From David Mackie, Principal
During 2017 I was delighted to add four new members to the Interion team. I look for people with diverese skills and experience, energy and enthusiasm, who identify with and support our business values.
I'm delighted to introduce them to you...
I enjoy the diversity my role brings and being part of the friendly, hardworking team at Interion. Being able to see a project transform from a handful of sketches and ideas to a completed project is always very rewarding.
With a BSc degree in Product Design and experience in the manufacture and installation of bespoke furniture, I have a keen eye for detail, ensuring that projects can be delivered to high expectations. In my spare time, I enjoy travelling different parts of the world, rock climbing and I am a qualified scuba diver.
I've always had a passion for design, so I feel lucky to be working in an environment surrounded by the things I enjoy. I've worked for manufacturers, a furniture consultancy, and acted as UK agent – now I’m really enjoying working with a team of like-minded people and utilising my experience for the benefit of our clients.
This industry is always evolving so there’s always something new to learn; part of my job is to keep my professional network informed and updated.
What I like best about working with Interion team is that my primary responsivities involve interacting with all the team - I get to learn new things every day. As a qualified Designer with prior industry experience in Turkey and the UK, I’m involved in both creative and organizational tasks - I love having that duality.
I have a boss who trusts me; he actually values my experience and welcomes my opinion. The Interion team are great people are truly team players; it’s rewarding to work in an environment where people care about honesty, hard work, integrity – and each other.
To earn the right to work in this industry, I initially had to work unpaid. I worked with a furniture consultancy for some time until I was offered a role with one of our installation companies. I later progressed to working as a sales representative with the UK’s largest furniture manufacturer, based from their London HQ operating in various markets.
At Interion I feel that I’ve got to where I want to be. I enjoy the diversity my role brings, allowing me to have more control and oversight of the projects I work on. Finding the right solutions with the client, to project managing and seeing it all come together. There’s nothing my rewarding than giving the clients exactly what they desired and helping to make it happen.
In addition to this, there is a real sense of togetherness at Interion; we all look out for each other and work as a team. We share the same values and I’m proud to be a member of this great and growing team!
