of the fact that they all survived a similar experience
- A Nattou giant 75cm teddy will keep me company and make a great pillow
Survival chances 5/10 – The usual confidence from Jeremy, but he’s pinning all his hopes on the versatile Bed Protector. Coupled with his self-confessed accident prone nature, one problem with the sheet and he’ll be needing a real life Ark.
