After 13 years with Really Good/Soul, its sales manager Lisa Marcuccio is leaving the company to join Wrendale Designs as it gears up for further growth.

Commenting on her career move, popular industry exec Lisa told PG Buzz she is leaving the Oxfordshire-based Really Good and Soul after so many happy years to take up the “fantastic opportunity” and embrace the challenge of joining Wrendale Designs, that is based in North Lincolnshire, as its first ever head of sales. Lisa, who joins Wrendale in the new year will work alongside the company’s co-owners Hannah and Jack Dale drawing on her 18 years’ industry experience and knowledge “to help build on Wrendale’s continued success”. Prior to joining Really Good/Soul, Lisa was part of the Stewo UK salesteam.

I will always hold fond memories of my time here.” She told PG Buzz that she would always be eternally grateful of the support and friendship from the company’s founder/owner and general manager David Hicks and Lisa Shoesmith, but that the move made sense for her personally.
