Sharon...General Manager of Electroparts

I joined Electroparts last year and have spent these 4 months really getting to know our people, customers, procedures and products. I have also spent time looking at new marketing tools, brochures, value stream mapping and recruitment. Our recent addition is our Marketing Assistant, Ellie who we found through the Government Kickstart scheme. It’s a great place to work and I have had a warm welcome and plenty of help along the way. There is still much more to learn to fully establish myself into the General Managers role, but I must be a keeper because I now have my uniform.

I have over 30 years’ experience in the Aerospace fastener industry, a couple of years of experience in the Engineering sector offering water jet cutting services & manufacturing of sealing solutions.  Now working for an SME Electronic Manufacturing company who are a leading technical sub-contractor for small and medium batch electronics; including PCB assembly solutions, cable & wiring assemblies, full turnkey and box build assemblies. Throughout my working life of Sales Management and business improvement;  I have always made sure our customers are happy and helped to grow businesses by developing teams, improving processes and providing excellent customer relationship management.

My family and friends are my everything.  I have been married for 21 years, have 2 boys aged 22 and 20 who of course still live at home but at least I have a plumber and a joiner! Think I must treat them too well because their girlfriends like to spend most of their time with us too. For 5 years we have shared a beautiful dog Kai, a Yorkypom and my eldest rocked up 3 months ago with a mini sausage dog, Rico.  It’s a very busy house, but just how I like it.

I love a walk, a good night out, a curry, prosecco and anything pink.
