Meet the Team
Delivering Inspiring Workspaces across the South, Arena have been providing bespoke workspace solutions in prime locations across the South for over twelve years.
Sharron is a founding member of Arena and has been with the company since it began in 2003. In her spare time Sharron loves walking on the beach with her two dogs, going for early morning runs in the beautiful Dorset countryside and practicing yoga!
Helen is also a founding member of Arena and began working for the company in 2003. Helen loves the great outdoors and is at her happiest when exploring the countryside with her young family.
Chrissie joined the Arena Team in 2013. She loves to travel the globe and has visited Cuba and India within the last two years. Japan is next on her list!
Mary joined the Arena Team in 2012 and became Regional Manager for Hampshire in 2015. She received her degree in Politics and International Relations from the University of Cardiff.
Mary enjoys watching documentaries – especially those about the emergency services and the natural world. A keen runner and lover of yoga, Mary also enjoys going on country walks… provided there is a pub lunch involved at the end!
She also has a great memory for song lyrics and knows the words to an impressive amount of songs!
Charlotte joined the Arena Team in 2016 and successfully runs our Ferndown centre alongside Carol and Shelley. Her corporate background fits perfectly with Arena and is demonstrated in her organised and professional demeanour.
Charlotte is dynamic and dedicated in all aspects of her life. When asked to name her favourite things she answered 'all the F's… fine food, fizz, friends and family'!
Emma was first introduced to serviced offices in 1997 during her work experience and didn’t stay away for long! In love with the concept and now Arena, Emma works between both our Poole and Ferndown sites to complete our dynamic Dorset team.
When asked, people have described Emma as conscientious, enthusiastic, crazy, animated, fair, firm and fun: during work or play these are all fitting!
Emma is an avid globe trotter and loves to jet off to sunnier destinations, but wherever she is in the world she is always happiest when surrounded with her family and friends.
Julie has been a member of the Arena Team since 2014. Originally from Australia, Julie has lived in England for 12 years and loves the culture of the country as well as its beautiful countryside. She also enjoys being in the great outdoors and loves to travel and go walking. Julie has always had a fondness for the sea and would love to learn how to sail in the future.
