Julie-Anne Whitley - Administration Officer

Julie-Anne is sometimes the first voice you’ll speak to when you contact Busby’s – she’s the main office contact, the wrangler of paperwork and the distributor of any quote documents! Keeping things organised and calm is Julie-Anne’s specialty, and no matter what challenge comes her way, she’ll tackle it with a smile.

Outside the office, you’d find Julie-Anne tending to her garden, or off on a travel adventure with her husband.
