It’s time for Key Account Manager Neil, to step up to the plate in our next ‘60 seconds with…’ Here’s what he likes most about working at Rotaready, why Kenya is his dream holiday destination and what pips Nando’s to the post as his favourite meal.

What did you do before working at Rotaready?

I have many years experience in client facing roles, mainly in the form of account management or customer success. But many moons ago my first full time job was as a postman (I soon realised 5am starts weren’t for me) and I’ve also worked as a swimming teacher in the past! 

What do you like most about your job?

The general environment of the company is great, everyone has been really supportive & friendly from the outset. But although it may sound a little cliché, the best parts of my job are speaking with clients, building relationships and then catching up with them as regularly as possible!

Where do you see yourself in 20 years time?

Semi-retired, near a beach somewhere on the south coast!

If you weren’t working in the Customer team which role would you take on?

I’d still need to maintain some form of client interaction, so I’d probably join my colleague Steve on the sales team and show him how it’s done 😉

What’s your dream holiday destination?

I’ve always wanted to go to on a safari, so I’d probably say Kenya!

What’s your favourite meal?

It will come as a shock to anyone who knows me that I am not going to say Nando’s; although it does come a close second to a roast dinner (particularly a lamb roast)

What are you most likely to be found doing at the weekend?

In the warmer months I’ll be found hacking away around a golf course and going on the occasional fishing trip with my dad! If not, you’ll find me watching some form of sport, or I can usually be found doing something family orientated! 

What’s your best joke?

My partner told me to to stop singing Wonderwall to her. I said maybe……
