Thank you Seán for your time. Can you tell us a bit more about yourself?
I grew up in retail, firstly helping in my Grandmothers hardware shop as a child and later in my Mum’s deli. Most of my background since then has been in sales and customer service and all the skills I learned in this area have been invaluable to me since I started working for Neylons in September 2020.

Loads of people, my parents, my family, and friends.

I help Neylons keep current clients, and also get new ones.
- What is your proudest moment at Neylons?
Graduating from the Academy.
- What do you find the most challenging in your role?
Time management can be an issue, especially considering how busy we all are.
- What have you gained from working at Neylons?
Loads. I’m lucky that all the people I engage with share their time and their knowledge without complaint.
- What’s the best advice you can give to someone who just started their career?
Work hard and if you ever feel you are being taken for granted, leave.

Nothing interesting! I can play the trumpet!

Yes, I do! I have a recipe for monkfish wrapped in bacon that I love.

I don’t think I’ll make it as a professional rugby player at my age, so now I’d like to be a professional golfer!
