SAM_1835[5]WLN – What’s the most exciting thing about your job?  

I enjoy working with customers to develop ideas to improve efficiency, which ultimately saves money. Every customer is unique and has different requirements and I enjoy discovering what these are.

WLN – Who inspired you most in your career?

My Dad was a marketing professional. He taught me to put the customer at the centre of everything and be passionate about what you do – if you don’t believe your product or service is the best, work somewhere else!

WLN – If you were an item in a warehouse, what would you be?

I would have to say a battery in a fork lift truck – the power house at the heart of everything!

WLN – What brought you to this industry?

It was the company rather than the industry that attracted me. Midac UK has been going for three years, so it’s very motivating to be part of a young and rapidly growing company. These are exciting times for Midac UK and I want to be part of their future.

You’ll have to buy me a few wines before I’ll tell you that, but it involves a man in a boiler suit.
