MEET THE MAKERS: LESZEK
5 YEARS AT GORAL & SON
Joining us in 2016 as a lasting room operative, Leszek quickly showed a deep understanding of the factory, the processes and the work that goes into keeping everything running smoothly. In 2017 he was promoted to the role of Production Manager after showing an understanding of the way the factory runs and developing a solid rapport with the other members of the team.
His current role means he's responsible for planning out orders and making sure we can meet deadlines, managing the workload so it's spread evenly between the different team members and communicating any issues with the management team.
Outside of his duties as Production Manager Leszek also works as part of our lasting room team, responsible for taking the unshaped leather uppers and preparing them to be soled. When asked he said he enjoys the variety offered up by his role and that a lot of his job consists of problem solving which provides a satisfying challenge.
