Our Team | About Us | Pinnacle Furniture

Our Team

An eclectic mix of characters, qualifications, skills and experience - some analytical, some creative, but all positive. We have developed a talented and enthusiastic workforce to ensure you are provided with top level support throughout your project.

Who Are We

  • Colin Dymond

    Colin is one of our very dedicated eightspace project managers and is a bit of a workaholic. So much so in fact that he often takes his laptop and site drawings with him into the shower.

  • Anthony Mallard

    When Anthony, our Production Manager, isn’t hard at work in our warehouse, he enjoys painting fine works of art. His most famous piece is entitled, ‘Polar bear eats marshmallows in snow storm’.

  • Andrew Ball

    Andrew is such an accomplished salesman that he has successfully managed to sell ice-cream in Alaska, mittens in the Amazon and hairdryers to the International Bald Men’s Association.

  • Dave Stanley

    Dave is both the literal and metaphorical father figure of the office. He is also responsible for, and relied upon, to let us know when it’s Friday, without which we would surely work through till Saturday.

  • Garth Davey

    On top of impressive financial management skills, Garth has extensive knowledge of lateral thinking puzzles, taxidermy and the exploits of Archibald Haddock.

  • Truan Stanley

    An avid footballer, Truan made his debut at Pinnacle Furniture in June 2018 joining the Operations Team. He is often seen tackling logistical issues to keep the ball rolling (all puns intended).

  • Dan Muraszko

    When Dan isn’t writing up comprehensive quotes for customers, he can often be found playing the drums for the amusement of one or more intergalactic warlord’s.

  • Emma Betts

    Emma has discovered a plus side to having both parents as teachers….she can embark on her ‘crazy’ educational interior designs with confidence, knowing that they will get meticulously examined at home for any flaws!

  • Daryl Stanley

    Like all great and glorious leaders Daryl can be found at the head of the charge, banner held aloft as his followers are spurred on to victory by his rousing rhetoric, “Once more unto the breach my employees!”

  • Fraser Thomson

    Frasers original brand of easy going nature inter mixed with witty quips has had such a positive influence on the office, it is now available as a twelve part self-help course on cassette.

  • Lucy Knappett

    Lucy is a crucial member of the accounts team and spends some of her time dealing with HMRC, much to her dismay. She has in fact become such a good negotiator that she is often called in to assist in the odd hostage situation or embassy siege.

  • Philippa Moss

    It is a little known fact that aside from managing projects for eightspace, Philippa is a member of a secret and very ancient society of furniture designers, who are said to have created the very first sofa-bed way back in 1264 AD.

  • Russell Gould

    Typically, our purchasing manager Russell is calm and collected. However it is said that when the moons of Venus are perfectly aligned he begins to run around the office excitedly and jump onto the furniture.

  • Bill Stanley

    Being at the helm of the Sales Team takes a lot of dedication and hard work especially at networking events. Just imagine the amount of champagne you’d have to drink. Bill manages to endure it, all for the greater good.

  • Dragos Badoid

    Dragos is a hardworking and efficient Warehouse Manager who has mastered overseeing furniture production and distribution- all with a cup of tea in hand.

  • Michael Hetherington

    Michael has done very well in his role as a project manager, much better than his brief foray into sheep herding where his inability to whistle caused a few communication issues with his ‘colleagues’.

  • Marcus Wheeler

    Our Latte Art King, Marcus is ever the perfectionist whether it’s estimating the value of a new project or creating a work of art in a mug! We’re waiting for him to master Dave Stanley’s face in Latte form.

  • Victoria Turier-Duerden

    A Design Technician inside and outside of the office, Victoria’s modified black cab is very impressive. It comes in handy when meeting clients – but please don’t put the meter on, Victoria!

  • Sheldon Gurr

    Scoring wins both in and out of the office, Sheldon’s skills in football help kick off new opportunities for the Business Development Team. You could say he is very goal orientated.

  • Fran Fraser

    Our car-boot fanatic Fran loves discovering and upcycling vintage furniture, inspired by her passion for all things design! So much so, it led her to her role as our newest Revit Technician.

  • Lea-Anne Puttick

  • Sergio Santos

    When Sergio, our skilled 3D Visualiser, is not transforming design concepts into a digitally immersive experience, he can be found exploring new and exciting destinations- just remember to take the VR goggles off, Sergio!

  • Puja Limbachia

    Puja’s abundance of creativity and energy not only helps her to create stylish garments but makes her the perfect fit for the Project Support Team.

  • Melanie Nurse

    When Mel isn’t managing our marketing campaigns, she can be found snorkelling in tropical seas, skiing down the Alps, or bodyboarding in the Australian waves- she shore keeps busy!

    When not managing projects, Matthew likes to coach his son’s rugby club, defend his STRAVA KOM, and drink whisky, although he hasn’t managed all three at once yet.

  • Indiana Stanley
