How long have you worked for Harlequin?
4 1/2 years
I am a qualified mechanic. I started my apprenticeship with a local bus company and progressed on to a large haulage company to finish my apprenticeship. From there I joined the Royal Navy as a marine engineer. I joined Wolseley in 1999 and worked with them for 15 years, starting off on the trade counter then progressing from branch manager to key accounts manager and then on to network manager, managing 5 branches. During this period, I gained lot of knowledge about the heating & plumbing industry. I started working with Harlequin in April 2014 as Area Sales Manager for Wales & the South West of England gaining experience and knowledge of the oil tank market.
