Meet the team of Doug Cleghorn Bathrooms Leeds
#Specialising in the luxury bathroom industry, at Doug Cleghorn Bathrooms Leeds, we have built a solid reputation for providing only the best in designer products alongside a customer focused, personal approach. Having carried out many superior bathroom refurbishments in the Leeds and Harrogate areas, here, we meet our remarkable team of Doug Cleghorn Bathrooms Leeds.
A fully qualified Plumber & Electrician, Doug, 35 from Leeds, heads up this fantastic team of five as the companies Director. After originally leaving school to become a plumbing apprentice, Doug soon found himself eager for a new challenge and he went on to work for Npower as a business analyst. It wasn’t long before Doug realised that nights away from the family weren’t much fun and so he happily returned to plumbing, joining the family business, Doug Cleghorn Bathrooms.
Happily married to Zoe, Doug’s dream was to open his own bathroom showroom and in 2013, he did with great success. Driven, focused and with a great attention to detail, Doug says the showroom is his biggest achievement to date but it wouldn’t have been possible without the support of his dedicated team and supportive wife.
An early riser, it’s a 5.30am start, strong coffee and a dog walk for Doug with sometimes a gym session before starting the working day. From there it’s a busy agenda looking after the day to day running of the business. Outside of work, however, Doug loves nothing more than being outside. Passionate about adventure, in August, Doug will be completing a 3 day, 200-mile mountain bike challenge which will take him from coast to coast. On a weekend, you can usually find Doug in the busy bathroom showroom or in the garden, enjoying a pint and spending some quality time with Zoe. A lover of all things positive, Doug’s personal motto for life quite aptly is, ‘Never give up.’
28-year-old Zoe from Leeds is Doug’s partner in crime and the companies fabulous Co-Director. With an experienced background in finance, Zoe joined the team in 2018 to assist in the further growth of the company and since her arrival, has left a trail of glitter in her wake. On a typical day, you can find Zoe enjoying a strong black coffee before heading to the office to liaise with our wonderful customers and oversee the many ongoing bathroom projects. Along with a successful and growing business, together Zoe and Doug also share Coco Chanel who is the sweetest Bichon Frise you will ever meet.
When it comes to her hobbies and passions in life, Zoe loves going to the gym and walking her beloved pup. Her guilty pleasures are also chocolate, hair and nails and actor Jason Statham (sorry Doug). Often complimented for her great customer service skills, on a weekend you can usually find Zoe at work in the showroom and when it comes to after work drinks it’s champagne all the way for Zoe. A couple of things not everybody knows about her, Zoe says she is freakishly good at beer pong and that she once trained and ran for the London Marathon in 2016. Zoe also admits the probability of her ever even doing this was about the same as Leicester winning the Premiership.
Angela, 46 and originally from York, is our talented bathroom designer. Having worked in the industry since she was the tender age of 16, what Angela doesn’t know about good bathroom design isn’t worth knowing at all. Naturally creative, Angela says a typical day in the office for her is very busy and she often finds customers compliment her on her professionalism, friendliness and the quality of her designs. If anything, one pet hate of Angela’s is poor workmanship.
When she isn’t designing bathrooms, in her spare time Angela loves to work her horse and spend quality time with her two teenage girls whom she says are her biggest achievement. Angela’s personal motto is ‘Live life to the full’ and quite deservingly, her only guilty pleasure is a nice glass of wine.
A 32-year-old father of two, Andrew is the companies dynamic Warehouse Manager. Originally from Leeds, Andrew is responsible for carrying out stock checks, preparing orders for dispatch and arranging the delivery of new bathrooms to our customers.
Married with two beautiful daughters, Andrew loves being a dad, his family, spending time working in the garden and Coca-Cola. A fan of anything retro, Andrew also admits his biggest passion is fixing old bikes and he has a great collection of Rally Choppers next to his large Koi ponds in the back garden. With over 16 years of experience working in the construction industry, Andrew says his secret to success is hard work and dedication.
Shauna, 21 and from Leeds, is our brilliant Operations Administrator. Persistent, friendly and creative, Shauna has been with Doug Cleghorn Bathrooms since leaving college where she studied Art & Design. With a flair for great customer service, a great deal of Shauna’s day is spent assisting customers and when time allows, Shauna also enjoys being an extra pair of hands in the design department.
On a weekend, Shauna loves to indulge in a spot of cooking or baking and she tries to spend time with her friends whenever she can. As far as accomplishments go, Shauna also says that being a part of the growth of Doug Cleghorn Bathrooms Leeds has been huge for her, going from just three employees in a small office to the now beautifully furnished showroom. Shauna has loved playing a part in our company’s journey and her personal motto? Simply be yourself.
