Company Contacts

Michelle Griffin

Managing Director

Daughter and Managing Director since 2004 – Michelle is a mother of three and holds the reins of the Company, along with the support of her tremendous team.

John Reason


Grandfather and original founder of the Company – working in this industry all over the UK since the 1950s – John is an encyclopedia of knowledge! Finally retired at the age of 91 and sadly laid to rest in 2021 at the grand old age of 95.  Michelle and the team continue to drive the company in memory of him.

Chris Reason

Retired Partner

Father and Co-Founder of the Company in 1979 – Chris is now pretty much retired and enjoying the sunshine (rather than shading it) after all these years. His Mambo Shirt collection is awesome.

John Hines

Sales and Contracts Manager

A valuable member of both the company team, and the family, John has been visiting our customers since the mid 1990s and has therefore met 99% of the UK population. Never a dull moment with Jines.

David Pring

Office & Operations Manager

Dave has been an integral part of the family business since 2001, there’s not much he doesn’t know about Blinds, but he also enjoys a spot of fishing and can make a wicked roast dinner.

Tara Fletcher

Accounts and Finance

Tara has been working for us for over a decade, and is the strictest accounts lady you will ever meet. All bills must be paid on time where Tara’s concerned. But with that aside, they say nice things come in small packages, and in this case we can certainly agree.

Emma Venn

Office PA

Holding the fort and efficiently supporting the senior members of the Company, we would all be lost without Emma. She’s partial to a glass of wine and has the world’s largest collection of shoes at home, but this has nothing to do with her excellence for customer service. Everyone needs an Emma!

Factory and Installation Teams

There are too many of us to be mentioned on this page, but those of you who use our Company regularly will recognise our names and faces.
