Twenty years after setting up her own design business, Wendy Maltman celebrated the official opening of The Malting House’s new studio in Dundee’s trendy West Port today with a visit from Lord Provost, Bill Campbell.
It marked the end of a busy week which saw The Malting House Marketing Director, Debbie Hutchison, presenting at the Business Gateway Transform Business Festival, and the exciting news that the company has been shortlisted in the Centre for Engineering Education & Development (CeeD) Industry Awards.
The Malting House is shortlisted for the Impact through Innovative Marketing award and Wendy has received a personal nomination for the Women in Industry award.
Wendy became self-employed when her son was a few months old, so she could combine her family commitments with the design career she loved. A hard worker who sets high standards for herself, Wendy built up an excellent reputation with businesses and organisations of all sizes, local and throughout the UK.
Over twenty years, Wendy has gathered an all-female team around her, and she continues in her determination to create a business that supports women throughout their careers, so that they can reach their potential in their chosen profession. This includes offering placement opportunities to design and business students.
Wendy said “The Malting House core values include courage and care; our clients benefit from the challenge and encouragement we give them. Many businesses and organisations have flourished following our intervention with our expert design and marketing advice, and our clients appreciate our empathic understanding of the particular challenges they face.”
Wendy and Debbie will find out if they have been successful in the CeeD Industry Awards when they attend the celebratory dinner in Glasgow next Thursday.
