We caught up with Rob, during his hourly coffee break to ask him a few questions about his position here at Paper Comet.
What exactly is your job role here at Paper Comet?
" I'm the MD (Managing Director) and owner of the business, that means head honcho! It's sounds cool to be 'the boss' but actually it means I have to oversee all the decisions made her within the company. I lead from the front and like to get involved in every aspect and department."
How did the idea for Paper Comet come about?
" I had been researching options for a direct-to-consumer e-commerce business, and just happened to find the online greetings card industry (especially in the UK) was controlled by just a few big players. This lead me to believe there was a gap in the market for a new comer - especially since the big guys had all 'sold out' to major worldwide firms. And so that was it; I loved the concept and the challenge ahead so just went for it."
