About Us - passion, quality, care

Meet the Team

Name: Richard Furlong

Position: Projects and Marketing Manager

History: Richard began working with TransAction at the beginning of his Masters at the University of Sheffield in 2010 and has stayed on to become Marketing Manager.

Languages you work with: English, French and Spanish.

Favourite thing about TransAction: I’m proud to work for a company that has both strong local roots and national and international reach. Really though, I like the way in which languages bring people together, so it’s great to work for a company which retains a personal service; something which is increasingly rare in what can be quite a detached industry.

Most interesting job you have worked on: That’s a tough one, but I always enjoy the work we do for football clubs (Richard supports Tranmere Rovers, but we forgive him).

Name: Paula Shepherd

Position: IT and Admin Assistant

History: Hailing from Sheffield, Paula was a teacher in her previous life and came to work at TransAction in the summer of 2011.

Languages you work with: French and German, with a smattering of Italian, Czech and Croatian.

Favourite thing about TransAction: Nice people to work with and tea whenever I want!

Most interesting job you have worked on: Putting together the documents for TransAction's internal training, probably because I've been learning all sorts of useful things myself while I've been working on them.

Meet the rest of the TransAction team here.
