We've teamed up with Kerry Foods, to provide the best cocktail solutions for all occasions.
We're here to mix things up...
I have spent the last eighteen years working in the UK drinks industry, I’ve been very lucky to be employed by some fantastic businesses and had the great pleasure of meeting and working with, some amazing people. We started the Little Mixers to bring the best of everything we had learned over our many years into one company, and then to focus that experience and knowledge on providing our customers with the highest quality products at great value…..No Black Magic involved 😊
I've been in the drinks business over 30 years. Most say, "How"? It's pretty simple really. I love the industry, the people and the brands. Having taken on new challenges throughout my career, this is the next step in bringing something new and exciting to the market. We have a great team, who are full of energy, and will bring our brands to life.
I started my first role as a Business Development Manager for a media company, working with clients such as Adobe and Capital Radio. In 2001, I moved into the drinks industry, working for Greene King. After a few years, I then moved to Matthew Clark in the regional sales team. Once the Catalyst Brands concept had been announced, I decided this was my next exciting chapter. Initially working in the RTM team, I then moved into managed retail, as an Account Director. In this role, I managed the channel and the team within it. During this time, we were awarded the TGI Fridays Drink Supplier of the Year award, and the Innovation Supplier of the Year award, from Stonegate. I'm pretty consistent, in that all I want to do, is to over deliver for our Customers and our Brands.
Outside work, I spend quality time with my 3 children, play the piano and saxophone, and love cooking Indian and Italian food.
I began my sales career as a Student Brand Manager in Liverpool, whilst I was studying for my degree. After I graduated, I joined PepsiCo, and became a Sales Development Representative. Following this great training, I then moved to Catalyst Brands. Within 2 years, I had made the progression to National Account Manager.
In my spare time, I love travelling, dancing, and spending time outdoors (particularly festivals!). I also work with the homeless, on an appeal called the Rucksack challenge, providing equipment to help during the winter months.
