Last month we introduced our Managing Director and all round cool cat Nathan in our Meet the Team series. This month, it’s the turn of sales and marketing representative, Josh.
Tell us a little bit about you.
I joined the Imageco team in January 2016. I still enjoy it like it’s my first day! My role is a good balance of sales and project management. The role is constantly varied.
Prior to Imageco I worked as a freelance graphic installer. In a past life before that, I was in recruitment for a number of years.
What’s the coolest thing you’re working on right now?
I have worked on a number of cool projects with the team, but I recently completed a large project in a school that was very rewarding.
I was involved in everything from the survey to the design and install. The biggest challenge was that it had to completed within 6 days from the initial contact! It was very tiring working over the weekend and I had to sacrifice a few evenings too. But to have it completed the day before open evening for the new year 6 pupils and their parents was an enormous win!
What’s the best thing about being in the Imageco sales team?
The sales team is a great place to be in Imageco! We are a very tight-knit bunch and only squabble over whose round it is to make coffee. It’s a very relaxed atmosphere, often broken up with a few jokes and a bit of music. We all work very hard and it shows with the work Imageco produce!
Give us one big change you can see coming in the industry in the next year.
I think the architectural vinyl is fantastic. It’s a great product that has the potential to save clients bags of money and huge amounts of time on rip-outs and replacements. It’s doing the rounds in large hotel chains at the moment. I expect this to be a much more frequently used product in the not-too-distant future!
Describe your job in 3 words.
Exciting, varied, and on some occasions bizarre.
Who would you like to swap places with for the day?
It would be pretty awesome to be Elon Musk for the day, just to see how he sees the world and enjoy the riches! But, you could add Neil deGrasse Tyson, David Attenborough and Daryl Powell to that list. They are all people I admire!
What did you want to grow up to be when you were young?
I wanted to be a veterinarian for the longest time. I’m still pretty animal-obsessed!
What’s your go-to drink at the pub?
Guinness is my first port of call, but as the night grows old I will enjoy a rum.
If you could go anywhere in the world, right now, where would it be and why?
There are a lot of places on the holiday destination list at present, but I am very keen to go to Canada and maybe travel down into North America.
Give us your best piece of advice.
“Be good.” Whether it is to others or at work, it’s a pretty obvious piece of advice when you think about it.
