Fruition was established in 1997, and one of our longest serving members of staff and the backbone our business, is Frances Tilley. Frances, our Accounts Manager for nearly 9 years, is reducing her workload, and has just welcomed her 4th grand child into the world, so she wants to spend more time with her family.
Our loss is their gain, and whilst we are very sad and will miss her very much, we wish her all the very best in the future.
Our replacement is Jenny Pichowski. Jenny will be managing some of our design projects us as well as looking after our accounts.
Jenny is from Dartmouth and has had a varied career, from car dealerships to the Flavel Arts Centre in Dartmouth, to Accounts Manager for Riverside Engineering. She is bright, bubbly, has an eye for detail and is always willing to tackle new projects. We know she will fit in really well with the team here at Fruition.
Jenny has a passion for fundraising for charity, particularly for the Children’s Hospice SW. She has completed many charitable events for them, including organising a highly successful ball and walking, running and cycling for miles around the South West.
The Delicious Dart Trail, a trail running event (in aid of CHICKS, a charity providing respite care for children from all over the UK) is one of her favourites and she completes this every year. In 2011 & 2012, Jenny completed the London Marathon for CHSW, in just over 4 hours 30 minutes, an amazing feat, and we think this shows her resilience and dedication. In total Jenny has raised over £20k for the hospice.
Her two children, inspired by their mum, also get involved regularly, to make fundraising a real family affair. Phil, Jenny’s husband, is a metal manufacturer, also based in Dartmouth. Jenny’s next charity event for the Children’s hospice is in July, the Ride for Precious Lives 210 mile ride and we wish her the very best with this challenge.
Jenny loves socialising with her friends and family, keeping fit and enjoying life. As well as many other skills, she makes the best meringues, they are amazing! Worth popping into the office for a coffee for…
She is looking forward to getting stuck into Fruition life and helping Mark and the team run design projects seamlessly from start to finish.
