Next up, we’ve got our Vice President of Sales, Matt!
What’s your name, job title and how long have you been at GKD?

Before joining GKD I’ve worked as a Sales Director for tech/software businesses in the construction sector.
What do you like about your job?
The opportunity to bring safety innovation into the industry is really exciting!
What are you looking forward to over the next six months?
Building on the long-standing foundations and sharing the GDK secret globally.
Tell us about those phrases you picked to describe yourself!
Life lover – I love to get the most from any spare time we get. I’m always on the go, whether that be holidays, sports, exercise or just generally being out and about. I’m originally a city boy from Birmingham, however we’ve been fortunate enough to move to rural Staffordshire 18 years ago so now I get to enjoy the countryside and all it has to offer.
Parent & Grandparent – I have three children – 10, 14 & the eldest 28, who recently became a father himself.
Mountain biker – Nearly every weekend I’ll be found out cycling at my local bike trails or further afield in the Welsh mountains (or even the French Alps travel permitting!). I’ve also spent many years snowboarding and even tried skydiving a few years back.
Sports fan – My favourite spectator sport has to be F1, which is definitely an interesting one this season with some of the younger drivers coming through. I’m also an Aston Villa fan but enjoy pretty much all sports.
Middle aged – I also have a significant birthday in September, but will leave that for you to work out which one…
We hope you enjoyed learning a little bit more about Matt. Keep a look out as we get to know more of our team members over the coming weeks!
