Can you tell us about your background?
I have a background in the gift card industry, focusing specifically on account management both in terms of building strong relationships and driving commercial results for retailers, but also for providing the best solutions for corporate customers who use gift cards within their various programmes.
I really enjoy what I do, because no two days are ever the same, which is both challenging and rewarding!
What are some of the key trends that you are seeing in our industry?
As with most other industries, technology is leading the way for change and transformation whether it’s the distribution of digital gift cards or creating portals. The impact that technology is having on our sector and our business is very exciting.
What attracted you to National Gift Card Europe?
I was initially very attracted to the strategic vision at National Gift Card Europe. The company values are also appealing, and are really brought to life through the team. I am also very excited to explore the many new opportunities that await.
Finally, can you tell us what your guilty pleasure is?!
With a busy job and home life, there is not always lots of time to spend on guilty pleasures, however I am definitely partial to eating a whole packet of biscuits with a wee cup of tea!
