"Innovation is a key aspect of life here at TTS."
I’ve been at TTS for six years, but it doesn’t feel anywhere near that long! My role as Managing Director is to ensure that we are a very successful growing global company, which continually develops brilliant products and has great future plans. We have a fantastic workforce, performing at a very high level every single day who are ambitious, dedicated and completely focused on delighting our customers.
My working career has been deliberately very varied. After student holiday jobs at a supermarket, and as a greengrocer's driver (with a daily start time of 3 a.m.), I started my career in September 1987 following a summer spent as a football coach in the USA. My first job was in sales with Mars, where I also worked in production, as well taking a supply chain role for Mars in Australia. Over time I have worked in some great market leading companies; and with many great people at Mars, Holsten, United Biscuits, Dyson, Whirlpool Appliances and Anglian Home Improvements.
Innovation is a key aspect of life here at TTS. Products I love include both the rustic caravan (only TTS would design and make a wonderful resource like this for Early Years) and the Blue-Bot (a blue-tooth enabled evolution of Bee-Bot, which is perfect for the programming element of the computing curriculum, as well as being an incredibly versatile cross-curricular resource).
Outside work, I spend as much time as I can with my wife Angela and my two sons. I love travelling, football, playing golf, and trying to keep fit by running and cycling. I completed the New York marathon - never again!
