Tell us about your role at SFS


Predominantly managing and fulfilling the expectations of major vendor programmes in London and the Home Counties. The focus being on the delivery of creditworthy opportunities to add to the Siemens portfolio of customers.


What makes you an expert?


I spent 34 years in the reprographics industry, having sold directly whilst working for a major manufacturer, and spent the last 14 years in Finance.


I know our Vendors business, and I am qualified to be classed as a trusted advisor.


What is your favourite thing about working for SFS?


Siemens is known for its resilience, reliability and sustainability. A loyal employer, where employees feel they can make a difference.


Tell us a bit about yourself! 


I have been married for 34 years with two grown up daughters, am a Grandad and three dogs who keep us very active and tend to fill our days outside of the working week! We actively compete in Dog Agility and enjoy the outside life.


What does the future hold for you and your team?


Current economic and market backdrops prove the need for agility and digitalisation. The new normal will create new opportunities, maybe even a diversification on assets funded and markets approached.
