We are excited to announce that we have recently teamed up with FlowerBe – a new startup delivering luxury with monthly and fortnightly arrangements of distinctive fresh cut flowers.
FlowerBe was founded by sister and brother team, Lisa Roberts and Sean Millard.
Lisa, studied at Oxford and then at the prestigious Chelsea Physic Gardening School before starting out in landscape gardening and setting up her own company. When she relocated to Wales with her family, she retrained as a florist and currently is the florist for the Principality (Millennium) Stadium. Other corporate clients include UEFA and Sony, and she manages around 100 weddings a year. “There isn’t a flower that she doesn’t know, but the real value lies is in her curation of unique arrangements” says Sean.
While Lisa brings the flower expertise, Sean brings broad commercial experience. After founding the Holy Cross Children’s Trust, which raises funds to support AIDS orphans in South Africa, where they both were born, he spent 13 years with a FTSE 100 multinational in a number of senior marketing and commercial roles across a number of countries. Before leaving to embark on this journey he was the Sales and Marketing Operations Director for the Group.
In August 2016, Sean and Lisa teamed up to bring together Lisa’s floral design skills with Sean’s business and marketing experience to create a luxury startup delivering beautiful fresh flowers to FlowerBe members. Members will get regular deliveries complete with expert guidance to help them create their own range of distinctive arrangements.
Simpleweb are creating the MVP of the FlowerBe system which will launch in Bristol, Cardiff and the surrounding areas in early 2017. Visit flowerbe.co.uk for exclusive pre-launch membership offers.
