Departures and arrivals in the dbda office

dbda is waving a bittersweet farewell this month, as retirement and new horizons beckon some of our colleagues and friends.

Sarkis Dadourian, our Financial Controller who has been with us since the company started in 1982 will be taking retirement. Sarkis has been a stalwart over the years playing an important part in the changing scenes at dbda. From Dawn Boyfield’s MBE (Founder and Chair of dbda) inception of the company and its progression to an award-winning CSR consultancy, Sarkis has supported her and many of the staff with a strength that will be very much missed! Kalpa Shah has joined on a part time basis to take on Sarkis’ work and we look forward to developing our relationship with her.

Mr Shah, our trusted warehouse operator, is also retiring this month. Mr Shah has been with us for 10 years and has been an integral part of the management and operation of our warehouse, overseeing the collation and dispatch of many of our award-winning resources. Mr Shah, a devoted grandfather, is looking forward to spending more time with his family. We thank him for his service and friendship and his wife’s fantastic cooking!

Naomi Jones, Senior Account Executive working on our Nationwide Education account and star organizer of many of our green office initiatives is leaving us to pursue her legal career at De La Rue Plc. As many of her colleagues know, Naomi has been an asset to dbda and we will miss her friendship. In this instance we’ll forgive her for her unrelenting support of Arsenal! We wish her good luck. In her place is Erin Seymour, formerly a Communications Officer at the Institute of Psychiatry at King’s College London. She will be supporting the Nationwide Education team and is looking forward to her move into the world of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

Rebecca Smith also joins us and will be working on our RoSPA products, The Children’s Traffic Club and dbda products. Rebecca has a Masters in Architecture and Environmental Engineering and, before joining us, worked as a researcher at a Corporate Sustainability consultancy.

dbda is at a turning point with many changes for us to get used to but we wish all those leaving us fantastic futures and look forward to making our new staff feel welcome and valued at dbda.
