Welcome to Ideal! What's your new job title?

Account manager

What will you be doing day to day?

Working with (account director) Jeremy Stevens. I'll be working through his customers to maximise opportunities and to build on our existing relationships. The other aspect of my role will be new business, as I try and generate new customers for myself and Jeremy.

What attracted you to Ideal?

The Ideal workplace video grabbed my attention, along with the company's fast growth and expansion. I also like Ideal's working environment and culture.


What are you most looking forward to?

I am most looking forward to building my knowledge base and bringing in additional deals.

Tell us about your career in 100 words or less

I have had a fairly diverse career so far. One of my largest accomplishments was helping start a company from scratch, and building it into a successful organisation. I have gained a fairly widespread technical knowledge along the way and am keen to progress more within the IT infrastructure environment.

What will be your biggest challenge(s)?

Getting off to a great start and fulfilling my expectations within my role.

In five years, what do you hope to have achieved?

To be successful and to have progressed well in my career. To be well off financially, and to be fit and healthy in general life.

What do you do outside work?

I like to live a fairly balanced life, keeping fit at the gym, but I also enjoy good food and wine and the occasional night out.

Recommend a film, TV show, game or book

The Missing (Drama TV Series). Gripping from start to finish.
