Meet the New Proprietor at Allegro Blinds St. Albans

The four branches of Allegro Blinds are run by a cohesive team of staff and proprietors, all of whom are dedicated to delivering the best possible customer service and the highest quality products. Heading up the St. Albans branch has been the role of Brian Newman, who has over 30 years’ experience in the blinds business. After bringing fantastic leadership, direction and expertise to the role, Brian Newman has now retired, handing over to our new proprietor, Trish Schneider.

The new proprietor at Allegro Blinds St. Albans

With over 15 years of providing key secretarial and admin support to Allegro St. Albans, Trish Schneider is now keen to use her extensive knowledge of the company to take on the proprietor role. Throughout her time with Allegro Blinds, Trish has also built strong working relationships with the other three branches in Harrow, Watford and Dunstable, which she is certain will be beneficial in her new role.

Trish began her working career in London as a PA at CEO level, a job that she performed for over a decade. For the last twenty years she has been a self-employed secretary, working for entrepreneurs, business startups, and established companies, including Allegro Blinds. She is experienced at offering both virtual secretarial support in addition to hands-on office admin.

Ready to tackle her new managerial role, Trish is hoping to carry on Brian’s good work, and has some fresh new ideas to bring to the St. Albans branch. Her goals for the upcoming years include;

  • Gaining necessary product and manufacturing experience.
  • Searching for a specialist surveyor to carry out the measuring and quoting of jobs
  • Building a working relationship between the surveyor and fitter to take care of ordering and fitting.
  • Networking and marketing for new business.

Trish is excited to begin her new role and to see what the future brings for Allegro Blinds and its customers.
