We are going to do a series of ‘Meet the Team’ posts to give you a chance to know a bit more about some of the Burstfire staff. This first one will be about our Sales Manager Ross
I’m the latest in the succession of employees from Livingston, Scotland now based at Burstfire HQ in Canary Wharf, London.
As the UK Sales Manager it is my job to help businesses to identify what IT needs they have at the moment and create bespoke solutions for them. I also get to look after all the nice people who are clients of Burstfire. I guess I will also have to take responsibility for the terrible puns taking over our twitter feed.
Around the time I graduated from my Philosophy degree at the University of Edinburgh, the recession hit and all those philosophy jobs dried up. I spent a bit of time travelling the world then found myself down in London. Prior to working at Burstfire I had worked in sales and account management positions for Flight Centre and Sky. I’ve always enjoyed the personal relationship you can build working with small businesses.
When not indulging in Burstfire related activities I’m waiting for the new series of Game of Thrones and hoping Valve made a Left 4 Dead 3! I like to be on a 5-a-side pitch or playing with my band (shameless plug alert! Check us out at https://www.facebook.com/thefleetuk/) and also eating cheese….but who doesn’t?
