Cat, Founder & Managing Director.
I’m the Inventor and Founder of doddl. I’m often thinking about possible new inventions that might make life a little bit easier. I was working in waste management before I started doddl and I have been on a steep learning curve for all things business related ever since! After many years of hard work and sacrifices, I can now see our company really starting to take shape. I typically focus on New Product Development, manufacturing, business strategy and financial planning. I’m a mum of three energetic children, including twins and I also have an energetic husband, a dog, and a horse – so along with the business, life is certainly never dull. I set out to create a new design of cutlery that would help make kids mealtimes easier and more enjoyable; so the highlight of my job is receiving letters and emails from customers, sharing their stories of how doddl has literally been life changing. Those brutal early years, to get doddl off the ground were certainly worthwhile!
Laura, Brand Marketing Director.
I’m Brand Marketing Director for doddl and I’m lucky enough to say I love my job. I spent over 18 years working in creative agencies and within the banking industry as a brand and marketing specialist. Then having sparked up a friendship with Cat in the school playground (thanks to our daughters), it didn’t take me long to invest in doddl. As Brand Marketing Director I’m responsible for developing and activating our marketing strategy to deliver an exceptional brand experience, as well as reaching new customers all over the world with our message and products. Thanks to the quality of doddl and the feedback from our amazing customers, the last few years have been incredible. We’ve had all sorts of adventures and have plenty more planned. Like most parents, my two children Oliver and Rosa keep me on my toes, but working with a team of likeminded souls (and the occasional gin..) helps keep me sane!
Tim, Head of Sales.
My role at doddl is all about making our range accessible to parents so doddl can play its part in their little ones journey towards independent eating – wherever they are in the world! I feel genuinely privileged to have the opportunity to introduce a product that really makes a difference to family mealtimes. I’m also a very proud dad to my son Max, whose love of football has driven me to become football coach for his local team. If you want to learn more about working with doddl please visit our Collaborate page and I will look forward to speaking to you!
Amanda, Customer Service Manager.
If you have bought some of our fantastic doddl cutlery I’m here to help! I’ve been dealing with our wonderful customers, both business and consumer since March 2020, making sure orders are received, processed and delivered and sorting out any problems. After several years managing Customer Support teams for new technologies and then a few years ‘managing’ my family; one son, Oliver, one husband and one dog, it is lovely to be back helping customers to make sure their doddl experience is the best it can be.
Cathy, Social Media Manager.
I’m the Social Media Manager for doddl. Day-to-day I manage all doddl social media channels, creating and engaging with content, letting people know how brilliant doddl is! I love my job – not only do I get to be creative on a day-to-day basis, and work with the fabulous doddl team, but I really enjoy being in touch with all our wonderful online community of parents and followers. I have two fabulous children Rosie and Ben and two dogs that keep me busy outside of work, we’re lucky to live in the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside so I try and make the most of that every day (whatever the weather!)
