Meet The Team
Anton has almost 20 years experience in customer led operations across the IT and hospitality sectors. Anton was born and brought up in Cambridge and has an in-depth knowledge and enthusiasm of the Historic city of Cambridge and what it has to offer. When he is not working Anton loves fast cars and also antiques and Fine Arts and can often be found sneaking off to London and the Fine Arts Auctions!
Darren brings with him over 10 years of experience in the hotel industry, with his last post as the Operations Manager at the prestigious Varsity Hotel. With innovation, organisation and customer service at his core, Darren likes nothing better than enhancing the Signet customer experience and refining our work methodologies to operate ever more efficiently. When not at work Darren likes to roam the globe and has already lived and worked in Canada for a year which he loved – he also tells me Asia is next on his list to visit. One of his other loves is chocolate (he’s a complete chocoholic) so please don’t leave your chocolates anywhere near him!
When we asked Nicoletta what she liked doing when she was not working she immediately replied with a mischievous smile ‘sleeping’! But joking apart when Nicoletta is not at work she is a very accomplished ‘super-cook’ and can turn her hand to baking cakes to fine dining main courses. Her specialities include a Romanian dish called Sarmale with Pork and we have recently found out she is making Darren our GM a Tiramisu for his Birthday this year. Mmmm – we are looking forward to that!
Laura is quite the bookworm and has said she loves reading almost any genre or type of book. She is also a fan of home cooking but her favorite dish of all is the humble pancake complete with sugar AND nutella which she regularly cooks for her lucky boyfriend. When Laura is out and about, she likes walking through Cambridge and exploring all it has to offer and also enjoys walking through the beautiful parks by the river. Laura also likes to travel further afield and says her favorite holiday destinations so far have been Italy and Spain. However she also tells me she has her sights set even further afield for her next break as she plans to head to the big ol’ USA.
Peggy is our lovely super friendly office dog. Originally from Romania she was born on the street in a shivering minus 20 degrees. A rescue charity bought her over here to England and now she lives a good life with us. Being a beautiful mongrel we wondered what breeds she was and so we decided to do a DNA test. The results were surprising to say the least. She is 24% Miniature Dachshund and 12% Pekinese – what we want to know is where did those long legs came from!
May has a wealth of experience of managing schedules and teams in the busy world of television and radio. Overseeing the overall operational side to Signet, she ensures our high company standards are consistently met and exceeded. May is an avid reader and is part of a local book club. She also loves keeping fit and dives for the Cambridge diving club and has recently started to do ice-skating. A mom of two, May successfully manages to juggle her many tasks!
Vilette has been in the hospitality line for over 20 years. She worked with Emirates airlines when starting out and travelled far and wide and raising a family while living around the world. Cambridge has always been home, which she knows very well. Vilette has travelled and lived as far to the West in New Orleans and Vancouver, and to the East in Hongkong and Bali, besides most of the Middle Eastern countries and Asia. She enjoys meeting and greeting guests and welcoming them after their long journeys. In her free time Vilette loves going to the cinema, music concerts and plays. Besides her love for cooking which pleases her family, her love for photography knows no bounds.
Anna-Maria is a Netflix fan and says her two favorite genres are Scary horror and slushy Romance (that’s quite a mix), with her all time top film being ‘August Rush’. If you see her don’t getting her started on it – she wont leave you alone until you agree you will watch it someday! She also has a weakness for shopping days out and is always on the lookout for little things her son would love as a present. When she is not doing any of the above she loves to take a stroll in our lovely Cambridge parks.
Jose is an accomplished gardener and grows Pak choy, sweetcorn and strawberries amongst others and also enjoys tending to his many roses. When he is not in the garden he is an avid ‘all action’ film devotee with, Fast and furious, Die Hard and Bad Boy amongst them – if the world needs saving Jose could well be your man! Jose has got the travelling bug and had holidayed in some pretty far-flung places including New York, Tokyo and even went all the way to Disney land in Singapore with his two grown-up children – what a trip.
Teo loves relaxing in the great outdoors and must be an incredibly patient lady as she loves fishing! Cambourne just outside Cambridge is apparently the place to be as she frequently pulls out 7 kilo fish which sounds pretty big to me… although we haven’t seen any photographic evidence as yet! When not with her rod and reel Teo likes reading romantic novels and cooking up a storm in the kitchen where she likes things spicy and says her signature dish is Spaghetti Pomodoro – yum! Teo also has a grown up daughter of 21 who she loves to spend relaxing down time with.
