National Account Manager
All About Tom
Hello! My name is Tom and I am the National Account Manager for both Asda and Ocado.I love my sport and after a stint living in America when I was younger, I came back with some not too shabby basketball skills which I put to good use whilst playing toa county level. I also love my rugby and played outside centrefor Crewe and Nantwich for quite a few years, nowadays thoughI tend to get my sport kicks from playingfootball and golf once a week. I also love to travel and aim to fit in as many city breaks as I can throughout the year, eating out as much as possible in the mean time!
After finishing University with a 2:1 in Banking and Accounting I started in a purchasing role for a retail service provider,where I was responsible for buying in cosmeticswithin the Health & Beauty sector for a number of top UK retailers. After a couple of years’ experience in operations I moved into sales, starting in anAccount Management role within the cosmetic sector– I loved it and have stayed within sales ever since. My last role prior to joining AFB was as the Senior Business Development Manager for a Cosmetic Manufacturer based in Stoke, with new sales into Retail being my prime target.
A willingness to learn and grow as part of a team, I am hardworking and always stay positive, keeping a smile on my face wherever possible!
Heading up a team in the Million Maker’s challenge that raised the 8th highest total in the country. The challenge was to turn an initial £1k investment into as much profit for the Prince’s Trust charity that we could, our efforts culminated in an organised 1920’s ball for over 300 customers and suppliers that raised over£17.5k on the night which was all donated to the Prince’s Trust.
Keep your family and friends close, travel, try new things, eat well and stay positive.
A passion for sport, eating good food and travelling! I’m aMan Utd fan, an England supporter in the football and very controversially with my friends, Wales in the Rugby (I am half Welsh if you were wondering why!)
