Donna Delane

Donna grew up in Wembley Park and attended City of London School for Girls (she would have preferred to go to the Boys School!). She went on to attend a bilingual business course (French & English), eventually getting her first job at an international advertising agency.

Over the years, Donna worked her way up to becoming director and ran key European accounts such as Pepsi, Gillette, and Apple from London. If you haven’t heard her story about being one of the first people in the world to use an Apple Mac, then you are an exception rather than a rule!

Donna’s role at the agency involved constant travel around Europe, and after becoming pregnant with Josh she needed a change from the ‘jet-setter’ lifestyle. Richard was setting up The Wood Works, and she decided to help him at the office, often with Josh strapped to her back.

Donna started in the administrative function, so that Richard could have more time to focus on designing and building furniture. Over time her role has evolved and is now all encompassing – stretching from operations to design to sales. Donna relishes bringing the different elements of a project together. She also enjoys exploring her creative side when working closely with interior designers.

Donna, much like Richard, loves seeing clients happy with their interior design vision realised in beautifully crafted furniture. It gives her immense joy and pride to see clients come back to The Wood Works time and time again.

Outside of work Donna wears gym clothes to fool people into thinking she’s active. Richard bought her a treadmill which is yet to be used. Donna loves to shop, going on holidays, and enjoys drinking good wine with good food in good company.
