I have been involved in logistics all my life! My dad had his own company and that’s where it all started.
After working with him for a few years, I took an agency job with Electrolux. I started off as a driver and 20 years later I was the Logistics Quality Manager not only for the UK but Ireland and Denmark too!
I wanted to progress and take my career to the next level so departed for a new challenge with Gerflor, as their Logistics manager. I was promoted to Logistics and Operations manager within 2 years and really enjoyed my time there. After 5 years, a new challenge was calling and that’s when I found Find Me A Gift.
I needed a change in direction, more responsibility and to work for a progressive company, which is just what I have! We do 50% of the company turnover between September – December, which we call ‘Peak’. I love peak, the hustle and bustle of being on the shop floor, with over 100 staff working to get up to 9,000 orders out of the door every day. It requires me to be on the ball problem solving and that’s where I feel I can really make a difference.
