Having been with the company since its inception, Clare has been an invaluable part of the group and been instrumental in bringing Principle to its position in market today.
Clare’s irreplaceable knowledge and experience in championing quality and her involvement in Technical Management has been a tremendous resource for the company.
In her own words:
What are you looking forward to the most in your new role?
I am looking forward to the opportunity to further develop knowledge and experience across broader areas while. It’s a great opportunity to influence change and innovate processes and products across the group.
How long have you been with Principle and what did you start out doing?
Been with Principle 16 years here since day 1 (actually more than that really as I was involved in the start-up, business planning, hunt for premises, recruitment of start up team, development of initial product ranges etc) and role has evolved with development of Group over that time.
What do you enjoy most about the company?
The development of the Group over the last 16 years has provided me the opportunity to learn and develop skills and knowledge in wide spectrum of areas and every single day provides multiple opportunities to learn something new!
Working with an absolutely great team of committed and talented people is the most rewarding part – especially for team members from all areas of the business grow, develop and progress within the company. It has been remarkable to reflect on how the company has grown over the 16 years and proud to have been a part of that.
What do you enjoy most about the industry?
I love the VMS industry biased due to spending majority of career in it! The industry is quite unique falling somewhere between Food & Pharmaceutical, whilst we are governed by Food Law the proximity to Pharmaceutical category allows us to take the best elements of both industries, emerging trends from food and latest Pharma and Scientific developments to develop new, effective products.
How does it feel to work for a family business?
Decisions are taken quickly, fast paced, ability to influence change and support the development of others. Mainly the opportunity that working for SME/family business provides, everyone has opportunity to raise ideas, feedback direct to CEO and has opportunity to be recognised for their contribution.
