Nick Ashmore Senior Account Manager at Eight Plus expert in Account managment, scheduling and buying

Senior Account Manager

I live in the heart of Charnwood with my partner Sarah and our diabetic ginger cat, Stanley Pablo.

Between us, we have four wonderful children who have all flown the nest but do insist on coming back regularly to empty the fridge and snack drawer (crisps and chocolate hiding place) of their contents.

 

After restocking the fridge and snack draw, we enjoy trips to the theatre, and walking around the local area, but only with the promise of a cream tea or a pint at the end of it.

 

I’m just a typical bloke really, I love my Triumph motorcycle, classic cars, watching Leicester Tigers, cooking and period dramas!!

My standout skills stem from my positivity and calmness under pressure which allows me to excel at managing complex schedules and finding solutions to get the best results. It also helps me forge long-lasting relationships with suppliers and customers across UK and Europe.
