After leaving school I spent almost 12 years in the British Army serving in the UK, Europe and the Middle East on various tours, learning about how people and communities work. I believe that this gives me an edge on some of my competition when it comes to dealing with people on a consultative basis.
After leaving the forces I moved into sales, setting up my own sales/call centre during the PPI epidemic. I took the business from its initial embryo form through to having in excess of 50 members of staff across 4 departments.
After selling the business I then moved into the Motor trade as a sales executive which helped me hone my sales and people skills.
During my time in the Motor trade I worked as both a sales executive and a Business Manager helping and guiding customers through the sales process from initial enquiry to driving home in a brand new car.
I left the Motor trade to be able to spend more time with my children and moved into a more consultative account and business development role working in the managed print services industry focusing on managed print and Saas on a day to day basis. This was a much more consultative role focusing on supplying companies with a service that suited the requirements.
I am very excited about joining eLocker and the opportunities that it brings! From learning an entirely new area of technology to working more on the project management, development and marketing side of the business with a great close knit team of people.
