The ability to work for a company that places people ahead of profits has convinced former Nottingham Trent University graduate Leigh Murcott to join Mansfield based business gifts and promotional goods supplier Pellacraft.

Leigh has a 2:1 degree in graphic design and, prior to joining Pellacraft, worked in the marketing department of a local sports goods retailer developing product packaging, garment graphics, store POS, shop window displays and brand campaigns for the company and other leading sportswear brands.

Commenting on his new role Leigh said, “I have a real thirst to learn new things and I am excited to learn about the in’s and out’s of the promotional merchandise business.  Working at Pellacraft also allows me to focus purely on graphic design, which is my real passion. I was also seeking a new challenge and wanted to feel part of a great working environment that puts people first, before profits.”

Leigh is an avid supporter of Liverpool FC and lives in Shirebrook. He is married with a son called Lucas who is named after Liverpool player Lucas Leiva. He also enjoys playing computer games and is planning to do a gaming marathon in aid of the charity Extra Life which unites thousands of players around the world in a 24 hour gaming event to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Since its inception in 2008, Extra Life has raised more than $14 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to support healthy and safe gaming for kids.
