What does your job entail?

Put simply, I evaluate how the Repose business operates. I manage the implementation of business strategies and am responsible for Repose's profit and loss accounts. I collaborate with other department heads to ensure manufacturing/production runs smoothly and in accordance with sales & unit quantity. I strive to grow the company in value and volume, to coach and mentor team members as well as recruit new members of staff as the company grows. I change and adapt the business whilst driving CI activities.

Our team. I'm very proud of our team.

What's your favourite Repose product?

The Boston Porter range of products.

If you could swap roles with anyone in Repose, who would it be and why?

Chris and Adam in the foam cutting area, these guys are like walking calculators and I feel this is an area that needs to be understood. I may need one of them with me though, otherwise nothing would get cut.
