Meet the Morphys: Dan Reeves
Hi, I’m Dan and am the Category Consumer Manager working as part of what we call the ‘Breakfast Occasions’ team which looks after all things kettles, toasters, coffee and tea machines.
I’ve been here 18 months which feels like two minutes, but in part that’s down to the people I work with at Morphy who genuinely make it a great place to work.
My job is to take a lead role within the category team in delivering products based around consumer insight and trends, undertake research and develop marketing plans to support their launch. The most rewarding part of the role is seeing the products on shelves and the positive feedback we get which makes it worthwhile.
I’m passionate about what I do and always looking for new and different things that could work for Morphy which generally means I don’t switch off when away from work.
Outside of Morphy I like to keep myself busy with activities, learning new things or going to new places. Travel is a big part of my life and when I had more time to do so, I went travelling but now it’s limited to my holidays. There’s something about experiencing different cultures and environments that can’t be beaten – and it actually helps me with my work too (I really don’t switch off!)
After going to Uni at Leeds, I stayed up there and enjoy the trappings of city life but also love to get out into the great outdoors where possible to go walking but also keep fit with a fair bit of running thrown in with some squash and swimming.
