What’s currently having the greatest impact on your business?
Changing attitude to sustainability as a change driver and its greater influence on decisions for our resellers.
Where do you see the next big opportunity?
Public sector, the combined effect of a Brexit decision and the renewal of many of the frameworks used by publicly funded organisations, should combine to see a great opportunity and with ‘the Green choice’ Epson offers we foresee a busy period ahead for our resellers.
What would make your day job easier?
There are lots of little things that would help, but I am happy being stretched and would probably seek out more work to fill any space freed up.
What’s the best bit of business advice you’ve been given?
Always understand others’ viewpoint before acting.
If you had had a crystal ball, would you have done anything differently?
Only minor tweaks, decisions made, good, bad or indifferent, have shaped what I am now.

Driving my new car through the HQ window at Danwood on the day of our sales conference was a whoops moment.
What was your first job?
Stationery and typewriter sales.
What would be your dream job?
There’s lots of things that appeal at different times, but pro rugby union player if I were young, fit and skilled enough.
Fine dining and good wine, or curry and a pint?
Happy with both, but curry and a pint would edge it.
Money’s not an issue, what’s your perfect car… and where would you like to drive it?
Classic Porsche 911 Carerra – Amalfi Coast.
Favourite holiday destination?
Always changes when I visit more places, love south Asia, Italy, the States and hopefully Mauritius and Dubai which are next!
