Meet the Team
The small team at George Weil are conscientious and multi-faceted – we’re here to help and if one of us doesn’t have the answer, another will!
Sales & Warehouse Manager – Jo
Jo runs the sales department and looks after all the picking, packing and dispatch of your orders, and managing the staff to ensure you are given the best service possible. She also takes responsibility for processing the payment of all monies onto the system. Jo enjoys much of her spare time walking her two boxers.
Sales Assistant / Administrator – Sarah
Sarah assists Jo with the sales administration. She is responsible for answering the telephone, processing and picking orders, and serving customers in the shop. Sarah has a background in accounting (an invaluable resource for George Weil!) and has a keen interest in hand spinning, knitting and crochet.
Warehouse Operator – Cara
Cara works in the warehouse, pre-packaging dyes, fibres and more, and checks in deliveries from all over the world. You may meet her in the showroom where she keeps displays topped up and serves customers. In another guise, Cara is a busy Nanny and leaves us at 3pm to pick up her charges.
Packer – Alice
Alice gets the days orders packed and ready to leave in time for the postman or courier to pick them up for next day delivery, she can also be found in the warehouse working with Cara. Alice previously worked as a supervisor in a well known food store and likes to spend her free time sewing, painting and creating.
Managing Director – Ian
Ian is the owner of George Weil and tries to keep out of the day-to-day side of running the business, this leaves him responsible for keeping the computer system up and running, and for answering the more complex or technical questions from customers. Ian is a discerning car enthusiast and has a particular interest in early MGs.
Administrator – Sophie
We’re delighted to have Ian’s granddaughter Sophie working with us. Sophie can turn her hand to most of the processes here at George Weil; she currently does the purchasing for all our lovely art and craft materials and often assists with the sales team. Sophie is a busy Mum of 2 and works between home and the office.
Bookkeeper – David
David is responsible for keeping the accounts, paying the bills and chasing up the more dilatory of our customers. David usually works with us in the office on Mondays. In his spare time David enjoys walking and weekends away, and during exam time he provides his services as an invigilator at Guildford College.
Graphics & Marketing Manager – Allison
Allison is responsible for the way we present ourselves to customers, through our advertising, social media, newsletters and web site. She is responsible for graphics, copy, and the design and management of the web site. Allison works most of her time from home and is in regular touch with the team.
