If you were an item in a warehouse, what would you be?
I would have to say the doors (corny I know).
They are an integral part of the operation as without them the business doesn’t function. Looked after they will be there day in day out working efficiently and effectively for the good of the business.

Not that I can remember but I’m sure someone somewhere will think differently.

Being able to provide a good life for me and my 2 boys.
If you won the lottery, what would you do?

My 14 and 12 year old boys are a constant source of amusement and they always manage to make me smile.

I would love to go to Japan. I find their culture fascinating.

What would your advice to someone thinking about coming into the industry?
Go for it! If you’re up for the challenge of meeting a diverse set of people and learning new skills along the way it’s a great business to be in. It is quite a male dominated business so more women need to be represented.
