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 Digital Marketing Executive, Tom!
What’s your name, job title and how long have you been at GKD?
Hi, I’m Tom, the Digital Marketing Executive here at GKD. I only joined a month ago so I’m the newbie to the team!
Before you joined GKD where did you work / what did you do?
I’ve worked in digital marketing roles across a range of sectors, including education, interior decorating and construction. Most recently I worked for the retirement apartment builder, McCarthy Stone.
What do you like about your job?
Having come from large organisations with hundreds (and sometimes thousands!) of employees, the change to a smaller team is nice. That we’re starting a lot of our digital marketing activity from almost a blank canvas is great and gets the creative juices flowing!
What are you looking forward to over the next six months?
Growing the GKD brand overseas is definitely exciting. It’ll be nice to finally meet my colleagues in person too!
Tell us about those phrases you picked to describe yourself!
A lot of my spare time these days is spent running around after my 2 year old! I’m a big lover of sports, so when I get a break you’ll probably find me watching the footy (although unfortunately I’m a Nottingham Forest fan), and maybe some guilty-pleasure reality television shows. A random fact that most people don’t expect is that I have hosted a weekly football podcast since 2017!
We hope you enjoyed learning a little bit more about Tom. Keep a look out as we get to know more of our team members over the coming weeks!
