This is the strongest team I have ever been apart of and it’s no wonder we are rated ‘excellent’ on Trust Pilot! (Shameless plug)
Below I have stated the name, job title and some interesting facts about the people that make UK Tents great:
Daniel – Managing Director
Dan is the man with the plan. As founder of UK Tents his ambitious and energetic personality makes a great working environment for the whole team. You will usually find Daniel on the phone or searching for the next old school R&B tune to play in the office. In his spare time Daniel is kept busy by his two young kids who also have his energetic personality! His favorite thing to do to relax is play a round of golf but only when the wife lets him of course!
Howard – Sales Manager
Howard is very easy to talk to on the phone and will happily take you through our products to decipher which one best suits your needs. He also takes care of certain things in the background such as collections from our manufacturers so everything can run smoothly. Howard is a keen cycler and regularly cycles to work. He has done many competitions such as marathons and an Iron Man and is training at the moment for the London Marathon. If Howard isn’t training, you will usually find him on a walk with his little dog Charlie.
Paul – Logistics Manager
Paul takes care of the distribution of all of our orders but he is also an expert on parts and marquee building. He deals with all our packaging, labels and couriers, getting your orders out on time. Paul is the joker of the office and never has a serious word to say. He is also quite the chef at home so likes to experiment with lunch ideas in our office toasty maker! In his spare time he loves to cook family meals and relax watching football, mainly Spurs.
Abby – Customer Service Manager
Abby is always here to help, she is at the other end of the phone or email to help with any queries you have. If you need to track your delivery, have any questions about the build of your marquee or need any spare parts, then she is your go to gal. Abby of course has the tidiest desk in the office and loves to be cozy and warm by the heater. In her spare time she loves to plan adventurous holidays with her husband and enjoys walks and cuddles on the sofa with her lovable cocker spaniel Monty.
Anne – Account Manager
Anne is here to keep us all in check! She keeps track of our accounts and sends out all our invoices for us. Anne lives very close to our office so likes to take a brisk stroll in some mornings. She used to live in South Africa so has many amazing stories to tell us during lunch. As a big art fan, in her spare time Anne loves to photograph nature along with reading a good novel to relax.
Gary – Warehouse Manager
Gary is always on the go, you will very rarely see him sat down unless it’s a quick bite to eat from the local burger van! Gary is an expert at building marquees and keeps the warehouse in ship shape condition so everything has its place. Gary is a football fanatic and enjoys going to watch games with his family and friends. However his guilty pleasure is Westlife in concert which is girlfriend ‘forces’ him to go to!
Lewis – Head Delivery Driver
Lewis is the master of making sure your orders get from A to B. When we have large items or items that need to be there next day, these get sent with Lewis. He is also another expert at building marquees and can sometimes visit your home before, during or after purchasing your marquee to help with any queries.
Oli – Warehouse Operations
Oli has only been with us for a little while but he is Paul and Gary’s right hand man! The warehouse has never been so immaculate and he helps us prepare all of your orders ready to ship with the couriers. Oli is studying Computing and IT at university at the moment so as you can imagine he doesn’t have much spare time but loves to hang out with his mates at the weekend.
Wesley – In House Delivery Driver
Wes also delivers your orders to your door. He fills up his van early in the morning and can cover many miles making sure your order is delivered on time. He travels all over the country and will sometimes take his dog with him for company. Wes used to live in Australia so of course loves to surf! Weekends and holidays are spent relaxing with his family and dogs on a beach catching the waves!
Jane – Accountant
Jane does a lot of background work for us. She is extremely organised and makes sure all our filing, invoices and paperwork is safe, secure and in the correct place. Jane also looks into a lot of health and safety for us so our warehouses can run smoothly and safely. In her spare time, Jane spends a lot of time helping her daughter with her dog shelter business. Jane has two dogs herself and she is very passionate about animals.
Carl – Product Quality Control
Carl is quite often out and about on the road helping customers with their marquee builds. He has lots of experience with the technical side of marquees, all the accessories and knows the best ways to build each marquee in any location. When Carl has a day off from building, he usually helps Gary in the warehouse to get everything ready for the next up and coming build. Carl is a big family man and spends his spare time with his new baby boy. He is a Chelsea fan and tries not to miss a game during nappy changes.
Gary – Computer Programmer
Gary is our computer wiz! There is nothing this man can’t do when it comes to computers. Our internal systems that keep track of your orders were all designed by Gary. Any updates or improvements we feel will help us run UK Tents smoother are put to Gary and within a day hes done it. In his spare time he relaxes by playing golf and is a master at mixed martial arts. Gary is not one to be messed with!
