Schuller Kitchens Cadiff Team

Meet The Showroom Team

How it all began...

In July 2016, kitchen fanatics Danny Borge and Andy Brown joined forces to open Artisan’s first Schüller Kitchen Showroom in Cardiff.  Their objective was simple… to design and supply fantastic quality German Kitchens whilst providing unrivalled levels of customer service.

At Artisan, you don’t get passed from pillar to post like some large kitchen companies. Andy and Danny have a presence in the Showroom and are on hand if you have any technical questions about your kitchen and, if you phone the showroom, you’re able to speak with a team member that you know…and who knows you.

There’s no upper management hiding in head office in another part of the country, everything is dealt with by our small Artisan team. We strive to give you the personal service of a small family-run business combined with the quality, efficiency and reassurance of dealing with Germany’s second largest kitchen manufacturer.

Danny Borge
Danny Borge

Project Manager, Kitchen Designer and Co-Director

Danny’s had a long career in the trade and fitted kitchens for over 20 years. He trained as a carpenter and joiner but soon turned his attentions to kitchens, where his passion for quality finishes and his eye for detail were put to good use. Danny's extensive knowledge of kitchens help him create practical, stylish designs. He manages the deliveries and installations and is often out and about visiting site to keep things running smoothly. When he is in the showroom though, he cooks up a mean bacon, brie and cranberry baguette!

  • Likes: Gadgets, Crisps and Talking (lots!)
  • Dislikes: TV Soaps, Cauliflower and Cheap Tools.
  • Interesting Fact: Danny has fractured his skull three times...but, surprisingly, has no brain damage!

Accounts & Marketing

Sandra has worked within the company since the Cardiff Showroom opened in 2016. She keeps the company accounts (and the company directors) in order. She's in charge of the social media, direct mail and email marketing and also writes the blogs. Sandra works behind the scenes and is usually hidden away in the upstairs office. She does appear on the shop floor occasionally though (usually for one of Danny’s bacon baguettes) but if you blink, you’ll miss her!

  • Likes: Singing with Rock Choir, Chocolate and Musical Theatre.
  • Dislikes: Robbie Williams, Shellfish and Being Cold.
  • Interesting Fact: As a member of Rock Choir, Sandra recently recorded songs at Abbey Road Studios, London.

Sales & Customer Liaison

Leanne has been working part-time in the Cardiff Showroom since the beginning of 2017. She has a great knowledge of the Schüller Range and is always happy to help and advise you. She works in Customer Liaison, keeping customers informed about delivery and installation dates and assisting with any queries between order and delivery of their new kitchen. On Saturdays, she morphs herself into a children’s entertainer so that the 'grown-ups' can spend time deciding on their kitchen. She loves a bit of Jazz FM…but others in the Showroom don't share that view!

  • Likes: Interior Design, Tapas and Travel.
  • Dislikes: Offal, Ironing and Bad Manners.
  • Interesting Fact: Leanne has a fear of heights, but once jumped out of a plane for charity!

Marketing, Website Design and Co-Director

Andy's had a passion for kitchens for over 20 years and, in the past, he’s designed kitchens as well as installing them. His focus is now on the marketing side of the business and after reading a plethora of marketing books and attending several courses, he’s quite the expert. He’s Artisan’s IT support and has designed and built the company website, which he’s continually working on to keep it updated. Andy’s mostly found working at his desk in the office upstairs, trying to listen to Planet Rock but having to endure Radio 1 until Sandra goes home at 2.30pm!

  • Likes: Rock Music, Rugby and Download Festival.
  • Dislikes: Justin Bieber, Sprouts and any TV Show with ‘Celebrity’ in the title.
  • Interesting fact: Andy has an honorary doctorate from the University of Athens for research into Hypnotic Techniques.

  • Dislikes: Bad Designs, Mondays and Vanilla
  • Interesting fact: Becky is fluent in both English and German, and her love for colour means that she'll have a different hair colour every time you see her!
