I began working when I was fifteen years old. Since then I have gained experience in hospitality, customer care, retailing, direct sales, marketing and insurance. I’ve lived and worked abroad. I have an analytical approach to business and enjoy the communication process around developing professional relationships. I hike and travel regularly. I am a father to an eighteen month old son. I am a family man. I like to explore, study, learn and master new things, both in my personal life and professional career. Ultimately, I would like to be part of a team who are remembered for creating something great and leaving our mark on the world.
I took one step closer to achieving this goal in February 2015 by joining CashAnalytics as their European Sales representative. My goal here is to raise the profile of CashAnalytics and to help position the company as the number one provider of cash liquidity management solutions globally. I am excited to be part of such a dedicated and talented team and look forward to the years ahead.
European Sales Executive @ CashAnalytics is a leading provider of cash forecasting and liquidity management solutions. Our customers range from mid-cap private equity backed companies to large FTSE 100 multi-nationals. From February 2015 to Present (11 months) Insurance Broker @ During my time here I completed my PDI01 and PDI02 insurance exams while overachieving on monthly KPI's. A keen interest in software and IT lead me to complete a level 8 higher diploma in data analytics by studying at night. I achieved a 2:1 here while maintaining an excellent sales record at Chill. From May 2013 to January 2015 (1 year 9 months) Sales and Marketing Consultant @ My goal here was to help Snap reposition themselves as a digital marketing consultation group. As a marketing consultant I identified opportunities, organised appointments, attended meetings and made presentations in the hope of securing new business contracts and developing long lasting relationships. I gained great experience selling web based products and using a consultative sales approach. Looking back, this experience contributed hugely to the position I find myself in today. From June 2012 to May 2013 (1 year) Sales Team Executive @ I began working here as a door to door sales agent. Throughout the year I moved from a sales agent to a team leader to an assistant team leader and coordinator. My time here can be summarized as a fast paced, high pressurized yet fun filled sales apprenticeship during which I overachieved on every target while managing expectations of both those above me and those who relied on me. From May 2011 to May 2012 (1 year 1 month) Sales and Marketing Assistant @ Throughout college I worked as a sales and marketing assistant across multiple departments within Brown Thomas. While primarily a part time sales assistant, I gained experience in management and marketing with companies such as Neslte Nespresso, Waterford Crystal, Louise Kennedy, Villeroy & Boch and Samsonite Luggage. The experience of working with premium brands and premium clients set a solid foundation for the road to becoming a successful sales executive. From June 2006 to May 2011 (5 years)
