Next up on our Chupi Team What I Do series is our amazing production manager Anna!

What is your role?

I am the Production Manager at Chupi. Every piece we make is designed, manufactured and produced in Ireland.  As Production Manager I coordinate and oversee this complex production process. It involves a lot of meticulous planning, scheduling and forecasting.  It’s a very a busy, challenging but fun role! No two days are ever the same working in production.

How did you get here?

I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree and a Diploma in Business Studies.  I wasn’t sure what direction I wanted to go in my career so I focused on building strong administrative and organisational skills.  From there I discovered a love for start up companies and quickly became addicted to the buzz and fast paced environment of start ups.  I love design and craved working for a creative company so moving to Chupi was a natural fit for me and I’ve never looked back since!

Best bits?

1. Working with diamonds!  Being surrounded by sparkly things every day is the dream.

2. Hearing the magical love stories from our amazing customers.

3. The team.  I am inspired and motivated by the hardest working team in the business!

People or businesses or brands you admire?

Over the past few years, I have fallen out of love with fast fashion.  I now seek out clothing that is ethically made to build on my capsule wardrobe that will last many years. Atrium store in Powerscourt Town Centre has become my go to for shopping.  They have the most amazing collection of clothing and jewellery and I love that they are championing a change in the way we think about our clothing.
