As a commemoration of International Women’s Day, it’s the perfect time to celebrate our newest female franchisee to the Signs Express network.
Mayura Joshi recently became the Owner of Signs Express (Colchester & Chelmsford), celebrating the opening of her centre at the end of 2018. Workers in the signage industry are predominantly male, so the introduction of another female business owner to the Signs Express network perfectly complements the 2019 International Women’s Day theme, Balance for Better. Celebrated annually on 8th March and emphasising “collective action and shared responsibility for driving a gender-balanced world”, International Women’s Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women while also marking a call to action for accelerating gender balance. Graduating from the Indian Institute of Planning and Management in New Delhi with a Masters degree in Management (the equivalent of a British MBA), Mayura began her career in Business Development for a web solutions firm. This gave rise to an 11-year career in corporate management consulting and in-house project work. Since moving to the UK, Mayura has also worked as a contracted HR Project Manager and run an online retail business at the same time as raising two children. Ready to take on a new entrepreneurial opportunity, Mayura came to Signs Express excited at the prospect of owning a franchise and being her own boss. The arrival of the Signs Express centre brings new opportunities for businesses to benefit from the latest innovative signage solutions. Covering Colchester, Chelmsford and the surrounding areas including Clacton, Frinton, Witham, Maldon, Ingatestone and Woodham Ferrers, Mayura and her team offer exceptional services to assist their local businesses.
Speaking of her latest venture, Mayura explained,
I’m incredibly keen to establish the Signs Express brand in Colchester and Chelmsford and deliver the best possible service to our customers. I find it quite amusing when I regularly come across people who are surprised at the fact that not only do I run a signage company but I also do it single-handedly. I genuinely believe that it’s a ‘person’ that gets the job done, it doesn’t matter if you are male or female.Mayura JoshiSigns Express (Colchester & Chelmsford)Managing Director of Signs Express, Jonathan Bean, commented, “I’m so pleased to see more women progressing into what has always been a male-dominated industry. Mayura’s tenacity and eagerness gives me every confidence that she’ll do a fantastic job of leading the franchise in supporting Colchester and Chelmsford’s local businesses with their signage needs. We’re all excited to work with her and her team over the coming months and can’t wait to see the business take off in 2019.” Mayura’s centre is a fully equipped production facility with a temperature-controlled vehicle bay, offering a full range of signs and graphics solutions including vehicle graphics, illuminated signs, office signs, exhibition displays, window graphics and much more. Just three months in, Mayura and her highly skilled team have already completed several impressive projects and are available to assist with any signage requirements their local businesses may need. Give them a call today on 01206 239313 (Colchester) or 01245 847766 (Chelmsford) to discuss your requirements, and support #BalanceforBetter.
