Doug shares Bernard's love for detail, balancing it (sort of!) with an unhealthy obsession with obscure soul music. Doug wears size 11s but argues that makes him half an inch better!
Anne Toler, HR Associate
Shoe size: 5

Claire McPherson, Office Manager
Shoe size: 7
Claire has re-joined Tenandahalf as our new Office Manager where her hyper-organised approach, her incredible eye for detail and her, shall we say, somewhat 'careful' fiscal nature made her a shoe-in to look after the administrative side of the business.
