What’s been your proudest achievement in the past few years?

Celebrating our 40th anniversary  last year and reflecting on our business journey. Tom Fogarty died suddenly in 2002 which was a turning point for us as a family, for the business and for me [Lucy] in my own career. Dad had an uncompromising work ethic and always encouraged my sisters and me to be anything we wanted to be, to be nice along the way, and never take ‘no’ for an answer! Above all he had a fun and energetic approach to life and work, and this spirit still runs through the veins of TT Litho today

What’s your team’s favourite biscuit?

It would have to be a Garibaldi
