Tell us a little about your role
My role is really unique and enjoyable, I am able to have daily contact with our customers and potential customers, making sure they have what they need and that all avenues and beneficial options are explored for them, to ensure they are making the most out of their V-TUF kit. Internally, I try to make small improvements that have a positive effect on the organisation and members of the team, so that they enjoy coming to work and being a part of the V-TUF family.
What’s your favourite thing about V-TUF?
V-TUF is on a mission to save and improve the lives of its customers whilst being kind to our environment. These are the elements of the organisation that make what I do a pleasure, knowing that we are making a difference, however small, and potentially saving someone from the harmful elements of their job.
What’s it like being a Business Development Director at V-TUF?
Exciting! The freedom to think creatively about solving the problems that face our consumers and equally creative ways to collaborate with our retailers, and having such a great team to help communicate and deliver these solutions, it’s really fantastic.
Tell us a random interesting fact about yourself
I was born in Pietermaritzburg.
And your most memorable moment during your career so far with V-TUF?
When we made the decision to become an organisation that aligns with a real mission focused on value and benefit for our customers, as opposed to a hard sell organisation. This mission being pushed forward by many groups is driving positive change to our current health statistics.
What’s your favourite thing to do outside of work?
I love seeing my family and spending time with them.
