Founding Too Marvellous...
My name is Graham Holland, I grew up in Yorkshire in the town of Harrogate. It is here where I began my career and qualified as a jeweller with A. Fattorini, a high profile retailer founded in 1831. It was a trade that I came to love and an employer who’s training in customer service and attention to detail I will always cherish dearly. The importance of the grounding that I acquired during my 6 years with them was one of the most important lessons that I had ever received.
It was with A. Fattorini that my love and appreciation for fine, handmade, beautifully designed and manufactured product began.
The desire to travel outside of the boundaries of Yorkshire however was too strong and I resigned my position in the mid 1990’s.
A year in Sydney Australia was the next important chapter in my young life, and my first taste of management. I was recruited as manager of the concession for Noritake, Japanese fine china and porcelain, within David Jones department store.
Upon returning to the UK, and in order to expand my knowledge of fine product I took a position with London’s Fortnum and Mason. Here I stayed for three years until I was offered the opportunity to start my own business, an ambition that had been growing quite rapidly for some time. On a totally different tack I, along with two business partners bought into a restaurant franchise and in 2001 opened our doors to the people of Battersea, south west London.
A great learning experience for me but I must confess I very quickly began to realise that this was not the calling I had hoped it would be! The restaurant was sold in 2004 when one of the partners decided he wanted to leave the business in order to run his own pub in the Hampshire countryside.
The last chapter saw me return to my colleagues and friends at Fortnum and Mason where I was promoted to buyer. For eight years I was involved with the procurement of various departments including perfumery and toiletries, gentlemen’s grooming, cookshop, fine china and crystal and my old favourites silver and antiques!
The various lessons and skills I had learnt over my career became the focus of consideration after leaving Fortnum and Mason. It was here when I decided to focus my attention on doing something for myself and so it began...
