Gary Leatherby, Founder and Managing Director of Chatterbox, and his wife Deana started the two-way radio business 30 years ago from the garage of their home in Surrey. As the business grew Deana’s sister Laura joined and both sets of parents got involved.
The family business went from strength to strength, taking on new people, building relations with suppliers in the sector and embracing new technologies. Over time, alongside the sale and short-term hire of radios, Chatterbox developed a reputation for bespoke integrated communication solutions, with clients across a range of sectors, including retail, leisure, utilities, sporting venues and facilities management. Three years ago Chatterbox joined the CSE Global group, becoming CSE Chatterbox.
Gary says, “Deana, Laura and I are immensely proud to celebrate 30 years in business and would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has worked for us, our suppliers and the clients we work for.”
