New Hires

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!


Ben Smith

Quote & Configuration Specialist 

Before I started at Arrow ECS I was at college where I studied law, psychology, philosophy and ethics. I also worked part-time at a fast food restaurant for a year. I often play sports including football (I support Leeds United) and basketball. I enjoy working for Arrow because I love technology and everything tech based. Arrow is a great place to work and I like the diversity of opportunities that Arrow presents.


Loves... In my spare time I like to play football, go to the cinema, walking and hanging out with my friends. My passions are football, films, games and comedy.

Callum Laing

Renewals Sales Specialist

Before joining Arrow I worked in Renewals/Customer Services for an Insurance company. Prior to that I was in Horse Racing so it’s a nice change of pace being apart from Arrow, working in a comfortable office environment. I joined Arrow at the beginning of August and have thoroughly enjoyed my time here to date, being part of the Renewals Sales team with a great crowd of people around me. 


Loves... My spare time consists of Sports; rugby, athletics and powerlifting are my absolute passions in life (also food, can’t get enough food!!). I’ve also just taken up Agility and Cani-Cross with my dogs (Border Collies and a Siberian Husky) which is fantastic exercise!


Christopher Newnes

Technical Support Assistant 

Before joining Arrow, I worked in financial services for 3 years in Brighton as well as in Newmarket. I have been at Arrow for about three weeks now working in Support and I have really enjoyed my time here already, largely down to the friendly and helpful nature of my colleagues. One of the main reasons I joined Arrow was due to the supportive and employee focused culture that exists within the business, helping not only personal development but also progression within the company.


Loves... In my spare time I regularly go out and keep busy with my mates and girlfriend. Also, and most importantly of course, I’m a mad football fan. I watch, play and read about it every day. I also cycle and go to the gym regularly and I like to fill my time with lots of festivals, holidays, meals and cinema.


Emma Doyley

IT Systems Administrator

Before joining Arrow I worked at a small integrated drug discovery company maintaining their IT systems and providing user support. Prior to that I spent four years studying Forensic Computing at DeMontfort University in Leicester. Working part-time at Leicester Tigers whilst I studied meant that I got paid to watch a game I love …rugby.

I’ve been at Arrow just over a month now and am really enjoying myself and am looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead.


Loves… Drag racing (I spend a lot of weekends at various drag strips pit crewing for Captain Caveman Racing), rugby, llamas and my 3 week old nephew :-)


Hayley Wisson

Customer Service Agent

I have just recently joined Arrow a couple of weeks ago and everyone has been so welcoming, it's very friendly environment. 

I am very much looking forward to learning and progressing in my job in Customer Service in the Training DCS Team where I will be providing support to customers and Internal Account Managers in the day to day running of the accounts, processing/progressing orders and working closely with the Education team. 

Before moving over to Arrow I worked at a company that specialises in Care Homes and I worked in the Purchasing department checking Monthly budgets to making sure that they had everything they needed in the homes.

I have always worked in an office environment since I have left school and am very much looking forward to settling in at Arrow and progressing my skills within the company. 


Loves… Spending time with my loved ones, I try to go the gym in my spare time, partying and prosecco! I am a friendly, bubbly person, love to meet new people and am always welcoming. I also love to match my hair colour to my outfits. Typical girl, love to experiment on different hair colours. I am also a massive cat lover, I have one cat called Oscar. 


Jade Cole

Marketing Administrator

I started working for Arrow at the end of July – a week after graduating from the University of Sheffield with a degree in English Language and Literature. I love being outdoors and enjoyed rock-climbing at uni. I’m also planning on running the Reading Half Marathon in March.

I’ve really enjoyed my first few months with Arrow and am looking forward to my future here.


Loves… Running, skiing, travel and literature. 


Megan Hey

Purchasing Administrator

I joined Arrow a couple of weeks ago and I am based in Newmarket, I'm pleased to say that I am thoroughly enjoying my experience so far. Everyone has been very warm and welcoming and really made me feel part of the team. 

I have always had an interest in IT and prior to working for Arrow I have worked for a telesales company and a virtual receptionist company, which although I found enjoyable I felt they did not challenge me enough. 


Loves... I particularly enjoy performing arts and have belonged to several clubs and performed all over the county, including some big theatres in London and Oxford. I was also in the Guinness Book of World Records for belonging to the largest choir. I enjoy playing netball and basketball and can sometimes get over competitive. I also like to read lots of books and  am (attempting) to write my own short stories and fiction books. However, saying all of this, my favourite thing to do is spend time with my fiancé and going out with friends/family. I am very happy with my start at Arrow and I am looking forward to see what the future brings. 

Norina Corbu

Purchasing Administrator

I am from Romania and moved to the UK a year ago (still working on my accent :-). I joined Arrow this July and I’m happy to say I really enjoy my job and the environment I work in. 

I have a Masters in Management and Diploma in Sports Nutrition. 


Loves... In my spare time, I enjoy reading psychology and personal development books as-well as going to the gym and cooking healthy delicious foods. Travelling is my passion and I try to take advantage of every opportunity to meet new people and see interesting places. 

Sam Matthews

Operations Support Administrator – Newmarket

Previous to joining arrow I was doing my GCSE’s. While doing my GCSE’s I noticed that there was an apprenticeship vacancy and I straight away went for it and here I am now. In my free time I play football on weekends, go out with friends and watch mainly nothing on TV and the internet. Also, although I don’t mention it to many I’m a bit of a geek and love all of Marvel. During my first month here at Arrow, I have met some of the nicest people and have entered one of the most friendly offices I could have imagined and am happy with how everything is going.


Loves… Sports, films, seeing friends and most of all eating.

Sam Steer

Accounts Payable Assistant

I’m delighted to have joined Arrow ECS in the Accounts Payable Department, having previously worked for an IT services specialising in consumer credit for the last three years. I’m also currently studying for my ACCA qualification. I’ve only been at Arrow for the past few weeks but everyone seems very friendly and I’m looking forward to working with you all.


Loves... Beer, football, cricket and whiskey sours


Tracey Purvis

Marketing Finance Administrator

Having been made redundant after 8 years working at a Tax Advisors in Harrogate, I started working at Arrow in August 2016. I can honestly say this is the friendliest team I have ever worked with.

I have a rescue Lurcher who when not been lazy is digging up the carpet!


Loves... Reading, sunshine, walking the dog and holidays in Spain to see friends, eat Tapas and drink Vodka - no small measures there :-)
