Introducing… Paul Sykes
In our first of a series of “introducing…” blogs where we familiarise you with some of the team at Broder, meet Paul Sykes, our newest addition to the UK Sales team.
Paul is a seasoned Sales Manager with over 30 years’ experience in the Steel Industry, previously working at Ellis Engineering, John F Salt, Maher and eleven years at Langley Alloys. In Paul’s career, he has travelled all over the world and praises Singapore as his favourite city of all. Now UK based, as Senior Sales Executive Paul has wasted no time getting out on the road to introduce himself to our customers, bumping into some familiar faces on the way. In the last couple of months he’s been trawling over South Yorkshire and the midlands, visiting over 30 companies from Wetherby to Walsall. Based in Brighouse himself, Paul isn’t a Wednesday or United fan (following Huddersfield if anyone), however he’s gained acceptance into the fold with the help of his wife’s butter cream and caramel cakes. We won’t be trying any of Paul’s baking however, as unbelievably he’s confessed to cooking one meal in his lifetime! When Paul is in the office he can be seen scoffing and nattering to our UK fastener customers, a market with which he has dealt with for over 10 years. If you haven’t met Paul you are soon to, as after a teeny car collision last week he’s back on the road, unscathed and undeterred. But before meeting him a word of warning – lock up your cakes!
