Assistant Brand Manager
Hi, my names Thea Lacey, I live just 5 miles from Grafton international in the Historic town of Tamworth with my Husband Richard, two boys Bruce and Rex, not forgetting the new addition to our family, our little dog Mavis.
I work in the Brand department as an Assistant Brand Manager looking after 3 brands ORLY – A natural nail care brand, clean + easy a waxing brand and Ezflow a competition acrylic brand. My Manager never questions me painting my nails at my desk – as its part of my job!
There is never a dull moment working for the brand team, from organising exhibitions and events, ordering exciting new products and on trend colours, to attending LFW and most recently being asked to present ORLY on QVC – every day is different. My job has allowed me to travel and meet people from around the world, my favourite was visiting LA to see ORLY HQ, meeting Jeff Pink and all the other ORLY distributors.
This year I received my 10 years’ service, time at Graftons has flown and I have been lucky in that time to work with some great teams – I originally started here in 2006 as a Sales Team Co-ordinator after gaining a degree in Media and Communication, I really didn’t know where I wanted to go in my career. Graftons has given me the opportunity to realise that I love working with exciting brands and making the difference to their success in the UK.
