Karl says:

"There are no two days the same in my role! Helping customers and trouble-shooting is one of my favourite parts of my job, and I consider my speciality to be lighting and technical support.
One of my biggest achievements was bringing Elfa Distrelec on-board as a Distributor last year.
I recently spent several months working as part of a large interdepartmental and multi-disciplinary team on a major tender, which I thoroughly enjoyed as it put my knowledge and skillset to excellent use, as well as allowing me to gain new skills."
