A little more about the guys & girls who work at Sashed.
Hi, I’m Sam Mitchell, managing director at Sashed, thanks for visiting our site. I always like to know a little bit about the people I buy from, so here’s little about the people behind Sashed.
I grew up with windows and doors around me from a very young age. My mum had a leadership role in one of the largest domestic and commercial aluminium & uPVC manufacturers in Northern Ireland so windows and doors have always been in my blood. Instead of going into the family business I followed my passion for computers and took my first job in IT with America Online (AOL) in Dublin. I later moved to London and continued my technology career holding senior roles in large companies such as BT and IBM.
Since moving to London I’ve been involved in, managed and directed several small-scale property developments. While shopping around for windows and doors, I had some disappointing experiences and it got me thinking that there must be a better way of buying timber windows and doors. Like you, I use the internet to shop around before I buy. I like to be in charge, be informed, and find the best product and service at the best possible price before I buy. So I set out to make buying windows and doors as easy and hassle-free as possible.
In my previous roles I’ve seen how technology can transform businesses and industries and wanted to do the same for the timber window and door industry in the UK. I’ve also worked in highly ethical environments where honesty, trust, openness, responsiveness, and respect are important and I feel they are fundamental to any business success.
My goal is to employ good business ethics and leverage technology to deliver premium products at affordable prices to everyone in the UK.
…and that was the genesis of Sashed – exceptional timber windows and doors, backed by great customer service.
Sharing my idea with friends and colleagues, several were enthusiastic and keen to help me deliver my vision. Four of us together set out to create a company which is independent, ethical and transparent and one which offers you choice, good value, and convenience. Let me introduce you to the team:
Amanda Purrington heads up marketing. Amanda is an experienced marketer, having held a number of senior marketing and PR roles in business-to-business environments.
With years of operational experience as head of faculties for a large retail chain, Steven Hanson is head of operations and always knows the status of an order.
Our Chief Bean Counter is Chris Purrington, a Fellow Chartered Certified Accountant, who’s held many management roles in technology companies and keeps an eye on the pennies.
Joining the team in June 2018, Pat Short is our Programme Director and also heads up our installation teams. Originally from New Zealand, Pat is a skilled carpenter and joiner with many years of experience installing and refurbishing sash windows, and also specialist glazing.
The latest addition out our team is Joel Rosenthal who has been appointed as the Sashed sales manager. Joel comes from a background of varied sales roles in both the UK and in Hong Kong, however the majority of his sales experience is within the London Property industry. Here, Joel developed a keen interest for London’s varied Architecture and is passionate about conserving period looks for years to come.
