Let’s join together to celebrate International Women’s Day 2022.
At Garageflex we are proud to have so many women included in our team from Design Consultants to Marketing and from Customer Services to Accounts. They are an integral part of our company and so we wanted to give a little shout out to them.
Here’s a little more about each of our team members…
Abigail Leonard – Design Consultant
Abi started her career in Investment Banking Sales in 1996, working for both Merrill Lynch and Credit Suisse for a period of 15 years, focussing primarily on Foreign Exchange.
In 2006 Abi met Alastair in London when she arranged for her own garage to be fitted out. She and her husband loved the product so much that they took the Garage Organisation concept to South Africa in 2008.
Fast forward to 2017 and she returned to the UK where she is now delighted to be part of the Garageflex team. Having been both a customer and a supplier of this incredible system, she says with the greatest confidence “Once you have had this system, you will never want to live without it.”
Serena Edwards – Design Consultant
Serena joined the team in 2021 and will be working alongside Alastair Broom and Abigail Leonard on the Design Consultancy team. Serena’s role will be working with our customers to achieve the best design for their garage space and conducting presentations in person and virtually.
Serena has substantial international experience in Sales, Marketing, Communications and Finance working in Australia, the USA, Europe and the UK, primarily working across the Consumer Goods and Pharmaceutical industries.
Serena had the Garageflex team install her garage back in 2019 and states that the transformation has given her the ability to declutter and store everything in one place.
Barbara Broom – Accounts
Barbara takes care of all the accounts side of the Garageflex business and keeps everything running smoothly.
Formerly Cabin Crew for ‘the’ national carrier, she then ran her own soft furnishings business when her children were young. When Alastair set up Garageflex in 2005, Barbara decided to help out and became a permanent fixture of the team.
Barbara works two days a week on a Monday and Wednesday. On other days she can be found on the golf course, gardening, painting or reading as well as enjoying family life with grandchildren.
