When did you join the team?

I joined team Sontay on 15th January 2024

What is your 'Sontay moment'? 

My Sontay moment would be going out for dinner with my Sales Director, the MD and the Chairman on my second day at the office. It displayed what a tightknit and inclusive company Sontay is.  

What is your favourite part of being at Sontay?

The family community, everyone is happy to help and collaborate to improve each other and the business. 

My inspirations?

My grandfather - his positive outlook, hardworking open mindset and motto - 'Go For It' 

Myself in 5 years' time - An idea taken from Matthew McConaughey 'So you see every day, every week, every month and every year of my life, my hero's always 5 years away. I'm never gonna be my hero'. - I look up to my future self, this means I am always looking for ways to make my future self prouder and more fulfilled in life. 

What do you do outside of Sontay?

  • I love working out at the gym, attending any possible evening training in a variety of ways. I play 6 a side football on Wednesdays with my close friends. 
  • I attend Buddhist meditation classes for my mindfulness. 
  • I love a couple of drinks with my friends followed by a cosy Sunday evening with my family and dog called Zuko.
