Why did you become an entrepreneur? Entrepreneurship is something that I have been raised in and therefore for me I believe it is a way of life. I believe that entrepreneurship is a vehicle that a person can use to achieve their dreams and goals and whilst most times it is very hard work it is also very rewarding.
How have you come to chose your line of business?
After working in the family business for a number of years I decided to branch out on my own and whilst part of our company is still in the same market sector, that of automotive parts, we have been innovative in our approach to the sector in a different way, our company offers a one stop shop for automotive glass. The other sector of the company is very very different. We work in the Occupational Health and Safety sector, we are importers and distributors of Personal Protective Equipment, Barrie systems etc. The reason that I chose this line was because after having researched the market in 2004 I realized the lack of awareness, this is when I started my studies which eventually lead me to wanting to work within this sector.
Where did you go on your last holiday?
In Belgium, although this holiday was not a typical one as I attended the Junior Chamber International World Congress, which is a week packed with meetings, general assemblies, trainings and parties, meeting new people from all around the world is something that I enjoy. As for the last relaxing holiday was in Valencia -Spain
What is your earliest memory?
This is a tough one! My earliest memory would be running around with my parents in the kitchen playing.
If you could chose to be someone famous who would you be?
I think that it would have to be Richard Branson from Virgin as his story is something that moves me, I admire his tenacity and the fact that he believes in people without putting them into boxes. Also his concept of social enterprise is something that I aspire to be able to implement in our company and hopefully within our community
