Expertise

Sales director BPEC qualified / 10 years business development with a specific focus on making UFH accessible to our Northern merchant base and offering client consultancy on individual projects.

What are you passionate about?

Achievement, family and living life to the full. In a working environment I am passionate about attention to detail, getting things right the first time and providing a service to an industry that needs a consistent and uniform approach.

What inspires you?

Possibilities - can we achieve this? Courage inspires me such as the courage shown by our armed forces. Dedication to a cause and ultimately my children inspire me.

If you could swap places with somebody for a day, who would it be?

I would swap places for a day with Donald Trump just so I could build a wall around him!!

I'd also swap with Nick Faldo, a childhood golfing hero who showed courage and dedication albeit in a sporting amphitheatre to walk away from his profession to rebuild from scratch with the objective to be the best. In an era where his financial security was never assured he walked away and started again. His record thereafter proved he got it about right.

Bad grammar! Geeky I know but as a nation we’re so bad at it. Oh and cheese....

What inspires you?

Dedicated sports people who train all day everyday in all weathers to be the best in the world. Leaving nothing to chance - “marginal gains”. Complete focus and commitment. E.g. Steve Redgrave, Chris Hoy, Serena Williams, Jessica Ennis-Hill.

If you could swap places with somebody for a day, who would it be?

The Prime Minister - would love to know all the secret security stuff we never get to find out about, the amount of information thrown at them everyday that they have to process and make big decisions on. Plus I’d like to “have a word” with Boris Johnson!

Expertise

Commercial Director / MBA qualified / ex Regional Sales Director of FloPlast Building Products, key skills in drainage / rainwater and all above ground building plastics.

What are you passionate about?

Structure and organisation. I am sad enough to admit my Filofax (old skool I know) goes everywhere with me! I love music as it keeps me sane during the countless miles I travel in the car. Away from work I am an avid Sport’s fan (well more watching than participating) and I have a particular interest in Football. Lastly and most importantly I love my free-time on a weekend to spend with my wife and children (Josh, Ben & Sophia). We often go cycling to exhaust the kid’s endless amounts of energy!

What inspires you?

In the 1980’s and at the age of 50 my Grandparents took a massive gamble by leaving home and setting up a Bar Café in Majorca. Alongside my children, my Gran and Grandad's courage and love for life is my greatest inspiration.

If you could swap places with somebody for a day, who would it be?

I've always been full of admiration for Barack Obama. I am in awe of his presence and incredible speaking ability. His calmness and confidence, even under the most severe pressure, is something I would happily experience even if it was just for 24 hours.

If you could swap places with somebody for a day, who would it be?

Being sensible (not my first instinct!) I’d have to say Mahatma Ghandi, to experience his passion that changed the world. However, being truthful... I’ve got to say the wife of Chris Hemsworth, I mean come on… Who’d not want a hug inside those arms !!

Formerly an Area Sales Representative at FloPlast, previous experience in various Account Management and Customer Service roles over the past decade. BSc in Business Studies and Finance.

What are you passionate about?

Being the best you can be and giving it your all. I’m not one to stand still and rest on my laurels, I’m always looking to better myself. At work, I’m passionate about customer delight; customer satisfaction is good, but if your customers are delighted, they will keep coming back!

Outside of work, I love spending time with my fiancée, my two kids and our Cockerpoo, Oscar.

What inspires you?

My two children, Edie and Ezra, inspire me and they are the reason I get up to go to work in the morning.

What are you passionate about?

Organisation. I am not ashamed to admit I have a fondness over keeping all of our files neat and tidy and knowing exactly where everything is. I am a big believer in taking on new challenges and being able to expand my skills to become a stronger member of the team. Out of work, I am very into my gardening, I am growing a reputation of being the plant lady because I can never stop talking about it.  

What inspires you?

It’s a very cliché answer, but my parents inspire me. They are extremely hardworking and driven. Always willing to put someone else before themselves. They have shown me the best examples of how to work hard in life. Although I still have a fair bit of catching up to do. (I still believe Sunday is the day of rest.) 

If you could swap places with somebody for a day, who would it be?

It would have to be Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. An American Politician who is never afraid to be the voice for the people. She has been a personal hero of mine and I would love to see how her day operates and who she’s coming up against next.

Nature, in a nutshell. I love being out and about away from big cities and noise. I love to travel and explore new places but going for a walk in the countryside is enough to recharge my batteries.

If you could swap places with somebody for a day, who would it be?

This is a really hard one… Astronauts I suppose. This is something that I know I will never be able to do, but I’d love to see our beautiful planet in its full glory from space. I also admire how intelligent astronauts are, they are so extremely clever and in very dangerous situations they are trained to be super cool and engineer a way out of any trouble they encounter.
