Our ‘Meet the Team’ series is designed so that you can get to know us friendly folk at GKD a little bit better.
Next up, we’ve got our Sales and Support Administrator, Caroline!
What’s your name, job title and when did you first start GKD?
I’m Caroline Price, the new Sales & Support Administrator. I have been with GKD for a just over a month.
Before you founded GKD, where did you work and what did you do?
I am originally from London, where I worked in Business Continuity, providing I.T support and scheduling test scenarios of disaster recovery for clients. Quite exciting at times! Prior to joining GKD, I worked in the valve industry for 15 years where I worked in purchasing, order management and sales support.
What was the inspiration behind starting GKD?
I like that every day is different, so my day flies by. It’s great! I enjoy chatting to customers and my colleagues, learning new processes and also gaining knowledge about the business and the industry. Every day is a school day.
What are you looking forward to over the next six months?
I am looking forward to learning more about GKD products, providing excellent support for our business and building good relationships with our customers.
Tell us about those phrases you picked to describe yourself!
Dance mum – Dance mum relates to my lost Saturdays ferrying my daughter to her many dance classes, but it’s not all bad. I get to catch a cheeky coffee at the local Eco Village and chitter chatter with the other dance mums!
Happy – I think of myself as a happy person with a good sense of humour. And smiling reduces frown lines, well that’s my thinking.
Caring – I like to think of others and how my actions impact them.
Planning and Organised – I like to be organised, know things are in the right order and where things are. I like to plan ahead so things are booked and in place. I’m not a control freak, honest!!
Enjoys gigs and shows – I enjoy going to music gigs, having a drink, dance and singalong. And I love going to the theatre. I have quite a few shows booked for this year so it something nice to look forward to.
Dog lover – I have two dogs, both crosses, pug x shih tzu and a Jack Russell x shih tzu. A bit of a combination, but they are my crazy fur babies, and I would miss not tripping over them everywhere I walk. They say people are like their dogs… well, maybe a little!
We hope you enjoyed learning more about Caroline. Keep a look out as we get to know more of our team members over the coming weeks!
