Staff Spotlight on...Gemma

Posted by Gemma Paton 11th Dec 2019

 We love our staff at Wholesale Domestic Bathrooms, and love the idea of you getting to know them.

This week, we’d like you to meet Gemma, our Marketing Executive. 

Hello Gemma, tell us a bit about yourself?

I joined the company in May this year (2019), brought in as a Marketing Executive to support the growing needs of the Marketing team. I studied Fashion Branding at University, a bit far from the Bathroom game I’m in now, and graduated in 2014. Before commencing full time employment, I spent a year living my best life travelling across Australia & Asia. Since arriving home in 2015, I’ve worked in both the Marketing function of the Hair & Beauty, and Interiors industries.

What’s your role at Wholesale Domestic Bathrooms?

As a Marketing Executive, my role is incredibly varied. Most people assume Marketing must mean “Facebook”, but there is so much more to it. I trend forecast, develop briefs & implement campaigns, taking a simple idea right through to fruition, working closely with our internal graphics and CGI team. Everything you see in our showroom, on the website, across social media, on TV, within emails, as well as hear on the radio comes from the Marketing team.

What’s your favourite part of your job?

My favourite part is creating design briefs. I trend forecast what is up and coming within Home interiors in terms of colour, pattern or style. And then work closely with our CGI team to bring that look to life in a Bathroom set, remaining on trend as well as incorporating Wholesale Domestic Bathrooms products.


What’s your favourite Wholesale Domestic Bathrooms product?

I really like the wall hung basin vanity units; I think they are super sleek and trendy. They work really well in both large scale or small bathrooms, giving the illusion of more space. I particularly love the City Molina Ash Wall Hung Vanity, something I’ve been considering for my own bathroom!

What do you like most about working for Wholesale Domestic Bathrooms?

As it’s a family run business which has been going for over 56 years, the team are incredibly close knit, so everyone works together to get the job done. I also enjoy tuning in to the STV sports news at 6pm and seeing our sponsorship adverts being shown – “STV Sports News Sponsored by Wholesale Domestic Bathrooms.”

Have you got any Fun Facts about yourself?

Yes, I’m a member of an amateur dramatics group, we perform Musicals/Pantomimes every Christmas time, this year it’s Aladdin!

Thanks Gemma!
