Meet the... Team: Lucy aka Boss Lady
What do you do at TF?
I oversee the running of TF & our team; from customer service to new products and Spotify playlists to marketing!
What work have you done before TF?
When I left University, I started work in Financial Services where I trained as a Mortgage & Protecion Advisor, I have worked always work in roles where advise and customer service came first.
I worked for an Oak Framing company, designing & estimating oak frames, which is where I met TF Scott :-) We were made redundant in 2012 and started our own Oak Framing & Carpentry business - TF Timbers.
In 2016 we then started TF Tools Ltd, while I also worked for a Contracts Manager for a Property Development company until TF Tools became enough work for me full time in 2018 :-)
What's your favourite tool we sell & why?
My favourite tool is the Martinez Alcatraz M1 15oz Titanium hammer, Scott came up with the name for this colour combo. It is one of our baddest looking hammers and the Orange is just stand out the best colour in their range for me.
What do you for fun?
I love being outdoors so spend a lot of time walking Tiggy & Nemo, our greyhound & lurcher in the countryside in Somerset. I also enjoying clay pigeon shooting, eating cake, drinking cider/wine and running (because of the cake, wine & cider). Also, love a good book and continuing my learning, recently I completed my MBA in Business which was pretty tough in Covid but very worthwhile and help us improve some of the processes in Team TF.
If you could eat or drink one food forever what would it be?
Pork scratchings.... I would probably regret this
What does working at TF mean to you?
I love the business we have built, our customers and team are our community & it's just awesome that as a small business you can just try new things out all the time, if they don't work, it doesn't matter but it's always fun
Favourite playlist to work to?
Following a recent team night out at a silent disco - D&B is my go-to playlist choice to keep us all buzzing through the day
