Employee's Profile: Richard Beckett
Richard Beckett is Regional Director of Europe and works in the GWS UK office.
1. Why do you love your job?
My job has a great variety of aspects to it, allowing me to develop strategies and new sales channels almost every week. With the new products coming on board as well, new markets have to be opened up which just adds to the enjoyment.
2. What do you think about working at GWS?
Working for GWS is very rewarding as we are still quite the “New Boys on the Block”, but have now secured some of the biggest companies to partner. It is great to be known as the highest quality supplier as all the feedback we get throughout Europe is always very positive.
3. What are your hobbies? Or any other things you like to do after work.
I play golf (very badly), go walking in the Lake District, love listening to all genres of music and enjoy the London Theatre West End, where I try to go see plays a few times a year.
4. Anything else you want to add?
One of the great aspects of working for GWS is the team we have. Throughout Europe the people are highly motivated and very friendly, which makes my job even more enjoyable, so a big thanks to everyone!
