Managing DirectorHere from the beginning! "I’m a bit of an adrenaline junkie and petrol head. I love fast motorcycles and cars, and especially love taking either or both to the Nurburgring where my brother lives. I also like to keep fit which includes going to the gym four times a week, cycling and healthy eating. But best of all I like spending time with my two adorable granddaughters. I don’t get a massive amount of leisure time as this business demands a fair amount of commitment".
Head of Support and Business Development"I come from a very horsey family, with my family still owning a large riding school and livery yard in Essex. As a child, I spent most weekends and holidays riding and playing ponies and then moved on to dabbling in showjumping and eventing. Since moving to Norfolk and subsequently joining Aviform in 2007, I am either at my desk or looking very nervous, but determined, competing Peter Pan my 22 year old KWPN at Prix St George."
Head of Operations"I joined Aviform in 2010 as Head Of Operations, previously having careers at different management roles. I have a passion for stock management and procurement, and a desire to achieve all tasks! Away from work I am a life long suffering Norwich City Football supporter, and enjoy watching as many home games as possible! I love spending quality time with my wife and young family (when not working!)"
Trade Sales, Compliance & Equine Nutritional Adviser"I joined Aviform in 2006 and my job is quite varied. I especially love being able to talk to our customers and give advice on our supplements, whether it's for equines, dogs or avian: it is always great to hear their success stories as a result. I have, on and off, around 40 years experience with horses and dogs, and throughout my childhood my Mother kept and bred Budgerigars. I currently own two horses, a pony, three dogs and a tortoise. When I was younger I competed and later on supported my daughter with her riding through Pony Club, BYRDS and British Dressage, whilst still enjoying riding at a non-competitive level. I am quite busy dealing with our trade customers within the British Isles as well as Internationally, and have recently also taken on the role of Compliance to keep everything in order for our continuing programme of good practice and accreditation."
Retail Sales"I joined Aviform part-time in November 1991, in the production & packing department. After a few years I went full-time in the office. When not at work I enjoy spending time with my family and country sports."
