Chris Pengelly

Admin & Data Assistant

It’s my job to keep the Growth Hub as efficient as possible. Whether dealing with invoices and expenses to ordering stationary, I aim to support the team wherever possible.

I’ve come a long way since I was born in Plymouth at only 2lb 6oz’s. I’ve lived in Cornwall all my life enjoying every moment of it (even the Cornish summer).

My career started as an apprentice administrator for Invest in Cornwall during 2016 and I spent my time there learning skills that I use today. I decided to make the switch to become the Project Administrator for the Growth Hub and started August 2017.

Business idea that I’m secretly plotting: I really would like to run my own hotel one day. It’s been a dream of mine since I was little.

My perfect day involves: A nice lie-in, playing some video games and spending time with my friends and family as well as my malamute Memphis.

Local businesses that I salute: Any business which is ambitious and wants to see growth for the company.
