For the previous 5 years I have performed the role of Sales Manager to the Managed Services External Sales Team. Working with the department day in day out, I not only assist them all to help them generate and maximise opportunities to grow our offerings, but I also help try and develop them all individually through guidance and encouragement. Prior to my role as Sales Manager, I was an Account Manager working within this department, I was the first external sales person in the Managed Services Division at PCS.
Apart from my children of course, all of my personal achievements are sport related which were achieved in my early to mid-twenties.
I held out hopes of playing cricket professionally full time, and along with this, I was also lucky enough to represent my county at 3 different sports (Cricket, football and Badminton) and played for England under 19’s in cricket.
Unfortunately, I had to retire from all sports due to a severe back condition in my mid 20’s.
I also think it is commendable in making the 170 mile round trip journey to work and back each day for 13 years! Which I apparently I have never mentioned.
Sounding very old and boring now, I don’t really play any competitive sport anymore, so all of my time is family time. I especially enjoy time with my kids, and each weekend it is very much with them either playing sport, games and activities and generally anything they tell me to do!
I still love my football and cricket, when I can I end up watching sport as much as I can.
I am also not ashamed to say that I love my superhero films and TV shows.

I was lucky enough to once play against a couple of cricket greats in Andrew Flintoff and Kevin Pieterson.
I also had the opportunity to net with the Australian test cricket team in my under 19 days.
