Jodie Bocking

Jodie Bocking - Staircase Designer

Realising the customer’s dreams by providing them with the very best staircase design while working within any site constraints is Jodie’s aim.  She places great emphasis on ensuring customers are completely happy and that each design works as well as it possibly can for the particular location.

Jodie started out as a staircase designer with Pear Stairs when she was just 18. She moved into other roles, with this and other companies, before moving back to design with Pear Stairs.  While designing is her preferred job, she feels she has a more complete business awareness due to having worked in other roles.

Helping others: Jodie is committed to helping others stay fit – she is a fitness instructor in her spare time, and also a keen runner, having competed in 10k runs, half marathons and last year’s Chester marathon. Beneficiaries have included Severn Hospice. She will run next year’s Manchester marathon, with money raised going to the Lingen Davies Cancer Fund at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.

Loves: Fitness and running, naturally!

Julian Marsh – Technical Sales

Accurate measurements are vitally important. Without them, the staircase, or some important part of it, will not fit to perfection.

Enter Julian Marsh, whose former job as a self-employed carpenter means he knows all about taking precise measurements and making absolutely certain that the proposed staircase will fit the location.  Julian goes out on site, visiting customers at their homes or businesses, advising them on the best type of design for their particular site situations. While double-checking measurements is an essential part of the job, Julian feels that meeting people as one of the public faces of Pear Stairs, discussing all the options with customers, is equally important and rewarding.

He loves to see a job well done and is proud to think that he played a vital part in it.
