Being the co-founder and having a passion for lingerie, it seemed the obvious route to take. Having built the business up I have loved every minute of it and met some amazing people.
Part of the Charlesworth dynasty, my main role includes communication and sales of all our brands and bringing them to life in the UK market. I work closely with our Brand managers to make sure we gain the best representation with all our customers.
Sophie Charlesworth – Brand Manager
An opportunity arose for us to work as agents for the swimwear brand Maryan Mehlhorn and I was given the role of brand manager, which I still do to this day. Alongside Maryan I look after Hanro and new brand Commando, which are one of our fastest growing brands.
Being the joint founder of Intimates Lingerie, we realised there was a gap in the market and went about setting up Intimates Lingerie to distribute premium brands of apparel.
My role has evolved over the years and my main duties now are HR Manager and credit control. In my spare time I enjoy keeping fit at the gym and have just taken up running (eek).
Charlotte Doucy – Brand Manager
I started working for Intimates in 2012 and have been a Brand Manager since. I now look after Lauren by Ralph Lauren and HANRO.
Enjoying the new challenge of being the warehouse manager, and looking forward to growing with the business.
In 2016 I re-joined the Intimates family to help in Charlotte’s absence manage our distribution brands which consist of DKNY sleepwear, Lauren by Ralph Lauren Sleepwear, Ginia Silk, and our premium, solution driven lingerie brand Le Mystere. My role is to look after the brands and the customers who stock them.
I am in my 4th year at intimates Lingerie, having a number of roles here including catering manager, emptying bins and most importantly I am head of security. My favourite things about working here are hanging out and the amount of Bonio’s I get. Every Wednesday I take the girls in the office for a run in the forest. I love watching films, my favourite film being “May The Paws be with you”. Fur-well.
Beth Langdon – Customer Services
i have been working at Intimates for 2 years. I work on the HANRO website looking after Customer Services.
Being the newest member of the team, I work in the warehouse alongside the rest of the dream team.
Jill Wilson – Finance Manager
With more than 25 years financial experience across a range of industries including construction, education electronics and timber, I now enjoy working in the more exciting world of fashion. I’m responsible for maintaining the company’s accounts records, VAT returns and supplier payments. Also assisting on financial operations including cash flow and forecasts.
Now in my fifth year here and still sane. Working for the Intimates Team as general warehouse, handyman and driver.
Suzy Bush – Web Manager
My role here includes making sure the Hanro website is running to its full potential, sending out email campaigns, and adding products to the site, the rest I do for love!
Retail Staff based in London
I manage the retail side of the business and liaise with the London stores and key accounts.
Janice McBride – Harrods Concession Manager
I’ve been working for Hanro since 1999 and before this have worked in various departments, which all in all has spanned 30 years. I love meeting people and during my time here have seen quite a few celebrities and even royalty. I have many tales to tell and there is never a dull moment, but can’t as I’ve sworn by Harrods discretion.
Jan Crawley – Hanro Boutique Manager
Being the shop manager I am responsible for seasonal buying, stock organisation, and quite a bit more. My main prerogative is to keep my team happy, and then in turn they will keep the customers happy!
Regina Kapinga – Mobile Consultant
I am a mobile consultant who works between both Harrods, Boutique and other concessions in and around London.
