We’re delighted to introduce you to the newest member of the BDH Tullford team, Accounts Manager Sam Chisnall, who joined the business in August 2020. 

Working four days a week, she is responsible for the financial aspects of the business now that our long-standing Accounts Manager, Pamela Powell, has retired. 

“I’ve worked in finance for most of my career, so I’m looking forward to the new challenges that this role will bring,” says Sam. “The whole team, especially Pamela and Becks on Reception, have been generous with their knowledge and have helped me to settle in quickly.”

Sam has held finance positions with a variety of organisations in Norfolk, most notably Hughes Electrical, where she worked alongside her husband, Trade Director Paul Chisnall, for a number of years. 

Family business

While Sam may be a new starter, she’s certainly not a new face at Europa Way. In fact, her father was one of the original founders of the company back in the 1960s. Chester Fox and his brothers started BD Studios, which joined forces with current Director David Hutchins which, over time, evolved into BDH Tullford. 

“My cousin [BDH Tullford Director James Fox] approached me when Pamela announced her decision to retire and asked if I would be interested in joining the business,” she continues. “I wasn’t looking to leave my previous employer, but James offered me an opportunity to support a business close to my heart.

“I hadn’t considered joining the business when I left school. There wasn’t a position for me at that time either, because Pamela was managing the accounts. But this feels like the right time; I feel like I’ve come home. There are pictures of my dad on the wall beside me, which is lovely. I’m really comfortable here.”

Adds Director David Hutchins: “We’re thrilled to have Sam on board with us. Her skills and experience, along with her passion for BDH Tullford, are real assets to the business and we look forward to many happy years working together.”
