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 Internal Account Manager, Ted.
What’s your name, job title and how long have you been at GKD?
Hi I’m Ted Bignell, my role is Internal Account Manager and I have been with the company just over a year.
Before you joined GKD where did you work / what did you do?
Before GKD I primarily worked in hospitality, where the majority of and most recent role was Store Manager. This has ranged from coffee shops to bakeries (where I was always happy to be the sampler of any of the products!).
What do you like about your job?
The aspect I enjoy most about working for GKD is being able to speak to a vast range of people on a day to day basis, whether that be externally or within GKD. Of course this has been restricted to emails and calls recently, so I am looking forward to more face to face encounters.
What are you looking forward to over the next six months?
Being able to visit as many sites/conventions/roadshows as possible. The last year has really helped grow my knowledge in the market but nothing beats getting out there and experiencing it first-hand.
Tell us about those phrases you picked to describe yourself!
I think the term ‘Sport Enthusiast’ could be an understatement with me, I can always make time to watch or play a sport. Although that has been harder recently while getting onto the property ladder of course.
We hope you enjoyed learning a little bit more about Ted. You can get to know more of our team members below.
