Bridgette Smith

Director

Bridgette is the Director responsible for Human Resources and Office Management.

I work at least three days a week and look after my grandsons on the other two days.  My background is with the Inland Revenue and later as a Senior Manager in the NHS.

I broke my leg badly in a skiing accident in 2002 and while away from work, wrote a business plan to realise a long held ambition of opening a children’s day nursery.  I did this for eight years, expanding and developing an established nursery in Cheltenham and then sold the business after receiving an ‘offer I couldn’t refuse’.

I really didn’t enjoy being at home all the time (not quite ready for retirement!) so joined my husband Martyn in running Converge.  I’ve never looked back and really enjoy working with the incredible team of professionals here.  The company has grown considerably, and continues to do so, but we have retained a family feel to the business and I’m extremely proud of our staff – we offer such a good service, sometimes under difficult circumstances, and are still able to have a good laugh while doing so!
