Sean joined Openwide Coastal in May 2015 as Financial & Administration Manager. Sean previously worked for Big K Charcoal Ltd as their Office Manager. Born in Norwich, Sean has many years of operational and accounts experience under his belt. Because of Sean’s love of the seaside, joining the team was an easy decision. Sean is the calming influence in the team and keeps everyone in check, winning the award for being “the most likely person to go to in a crisis” He is a lifelong Liverpool Football supporter but the least said about that the better!
Debs is a Norfolk girl but has lived and worked in Cardiff during her working career, moving back home to Norfolk and joining the Cromer Pier team in 2011. She has mainly worked in Health & Leisure Clubs prior to joining Cromer Pier, dealing with membership and sales. Helping to make memorable customer experiences and having a passion for Cromer, The Pier and The Theatre is what drives Debs in her role. She loves long beach walks with her Lab boy Bob and is also a keen Norwich City Football Club fan, so watch out Sean that rivalry is real.
Katherine joined the Cromer Pier team in 2005 as Shop Supervisor, where she worked in the then newly built Footprints Gift Shop. Katherine trained as Front of House for the very first Christmas Show on Cromer Pier. She loves it so much she is still Duty Managing the shows 11 years later, as well as being involved in the running of the day to day operational areas. Katherine is a fountain of all knowledge regarding the history of the running of the pier, in terms of tried and tested ideas, so she’s a good person to have around and support the rest of the team. Katherine now works Part-Time as she has three very lively little boys to look after at home.
Phil started working at the Pavilion Theatre in 2005, whilst studying Technical Theatre at the College of West Anglia. He has a wealth of technical knowledge but is primarily a Stage Manager. Phil has worked on Phantom of the Opera in London, as Number 3 Sound and has designed lighting and scenery for various tours and shows. His experience including working on installations, conferences and festivals, both in this country and abroad. Phil is known in the local area for providing technical advice, equipment and props to local events and shows including the church and Cromer Academy. Phil is a daddy to 4 lively little boys so his love for getting dirty, driving off-road in Landrovers has now been overtaken by family time. We suspect it will only be a matter of time before the boys are shadowing his Daddy in the theatre.
