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!
Sheridan comes to us brimming with experience having run cleaning operations across 34 sites. With so many staff working for him in his past life, he is well versed with juggling his many tasks and ensuring our properties look beautiful. When not at work Sheridan is a keen watcher and player of football. Indeed he played for Norwich and Peterborough teams so quite the talent. Interestingly he is left footed (hence he can play on the left wing) but right handed, which only 8% of the population have. So now you know. He also confesses to being a complete foodie with a good old fashioned steak being his dish of choice (medium rare if you are asking) and the restaurants Brampton Mill and Mina is where he is mostly to be found.
Vanessa has got 4 grandchildren who she absolutely adores and spends as much time as possible with and according to vanessa they in turn absolutely adore spending her money! Vanessa is another shopper by the way (so at least she knows who they get it from). When not shopping her (very young) grandson drags her off to look at trains which are duly videoed for posterity. Even if its freezing and its time to go just ‘10 more minutes pleeeease’ he says. Pretty dedicated stuff we say. Vanessa also takes great pleasure in her garden and pays special attention to her beautiful flower boxes which she particularly enjoys.
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.
Magda is our very own shopaholic and Cambridge is her preferred hunting ground. What do you buy I ask her – ‘shoes and everything’ she says with a wave of her arm across the horizon. Everything ? I say, ‘yes’ comes the answer. Blimey. (note to self: don’t give her the company bank cards again). Magda is also a great cook with Samale being her go-to dish – Sour cabbage leaves stuffed with a mix of pork/beef ground meat, slow cooked in tomato sauce with some smoked bacon and fresh thyme – if you’re asking. I’ve had Samale in the past and its highly recommended by the way.
Milena is quite the sporty type and is equally happy at the Gym or heading off into the distance on her bike. Where do you go I ask ’all around’ she say says sweeping her arm across the UK countryside. When not traversing Cambridgeshire Milena like to read Criminal and romantic novels mixed with a bit of the dark stuff from Steven King. Favourite novel? Hands down The Fairytale apparently, which isn’t quite the fairytale if you know what I mean. Other than that Milena like to socialize, spend time with friends and to PARTY (said with a glint in her eye)
Peppa is our latest doggy addition and gets a whole lot of love from everybody in the morning. So called as she is a sausage dog with her name coming from Peppa pig – get it? My daughters idea not mine. Small but feisty is how I would describe her on a good day but on a bad day something else entirely. These small creatures are single minded in what they want and trying to stop them is not as easy as you might think. I began to research how to train a dachshund and came a cross a book called ‘How to survive a dachsund’ which tells you all you need to know. The mistress of mayhem has arrived.
