1. How long have you worked at and what made you dive into the world of Digital and Data?

I have worked at for over 19 years. I started in the year 2000 when we were called AskAlix. I was originally employed as a Data Entry Assistant, and I worked my way up to my current role as Business Intelligence Manager. It wasn’t my original career plan, but I loved the people I worked with and became really passionate about Data Analysis and how it can be used to help individuals and the company achieve their goals, so I stayed.

2. What is your favourite aspect of working at

It is definitely the people, everyone really supports each other, and we are like one big family. I would also say that variety plays a big part too; no two days are the same, and I am continually challenged in my role. I am ambitious to succeed, and has always given me the opportunities and tools I need to further my career.

3. Tell us something random/interesting about yourself? What makes you tick?

It is my family that makes me tick (I have an amazing wife and two beautiful daughters). I always want to do them proud. I am also an avid runner and have run dozens of Half Marathons, and 6 full Marathons. Raising money for local causes drives me on to continue training and helps me through tough times in a race – as I know I am doing something to help other people at the same time.

4. Favourite film and song?

Please can I have two of each? I would say ‘Slide Away’ by Oasis and ’99 Red Balloons’ by Nena. Films?  – I would say ‘Trainspotting’ and ‘The Breakfast Club’.

5. Name something on your bucket list?

I would absolutely love to run the New York Marathon one day, that would be fantastic.

Dave ran the Great North Run on Sunday achieving a fantastic time of sub 1 hour 30 minutes, you can still sponsor him over on his Just Giving page
