Sustainability is high on the agenda for Regional Business Manager, Lynn Boyson who has a passion for the environmental friendly products that James Tobias have innovated and designed using sustainable materials including our RPC EcoWall.
What does your role involve?
My role at James Tobias is focused on client relationships, working with those we are currently implementing projects for and to those who are currently going through the quote process. Representing a business that has a 30 year legacy of innovation and products that are of exceptional quality enables me to have innovative conversations with those I work with across England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.
How long have you worked at James Tobias?
I’ve now been here three years, James Tobias has such a supportive culture, people really care about their colleagues, clients and the products that we as a business are producing. Phil, our MD, has a great style of running the business, where we all feel valued and look forward to doing the best we can for our clients.
How did you get into the industry?
I come from a different background to most, my background isn’t in furniture manufacturing but within sales as a Commercial Manager for newspapers and Account Management roles for Yellow Pages, Property Finder (now Purple Bricks) and Autotrader. Many of those skills however were transferable, most importantly building relationships which in turn keeps our customers and their supporting teams informed and happy. I’m really proud to have developed my career at James Tobias and really enjoy the progression, relationships I’ve made and being able to deliver on projects which are interesting, sustainable and innovative.
Do you have a particular sector focus?
I work largely with fit out firms and design companies who are looking to refurb office buildings throughout the UK as well as schools and hotels that require our services.
What’s your career highlight so far?
There are so many projects that I’m proud to be part of, World In Motion was the first really unique project that I had worked on, creating a stunning corporate boardroom. Thatchers Cider is another which maximised space and had innovative design features and sustainable materials including our storage wall product StorageWall. The coffee bar at Bristol University was also another really unique project which I loved working on.
How do innovation and sustainability feature in your work?
They feature in our day to day conversations and it’s something I’m really passionate about when discussing projects with our customers. There are so many innovative products and finishes, many which are sustainable and have been innovated by our in-house team of manufacturers. We are actively working to reduce our environmental footprint for our products, services, office locations and supply chain.
