What brought you to this industry?
Chance! Once identified as someone who understood the “black art” of pallet control requests for help kept coming in.

Meeting the people who have to deal with the operational reality of controlling multiple platform assets and finding a solution that fits in with their working day that also gives cost effective management.
Who inspired you most in your career?
My kids – starting my own business meant that I could adapt my working day to spend time with them and earn money at the same time.
If you were an item in a warehouse, what would you be?
An all in one spanner! I work in so many areas in the supply chain and warehouse and need so many different skills I never know which one I will need during the day.

I’m not sure that I would change anything, I have enjoyed building up the business and have worked and am working with some great people and companies.

Turning up for an important meeting still wearing my slippers!

To spend time to work with and learn from everyone in the supply chain, from the guy on the back door to understanding the challenges management face – everyone has so much to offer.
