What’s your story, how did you get to Kan?
Originally from South Africa I moved over to the UK about 7 years ago searching for greener pastures and can safely say I was successful!
My previous roles vary: Area sales manager, sales representative, recruitment, warehouse manager, hospitality. All these roles require people skills, problem solving and negotiation skills which comes in handy working as an account manager in the promo world!
What is your role?
Over the past 5 years at Kan I have grown within the company, taking up different challenges. my current role is account manager and I am also responsible for visiting and keeping in touch with our key clients. With a great base of clients my aim is to get the right product, within the lead time required. This is often a challenge with the always “urgent” email world we live in!
My area of expertise would be the various bag options, lanyards and USBs. That said, working on all kinds of projects requires a good understanding of most promotional products, so I would say I have a good understanding across the board and can offer good advice and solutions to all enquiries.
What is your favourite Kan product?
I would say a good blue tooth speaker or something techy!
The Chimpanzee 02 usb looks amazing when printed full colour, it’s a great way to get your logo out to the client with such a large print area.
Our luxury bags are top end laminates for the high street. There are so many options that you can always make them a great fit for any project. A great quality product for any brand!
What do you like to do outside of work?
I like to think that I’m a sociable guy who enjoys spending time with friends and if the weather is right I’ll make the most of it while it lasts! My colleagues at work would describe me as : Supportive, caring , helpful , jocular, considerate, charismatic 🙂 , prankster and funny.
