As a part of Steel-Line Garage Doors’ 40 years anniversary celebration, we are sharing stories about our staff members and their contributions to the company.
Let’s get to know one of our team members…
Name: Christine Hance
Title: Credit Manager
Location: Head Office
Tell me a bit about your background and what made you join Steel-Line?
The job advertised at the time sounded like a ‘meaty role’ and I’m always up for a challenge. The role has evolved into something very different now but it’s still ‘meaty’. Every day is a challenge.
How long have you been with Steel-Line?
I started here in Feb 2009, so I’ve just had my 10-year anniversary.
What is the best thing that happened to you whilst working here?
Over the years I have become part of the best team I’ve worked with in the whole of my working life.
What motivates you to be successful your role?
For me, there’s nothing better than seeing an Aged Trial Balance with nothing outstanding past 30 days. I have to treat the money outstanding like it was my own and inspire my Team to do the same. We’re a tough bunch of Old Broads where money is concerned!
What would be your advice to anyone starting with the company?
Be good to Steel-Line, Steel-Line will be good to you
What motivates day to day?
The knowledge that our work collecting money is never done.
As we know, you have a great passion about charity work. What do you make for charity?
I sew hessian shopping bags, Christmas decorations and wall hangings, cross stitches, and table runners etc.
What is your charity of choice?
White Ribbon – I find it hard to believe that families sleep in cars to escape domestic violence. We need to look after these people
How do you donate?
I sell or auction the things I make and then I donate the proceeds in full to White Ribbon.
What do you do for fun / what are you passionate about?
I like to listen to music, I love movies, sewing, gardening and I like to cook.
What is something no one at work would know about you?
That I’m really only 36.
Best advice anyone has given you?
In the words of Tim McGraw – Always be Humble & Kind.
Last book you read?
The Husbands Secret by Lianne Moriarty.
