Arrow UK & Ireland is a big organisation and it can be difficult to keep track of who’s who. We like to introduce any new employees to the business here, to give you a real snippet of who the new folks are so they’re not just another name joining the company.
Welcome to Arrow!
Internal Business Development Manager - Cloud
I studied Sport Management at Buckinghamshire New University from 2010-2013.
I started working at Arrow in October 2014 through the Graduate Sales Agency Pareto Law. Initially I worked as an Internal Sales Executive on the Lenovo Servers and Storage Team and after 15 months I moved into a BDM role on the Lenovo and Fujitsu Servers and Storage Team. As of July 1st 2016 I moved into the Cloud Team focusing on Office 365 and Intermedia.
I’m very happy to be a part of the Cloud Team and I’m sure great things lie ahead!
Loves… In my spare time I play a multitude of sports, but I will always be a rugby player first and foremost. Life’s too short not to have a beer whenever the chance arises.
Receptionist - London
Before joining Arrow I worked in the encoding and graphics department of a telecommunications company. I have always had a keen interest in design, marketing and anything tech - some have said I'm a secret nerd. I have been at Arrow for the last few months now working on Reception and I take great pleasure in saying Arrow is one of the friendliest companies I have ever worked at. Arrow is clearly supportive and focused on employee progress and development.
In my spare time at the moment I am working on building my graphic portfolio website and going out with my friends.
Loves… Exercising, festivals, partying and prosecco!
Renewals Sales Specialist
I am a Renewals Sales Specialist based in Newmarket and I joined Arrow a month ago. I have previously worked for Computerlinks UK and Unipalm years ago as an Account Manager and therefore although I am new to Arrow, I am pleased there are many familiar faces around the office. I am working part time Wednesday to Friday and things are beginning to sink in!
I love to travel and have spent quite a few years living and working in different countries, but now have decided it is time to settle with my family back in the UK.
Loves... I enjoy socialising and exercising and am currently training to do the ‘Shine Night Walk’ in London in September…. although I think I prefer watching sport more than actually doing it! (I live in a house with all boys so have become a lover of everything sport related including football, rugby, boxing, athletics and golf. I don’t do Grand Prix though…….)
I have been with Arrow now just over a month and I am loving it! I have a great team and everyone in my office is so lovely and friendly. I’m really looking forward to my future with Arrow. Last year I did a skydive for Cancer Research last year with friends and raised just over £800.
Loves… I’m a part time model and recently got to the finals for Miss Cambridgeshire. I have recently gotten into acting as well, featuring in an action film which will be released this November :-)
Business Development Manager
Before moving over to Arrow I worked at a small company selling OCR solutions into the Accounting market. I would conduct cold calls, conferences and provide webinars of the software. Before that I used to work at Softcat and that is mainly where I got my Channel experience and knowledge of the IT world. I have been at Arrow now for two months looking after Kaspersky and Forcepoint and I’m really enjoying the challenges so far and look forward to more moving forward.
Loves... In my spare time I love football, going to the gym, eating and spending time with my girlfriend and our two cats.
24/7 Network & Security Support Engineer
I joined the NOC team just over two months ago now and the time has flown by. Everyone has been so welcoming and I am very excited to carry on learning and progressing in my job.
After leaving Leeds Uni in 2014, I took a year out working at my old school for a term and then heading off to travel around Australia and New Zealand for 4 months.
Loves… Drums, water sports, cinema and spending as much time as possible up at the North Norfolk coast.
EMEA IT SQA Lead - Business Systems
I have joined Arrow with 15+ years of experience in Test Management & QA Leadership across banking, financial services and insurance sectors and my previous role was at Barclays Bank as Programme Test Manager.
With a great vigour of QA/Testing, have led delivery of successful projects with high quality in past and expecting to bring similar success now at Arrow.
Being a Certified Scrum Master (CSM), I always tend to focus on value, automation and analytics whilst embracing change quickly and being agile.
My colleagues and Leadership team at Arrow EMEA IT Business Systems are fantastic, warm and welcoming. I am very happy to be part of this great team.
Loves... Playing outdoor games, trekking, exploring new places and socialising with friends.
Quote and Configuration Specialist
I started working for Arrow in May and I’m based in Theale with the Quote and Configuration Team. Prior to this, I studied Geography at the University of Northampton for 3 years, gaining a 2:1 – basically what you get with a 50/50 balance of studying… and partying.
Normally, people will be like “Didn’t you do volcanoes? Why are you working with computers?”. Well... I didn’t actually do volcanoes – I mean, my dissertation was based on the community of several pubs within the town of Newbury. Naturally my research was therefore conducted within pubs too, potentially a first for a dissertation! I did also go to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon for a roadtrip with the University. Not much else in my years of learning really excels that level of enjoyment!
How have I ended up at Arrow? Well it seemed a good fit, and my degree is surprisingly used to an extent. Ultimately, I’ve had a good first two months here so I’m happy with my decision.
Loves... Football, karting, gigs, travelling, playing on the ol’ guitar, and a little bit of croquet in the sun goes down very well.
