Annette gained 15 years commercial experience in a sales and marketing environment with a world leading Wine & Spirit Company, She recognised the opportunity to use her transferable skills and commercial experience to invest in the outdoor experience which is now Wales Premier Paintball Site based at Cowbridge.  Her objective was to exploit the subsequent opportunity for the benefit of the leisure and tourism industry in Wales.
