"He’s prompt, he understands our business model, and he knows his job. He has extensive industry experience, so he knows what works and what doesn’t. Oh, and he always rings you back – a rarity in this industry. Top bloke
all round."

Two and a half years.

Pet shop assistant.

Q    What made you move into the mobile phone industry?
It was 16 years ago, and it was an emerging, innovative industry that looked like it was going to be big. I was right!

Meeting different types of people and no two days being the same.

Sitting in traffic, and especially the moving roadworks on the motorways.

A trip to New York.

Q    If you could suggest an incentive what would it be?
World Cup Final tickets – because I want to be there when England win.

The people, and how the industry is constantly changing and presenting new challenges.

Lose the continual changes by the networks in their commission structures.

Q    If you could design a mobile handset what functions would it have?
The ability to send holograms (so that I can be in two places at once).

Q    If you could capture any image and send as a picture message what would it be, who would you send it to, and why?
Watford winning the playoffs and getting promotion to the Premiership, sent to everyone I know. Why? Because I wouldn’t be able to talk as my voice would have disappeared through cheering.
(must be psychic – get ready for the pics! ED)

A PEBL – smooth and stylish like me!

The standard blackberry ringtone.
