Mike

Territory Manager – North West

What's your career to date?

After successfully completing my HND in farm management the first part of my career I spent working on farms and later becoming a herd manager on a large dairy unit in Cheshire. I moved on to selling dairy feed and advising farmers on dairy nutrition and dairy management which later incorporated selling animal health products. I have worked for NVS since 2004 as Territory Manager for the North West.

What is most important to you in your job?

Supporting my customers where needed and creating lasting and meaningful customer relationships, with both long term and new clients, with support for their business needs and growth.

What’s the best thing about working in the veterinary industry?

Working in the veterinary industry is a natural progression from my past careers of looking after and caring for animals. It is a very social industry and I have developed many good friends with customers, colleagues and even my competitors.

How do you relax?

I enjoy family life, even more so now with our first grandchild. We also have a demanding greedy, chocolate Labrador called Pippa, that keeps me out and about. I also enjoy Motorsport and any international rugby or football match

What’s the best thing about working for National Veterinary Services?

I enjoy my job at NVS, as every day is different, meeting new people and working alongside my customers and our great team at NVS to meet the demands of the veterinary industry challenges.

What accomplishment are you most proud of?

I won Crufts in the early days of agility, with my rescued dog, Britt. More recently, winning Territory Manager of the Year must be it.
