Do you have any interests outside of work that you don't mind sharing with us? - "Football all the way. I’m a Manchester United fan but I also enjoy going to watch my local team,  Daventry Town."

However, being at the awards ceremony in London when VBH won Component Supplier of Year at the G18 Awards has to be right up there. Being so short sometimes has advantages and sometimes not. In this case not as I couldn't be seen in the official photo on the night as I was totally obscured by my taller team mates. But I was there!"

Do you have any interests outside of work that you don't mind sharing with us? - "I’m an animal lover and support many charities. My 3 dogs are a total joy; a proper mix up of breeds.

Q & A with Gareth (AKA The Hardware Hero, AKA The Northern Powerhouse):

When did you join VBH? - "I joined VBH in December 2018. A nice Christmans present!"

How long have you been in our industry? - "I originally joined in 2006. As with many, I slipped into the industry with no real plans to stay. However, the calibre of the people in the industry, combined with the breadth of products available kind of got me hooked.  I’m glad I made the decision to dive in as I think as an industry we have a lot to be proud of and we should celebrate that."

What do you consider to be your main strength? - I'd like to think that people would say 'Approachable and honest with a good dash of humour thrown into the mix.' If they said that I would whole heartedly agree with them."  

What is, or has been, your favourite product? - "I think our range of greenteQ Lifestyle products is the best in the industry. Clearspan bi-fold gear, Aspire handles and our Clearlift lift and slide hardware continues to innovate and give customers a real choice."

What is your most memorable moment since joining VBH? - "My first car trip down to the head office in Gillingham with my gaffer, Adrian Gale.  I instantly knew I had made the right choice in joining VBH. This was confirmed after meeting the team in Gillingham and my external colleagues at my first sales meeting.  You could not ask for a better bunch of people.  I believe that is the strength of our business – The Team!"

Do you have any interests outside of work that you don't mind sharing with us? - "I love spending time with my two children and my wonderful, and very patient, girlfriend. I really enjoy eating out. Yes, a nice meal and a drop of wine. I keep my reflexes highly tuned by playing Xbox and I am a massive fan of The Mighty Clarets of Burnley Football Club. Live music and comedy are also high up in my list. This is something that I’d like to do more of in the coming years."

Q & A with Earl:

When did you join VBH? - "I joined VBH in October 2020"

Having said that I enjoy getting away within the UK, too. Nearer to home I love spending time with my family and pottering in my little garden.  I'm a music fan, particularly soul and Frank Sinatra. I like watching boxing, and also like the 'odd' visit to the pub, but the two aren't related!"
