nice things people have said about me!
Elisabeth has been an amazing source of knowledge over the years, and has always provided us with practical business advice when we needed it. Her knowledge of the industry and understanding of what it takes to be a food producer is what sets her apart. As well as helping to grow and develop sales and develop our brand through marketing, Elisabeth project managed a complete re-design of our logo, marketing materials and website. What was key in the process was Elisabeth's ability to completely understand our brand and translate that in to use.Eamonn Lonergan, Knockanore Farmhouse Cheese
Elisabeth worked with Sheridans Cheese Mongers for nearly 10 years in a wide range of duties and with diverse responsibilities, including; retail management, wholesale management, brand development, product development, purchasing oversight and product sourcing, event management, marketing, sales and customer service, staff recruitment and management, forecasting and budget. She was entirely responsible for the development of the Sheridan’s wholesale and export business, working alongside ourselves; the directors on strategies, and was key in developing all aspects of what has since become a successful enterprise. Elisabeth always displayed great passion and dedication for her work. She is versatile, creative and extremely hard working. During her time with us Elisabeth was key in the development of the overall business and brand.Kevin Sheridan, Director Sheridans Cheesemongers
