Meet the Morphys: Annaliese Curtis
Here at ‘Home of the House Proud’, we like to introduce to you some of the people that work so hard to make sure that the products we bring to market are top quality and really do make your everyday household tasks easier. Today, we’re going to introduce Annaliese.
Hi, I am Annaliese and recently joined the Morphy Richards Marketing Team as a Category Consumer Manager looking after the Garment Care Category. What that means in non-marketing speak is I work on our iron and steam generator product range, making sure that we understand consumers’ needs through research and market trends and develop products that deliver against those needs and then tell people about them!
Morphy Richards is a household name and has been around for 75 years, so there is a lot of heritage and knowledge here. There is a lot of science behind our products too and they are all extensively put through their paces at our on-site testing facility, so the journey of bringing a new iron to market is very thorough and impressive. After 6 months here I have got a good knowledge of how our products are built and what makes them unique. It is a great place to work and you can see why our customers have loved us since the 1930s!
When I am not engrossed in the world of ironing, out of work I am a full time Mummy to my adorable 2 year old daughter and regularly find myself covered in paint or cake mixture as I help her create her next masterpiece! Aside from being a Mummy I love to travel and use my languages where I can. I speak fluent French and near fluent German, but there is not much call for that around the office! My favourite places I have visited are Malaysia, Switzerland and Borneo and next on the wish-list are Russia and New Zealand, although I might need to wait a while! I also enjoy going to gigs and pretty much once a month find myself at the local arena bopping along to some band or other!
