My first job at Holland & Barrett was as a store associate… eight years and eight promotions later, I’m now Area Manager for South London. That’s 22 stores that I’m responsible for. And I love it.
I’m a big believer in giving my store managers opportunities to grow. It gives me a huge buzz to see them progress and fulfill their potential. But there’s still a lot for me to achieve as well.
I’ve set my sights on becoming International Development Director by 2019. That’ll give me responsibility for 264 stores outside the UK – and a position on the board too. That’s my three year plan.
