What does your job involve?
As UK & IRL Sales & Strategy Director, my job involves planning and implementing a new sales strategy for UKI and building a new sales team. There is lots of daily interaction with key teams across the business, both UK and International as well as meeting with our key customers and partners to strengthen and build relationships. There is also lots of hands on work with my team in the UK; providing strategy and direction, helping solve problems for customers and partners, customer negotiations, closing deals and a fair bit of number crunching!
I am also heavily involved in the integration of our products and services business (Trams) into the financing side of the business and am looking to grow the number of International deals we work on, alongside our International leadership team.
Since my role involves multiple responsibilities it means everyday is fun, albeit with challenges, varied and interesting!
What spurs you on each day?
My team! The energy and motivation we have in our team is catching! And I am looking for each and every member of the team to achieve their personal career goals.
The example I am setting for my daughters as a female in leadership is also very important to me. Diversity and inclusion in the workplace is a subject very close to my heart.
Would you advise a friend to apply for a job at Econocom?
Yes, absolutely! Econocom is an exciting place to work and we are building a culture that is open, diverse, fast paced and still retains its original entrepreneurial spirit.
Nothing speaks more to this fact than this is my second tenure at Econocom!
Could you tell us a little anecdote to illustrate your work at Econocom?
No one day, no one deal, no one customer is the same – this is what makes Econocom unique – to work for and to work with!
