Background within Vodafone: I was lucky enough to get a job in sales with this fantastic company and progressed through to managing teams and training, but when the opportunity to use my experience came up with the best department, there wasn’t time to think before I’d applied.

What is your favourite season? Football season! But I’m definitely a warm weather person so Summer.

What is your favourite song of all time? That’s tough! I’m a Heavy Metal/Rock person, so although not heavy, I’d say Anastasia by Slash closely followed by Sweet Child of mine by G’n’R’ which I sing to my son.

What’s the most played song on your device? Probably Alter Bridge- Slip To The Void as it automatically starts there in my car, but most listened to bands are FFDP or Avenged Sevenfold.

All-time favourite movie? I should say something deep and thought provoking, but I’m a big kid and any super hero movie does it. Favourite is The Dark Knight.

What app makes your life easier?  eBay. I’m forever thinking “Oh, I need a…” n then go straight on eBay and order it!         

A little more about me: I struggle to take anything too seriously, so quite the joker within the team (and can push my manager to the limit). I started out as a chef, working in France and some very established restaurants, but I’m from Dover and the life at sea runs through the family, so I joined the Merchant Navy as a Marine Engineer until the pull of home comforts (and the Mrs) bought me back to Stoke.

A little more about me: I have very eclectic tastes as you can see! The most important thing to me is my family and I love nothing more than cuddling up in front of the TV with a film or good TV series. If I’m not doing that then I’m probably gaming (Mass Effect, Skyrim, Fable, Harry Potter) or reading. At the weekend I bake. @Kay, @JD and @Simon have also had some epic game nights either with Rock Band or board games – I am master of The Chase after several drinks!
