We are keen to introduce another member of the Retail Furniture family! This month we are celebrating Steve Gough and much to our amusement (not his!) asking him a few questions about himself.
Let’s go right back to the bright young age of 16 where Steve finished school and started working as a Bench Joiner. He then moved into the company office working on CAD (Computer-aided design). With a strong practical skillset and knowledge of both manufacturing and design, Steve changed his career path to managing several, large budgeted company accounts. Fast forward to March 2021 where Steve is one of 4 Directors at Retail Furniture. He’s a great entertainer within the office, contributing with sarcasm and witty remarks. If you need any help with anything, Steve’s a great guy to go to!
In his spare time Steve enjoys walking, mountain biking (occasionally), Gousto deliveries and watching his 2 sons playing football with one playing at academy level which means travelling around the country on the weekends. His current project ahead of Summer is planning and building his garden shed aka “The Bar!” – putting his joinery skills to use!
If you could travel to any country where would you go taking one essential item only?
“I would love to go back to Hawaii with my wife as we went there on our honeymoon. We had such a great time; however, we wouldn’t take the kids!”
If you were a superhero, what would your super power be?
“I would love to be able to fly!”
If you were to attend a dinner party with 5 people dead or alive…who would it be?
- Tom Hanks
- Jon Candy
- Holly Willoughby
- Margot Robbie
- Ant & Dec – they come as 1
My favourite thing about working at Retail Furniture is…
“Securing orders from an enquiry to seeing it complete and leaving the factory and the office banter”
