    What is your favourite thing about your role at FASTSIGNS?
    I love having the opportunity to get to know a whole variety of customers and forge lasting relationships. And seeing the finished signs and graphics installed is really rewarding.
    What’s the most memorable project you’ve worked on?
    Being a part of the Trinity Shopping Centre development was great as it was such a prominent project that people were getting excited about across the county. Lakeside Shopping Centre in Essex was also brilliant as we supplied a huge variety of signs and it was our biggest project to date.
    What do you like to do outside of work?
    I enjoy watching my sons play rugby, as well as cycling and playing golf myself. I’m also a big supporter of Leeds United and Leeds Rhinos.

    What is your favourite thing about your role at FASTSIGNS?
    I like that the role is so varied, so no two days are the same. I also enjoy helping people with their projects.
    What’s the most memorable project you’ve worked on?
    Trinity Leeds was my largest project to date, with a tight lead time. I spent a lot of time on site, dealing with numerous people. We did everything in the original brief and more, delivering the project on time. It was a huge achievement and I worked with a brilliant team to get it all done.
    What do you like to do outside of work?
    At the moment I enjoy spending time with my family, I have a two year old daughter who takes up most of my spare time. When I can, I enjoy catching up with friends and that usually involves a glass of wine (or two!)

    What is your favourite thing about your role at FASTSIGNS?
    Getting the opportunity to work on a wide variety of projects with their own unique challenges, creative and otherwise. It’s great to exceed the expectation of the client. And as much tea as you can drink. I like tea.

    We recently worked with Hitachi Finance to create bespoke signage for a new staff café. We created an illuminated, 3-dimensional logo that looked fantastic. It was great to work with a client who challenged us and had the vision to trust us.
    What do you like to do outside of work?
    I love being outdoors walking in the Dales or Lake District. I love days out with the kids exploring beaches, zoos, museums, crazy golf… anything! It gives me an excuse to be a big kid.
