I manage the day to day running of this global fast paced furniture dealership representing the world’s leading furniture manufacturer and workplace insights company, Steelcase. I “fell” in to the industry 17 Years ago and have been in this or similar role for the past 5 years. I love the fact that no workday is the same and feel privileged to work with some of the worlds largest and most progressive companies, the partners we represent make this possible. I am a family guy who loves nature and the outdoors (hence I live in the Glen of Imaal), I am a motor head and a sport fanatic both watching and playing. I have eclectic taste when it comes to music and will listen to anything from Reggae to Classical (I also have a secret liking to a bit of Neil Diamond but won’t admit it in public).
Project-Coordinator – I support the Sales team, along with the Design-Coordinators to specify, organise and quote product. For the past 3 years, I have been immersed in the world of furniture! I have experience in various sides to the business, which has helped me to progress up to my current role. Working in an action-packed office with like-minded people has made work so enjoyable, and there is never a day that I dread coming into work! I love the outdoors and keeping active, whether that’s walking my dogs, going to the gym or horse-riding. To relax, I love to bake too! I love to upcycle old and antique furniture. I always have my own little projects on the go!
As an Account manager, I am the point of contact for existing and potential clients. My main roles are to deal with and deliver clients requests, and establish and maintain strong customer relationships. I have been in the industry since 2006 and have been an account manager for the past 5 years. I love to solve problems and come up with solutions that will best suit customers’ unique requirements. I practice vinyasa yoga 5/6 times a week and also enjoy making music. I have a very broad taste in music but I particularly love metal. My all time favourite band is TOOL.
As an Interior Designer , I have a passion for workplace design and trends. My role involves specialising in office fitout design as well as design implementation, furnitre selection, materials selection, finishes selection etc. I have 12 years experience working as both a Graphic & Interior designer with 3 years experience working with SIG Workplace. I love getting to see a project develop from initial space planning to walking on site and building relationships with my clients to understand their vision. Within this role, I really appreciate the opportunities I get to new places and learn more from other companies. My passions include architecture, digital design and screen printing. I oy attending design talks/workshops and up skilling. Also enjoy running, hiking and all things out doors. Qualified as a personal trainer, with a lot of energy to burn!

Designer & Project Coordinator Designing office fit outs and refurbishments, design of office spaces and providing quotations and presentations to clients. Designer with a bachelor's degree in interior design and over 9 years of experience in the field. The biggest motivation is the particular challenge of each project, different proportions and proposals, providing the best solution to customer's needs and art desire. I like art, museums, architecture, fashion and design, it all gets even more perfect if I'm traveling and learning about different languages, foods, religions, music, people … cultures!
Project & Marketing Coordinator
As a Project & Marketing Coordinator, I am involved in all marketing strategies including website development & management, social media planning & implementation, event planning and more. I have over 7 years experience as a Marketing Manager but I am new to the office furniture industry and have been with SIG Workplace for just under a year. I love getting to learn more about the industry and how the design of a workplace can have such a huge impact on the success & productivity of a businee and their employees. I love to explore and keep active by reguarly going on hikes and discovering new places. I also love to travel and have spent several years living and travelling abroad.
As an Account Manager, I am responsible for the management of sales and relationships with Clients, managing client projects from initiation phase right through to project closure. Over the past 6 year I have had the pleasure to work on some of the largest projects nationwide. I have 13 years’ experience in the building industry as a Business Owner and Subcontractor- 6 of these years with SIG Workplace. I have a BA in Business management specialising in Project management. In my role, I love that No opportunity is the same, all clients have different needs and wants as a business which makes the process interesting, fun and also challenging. The opportunity to work with some of the world’s leading organisations is a great privilege. To see clients embracing new ways of working and implementing changes I helped develop really makes it all worthwhile. I am a big golf and Rugby fan and love to play at a competitive level. I have a young family and love spending time with them and looking for new adventures. Music is one of my passions and I love going to live concerts. I spent most of my younger years as a DJ in clubs and radio stations in both the UK and Ireland.
Danilo De Jesus
As an Internal Project Manager, I follow projects from the early pricing stages until handover to client. This includes doing a little bit of everything: pricing, design, client facing, logistics coordination, furniture fitting etc. My first contact with Office Furniture was back in Brazil where I worked in the industry for a little under a year. I then spent some time working in construction and once I moved to Ireland, got the chance to get back into Furniture. The challenge of understanding the customer’s requirements and find the right solutions for them is the best for me. I live for “my girls” (wife and daughter that is), but when it comes to my own interests, I’m into Radio Controlled stuff. Cars, planes, drones, you name it. I don’t have a favourite song, but I could name some albums that I really enjoy. As an example, I like to listen to “Nightfall in Middle Earth” (by Blin Guardian) when I need to focus at work.
As the Operations Manager , I manage the nuts and bolts of the business through our wonderful team of designers, estimations, logistics, accounts and subcontractors. I’ve been part of the Workplace family for over six years. My role requires that I have the ability to juggle multiple priorities at the same time and I love the challenges that this brings me on a daily basis. I love rugby and hiking but most importantly I love spending time with family. I spent a year in Australia playing rugby and I made the Queensland South representative side which gave me the opportunity to play in the SunCorp Stadium in Brisbane
Logistics & Project Coordinator
As a Logisitics Project Coordinator, with over 8 years of international logistics experience, I am focused at delivering furniture projects & supporting business operations mianly responsible for planning, scheduling and overseeing logistics operations at SIG Workplace. My day is constantly changing, always evolving and as a logistics coordinator I get front row seats closely watching delivery of new, exciting projects that make our customers happy. Every day is different and is an adventure. From book reading, hiking and travelling, I am up for anything that personally challenges me.
As an Account Manager, I have a dynamic role that spans over client account and project management, sales and design. I came to workplace furniture four years ago via office interior design. Trips to European factories to learn about the manufacturing process are brilliant. Colour is an obsession. Van Gogh is my favourite colourist. I love bobbing in the Irish sea!
