About us Team Staff Profiles Sadie Walton Sadie joined Brunswick in March 2018. Experience I have joined Brunswick from a large Yorkshire based tea and coffee company, where I was responsible for quality control in the coffee procurement team. Prior to that, I ran my own coffee businesses in York for a number of years, setting up my first business when I was just 24. I have worked in training, business consultancy and even dabbled in professional writing. However, a work trip to Africa really changed my perspective on life and made me want to work in a more meaningful role in the charitable sector. A fond memory Brunswick is so important to the workers and is such a huge part of their life. Their joy here is just so clear. A little something about me I am a professional coffee taster and hold a qualification only 60 others in the UK have. I am a collector of pre-loved children’s shoes for a charity which distributes them to children in poverty around the world and to date have collected over 2,000 pairs! At home, I have a son, Miles, and a disturbing number of handbags.
