Meet the team: Paul Downey, Warehouse Operative at Retail Furniture. 

We wanted to end the week on a high! What’s better than to introduce you to another popular member of our Retail Furniture family.

Paul was born and raised in Manchester, until he moved to Telford 8 years ago. He started out working part time front of stage for all the concerts at Manchester Evening Arena. Quite the experience!

Paul has seen some fantastic live musicians, sport matches and performance shows during his time working at MEN – especially Kylie Minogue!

After working part time, Paul worked as a Stock Controller at the Cookie Coach Company. However, the company was bought out meaning that a job search was on the cards or relocation. He chose to move to Coventry where he was made Warehouse/Stock Buyer.

Paul has been a valuable asset to our Retail Furniture team for over 7 years! His hard work and determination does not go unnoticed.

When he first started he worked in the Machine Shop, running the Edge Bander and Bonding Machine. Ensuring all client jobs were running smoothly and on time. Since then, he moved onto Warehouse Driving – a skill which is a lot harder than it seems!

Outside of work, Paul enjoys exploring England with his wife. Enjoying coastal walks and browsing around the local tourist sites. Once the pandemic is over and travelling becomes easier, Paul can’t wait to jet off to somewhere hot – mainly to top up his tan! Bring it on!

Now, it’s time for some quick fire round questions! 

If you could be in any movie, what would it be and what character would you play?
“John McClane, Bruce Willis in Die Hard, he plays such a lovable character, I just love watching any Die Hard films”

You have your own late-night talk show, who do you invite as your first guest and what would you like to know about them?
“Piers Morgan. I would like to know if he gets a kick about getting under people’s skin…”

Which 5 people would you like at your dinner table?
“Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Jeremy Clarkson, Samuel L Jackson, James Corden” Every guest has something unique about them!
