What is your hometown?
What do you do at Chards?
Sales & Marketing Manager
How did you come to work at Chards?
Oddly it was through a friend who’d been quizzing me for years over my career and sales experience and then all in quite a hectic few weeks I found myself up in “Sunny Blackpool” on my first day at work!
One thing you didn’t know about the coin / bullion industry before working at Chards?
All sorts of things, I had no idea how many mints there were, any of the history, I had no idea what an interesting field I was stepping into!
What's the best thing about working at Chards?
Honestly it's the people, from my first interactions to now I've had nothing but friendliness, banter and the odd prank thrown my way, it's absolutely the environment to work in you'd want!
What would you be doing if you weren't working at Chards?
Probably be back stuck in a corporate entity trying my best to not be just an employee number!
Will you be investing in precious metals etc?
Ha! I can't say it hasn't crossed my mind, I'm hoping the boss gives me a few kg's of gold as a bonus next year ;-)
What's your favourite coin?
It's either something really whacky like the Dinosauria "Megalasaurus" coin OR I actually saw a really cool "Kings Speech" coin with the entire speech engraved onto the reverse which I thought was spectacular!
What's your favourite quote?
Oh this is tricky, I'm a sucker for an inspirational quote such as "Rise and Rise again, until lambs become lions" or one of my all time favourites is "clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose" from one of my fav tv shows!
What are your current top 3 podcasts / books?
1/ Going Postal by Terry Pratchett
2/ The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien
3/ Up: My Life's Journey to the Top of Everest by Ben Fogle - this one actually changed my life!
What are you watching at the moment?
I've just finished Mighty Ducks Game Changers – really hits you in the nostalgia feels! And I've literally watched Cobra Kai Seasons 1-3 at least 20 times!
If you could be anywhere in world right now, where would you want to be?
I’d actually love to be somewhere in the Himalayas right now trekking my way to Everest Base Camp!
What's your favourite food?
Authentic Italian! Nothing better than sitting out in Venice with a good meal and great visuals!
