Congratulations Ashley on being voted the Harrison Star of the Month,
Could you give us a quick introduction to yourself and your role at Harrison?
I guess that you could call me 'very experienced' in Credit Control - without giving my age away ! - but I have managed several credit departments in a variety of different industries . The role that I have at Harrison allows me to use all this experience that I have gathered over the years - so this is a very good fit for me.
How do you think your colleagues would describe you in 3 words?
Probably .... ' Oh so quiet !'
What was your initial reaction to being voted star of the month?
Really?? I have only been here for a matter of a few months ? ........still, I must have been doing something right.
What would you say is the most interesting aspect of your role?
As this is a newly created role there is a great opportunity to put forward new ideas and support the future of the company, and help grow the business - we have strong growth in turnover and with strong cash collections to support this, these are very exciting times for Harrison Products.
What about outside of work? Could you describe your perfect weekend for us?
I always love to keep busy at weekends and try and do something memorable - a nice trip to the New Forest with my wife Karen with a good hotel and a meal thrown in at our favourite French Restaurant in Brockenhurst on a Saturday night is always very nice... Oh and if West Brom win as well, then that really does make it perfect.
If you were to go for a drink with any 3 people from history, who would they be and why?
Going out for a drink is meant to be fun , so lets keep it light-hearted. I will go for the following sitcom characters - Alan Partridge , David Brent and Peter Kay as himself.
In keeping with the current season, do you have a favourite Christmas song?
That would have to be "Last Christmas" by George Michael - It takes me back to my youth!!
Finally, will West Brom stay up this season?
OUCH - that really is a nasty one! Well they have not won for months so it is not looking good is it?
