I always knew what I wanted to do from a very early age. The Merchant Navy! So, as a 16 year old I was the 4th hand of a crew of 4 on a small coasting vessel, importing and exporting bulk cargo through the UK east coast ports to the near continent, including The Netherlands, Belgium and France.
It proved to be good training. Working long hours, as part of a team, and with great responsibility stood me in good stead for the role of Production Manager at Page Bros!
I have a great team around me, and I love the challenges of production management and the exciting printed products that we get to be a part of creating everyday.
I’d describe myself as a ‘determined realist’. I’m a systematic organiser who enjoys working with people to maintain a workflow that is precise and on time.
In my spare time I love to travel and enjoy other cultures. I also relish quality family time, which basically means watching my children outgrow me!
