Getting to know..... Nancy Li
What do you do at Cottam?
I am the General Manager at Cottam China office, responsible for purchasing and shipping the goods from China to UK. Managing the suppliers in China and making sure the goods are delivered in a good quality status is a challenging job, but I love and enjoy it.
What are you most proud of?
I am proud of “Supply Chain Management” being established as the third branch in our business. Working together with the team, we have now implemented a good procedure for the RFQ Process, Sampling, Order Production and Logistics Management. I am also very pleased that our Cottam China office is running very well and we expect more excellent staff to join in us in the near future.
Who or what inspires you?
I’m inspired by different people and different things. Some people who always have dreams and never give up in their life; some people who are doing the same things every day, but are peaceful and happy; also something just as simple as the kids’ smile.
What do you do when you’re not working?
I spend most of the time with my family, playing with the boys. But I still have some time with my friends outside, chatting, enjoying a coffee. I also love to be a photographer.
What is your favourite Cottam product and why?
I love most of our products, and they make me feel very interested. I never knew that there were so many brushes in the world before joining Cottam, and I like to know how to use them and test them. I also like our other products apart from the brushes, such as Jewellery boxes, they are so nice.
