In our Team of the Month section, we highlight some of the important faces from across the industry who perhaps aren’t always in the public eye. This month, it’s VIP Computers’ indie retail sales team…
What’s been your biggest success over the past 12 months?
Building VIP Club into a community for independent resellers, with over 400 members and growing.
What’s the best part of working in your team?
Seeing the team progress through the VIP Apprentice Scheme into knowledgeable account managers. Plus, the 17 to 18 year banter that these guys have between them is unreal.
What’s the hardest part of working in the UK technology industry?
Keeping up to date on the latest upcoming tech is a challenge. We’ve got to keep a keen eye on what’s happening in the market so we can tell our customers.
What’s the funniest or most memorable memory of working in your team?
Thomas Rudge beating VIP UK MD Rich Marsden at our annual FIFA tournament. We also have some funny vendor call-out days that have involved space hoppers, pantomime horse racing
Who makes the best cuppa?
Stuart makes a cracking cup of coffee – the others don’t drink tea or coffee!
