People Spotlight – Meet Business Development Manager, Andy Campbell
Throughout our twenty years in business, peoplevalue has grown from a team of one to a team of over fifty. It’s the people behind the peoplevalue brand who make our business what it is and work hard to help it grow every day. That’s why, in this special blog series, we’re taking a closer look at the names and faces behind our brand. Today, we’re saying hello to Andy Campbell, our Business Development Manager.
Introducing Andy Campbell, Business Development Manager
Andy’s been with peoplevalue for almost 10 years – having joined the team in April 2013. Initially working in the Marketing team, Andy switched roles into a sales capacity – and into his current role as Business Development Manager – in 2017. During this time, he has witnessed and played an incredibly valuable role in peoplevalue’s growth. Some of his most notable achievements include some of the brands we’ve onboarded during his time in Business Development as well as being awarded Employee of the Year in 2018.
In his ten years at peoplevalue, Andy’s been on a journey – not just professionally, but personally too. He’s been engaged, got married, moved house and had two children all while working here. When he’s not working, Andy’s kept busy by his young family, but he still manages to play and watch football and cricket where possible and enjoys running and going to the gym.
What does a typical day look like for you?
A typical day for me will involve presentations, internal and external meetings, phone calls and emails – all with the aim of winning new business. Within sales, there is a lot of variety in a fast-moving environment and you are constantly dealing with people and human interaction which I really enjoy.
How do you like to start your working day?
In general, I like to try and tackle any difficult tasks at the start of the day. So whether I’m in the office or at home, I’ll log on, answer anything urgent on email/teams and then get cracking which helps set the tone for the day ahead.
How did you get into your current job role?
I started off working in the marketing side of things at peoplevalue, but an opportunity came up to switch roles into a sales capacity which I took up and haven’t looked back since really.
What is your favourite thing about working at peoplevalue?
Our culture and the people are stand out. We’ve always had a good culture and good people that at the heart of the business and it’s still there today. I think you only have to look at how long many of our current team have been within the business to see people like working at peoplevalue and we have something special here.
What one word would you use to describe peoplevalue’s culture?
Welcoming – whether you’re walking through the door on your first day or your 3652nd there is always a welcoming feeling that leaves you feeling you are in a positive environment with a sense of purpose.
What do you most enjoy about your job?
Relationships – Meeting and interacting with lots of different people is something I’ve always enjoyed. I also enjoy the variety in my job from visiting new places to the different tasks involved in the sales process – initial conversations and questions to pitching and closing deals.
What is your favourite quote?
“Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.” Theodore Roosevelt.
My dad wrote this on my bedroom wall when I was a teenager, and it’s something that boils down to don’t be afraid to put yourself out there – win or lose. As I’ve gotten older it’s given me the inspiration to try and do things outside of my comfort zone – both professionally and personally.
What is your favourite memory from working at peoplevalue so far?
As you would imagine, there’s a lot I’ve amassed in nearly a decade at the company but I think two that stand out are the office refurbishment – going from what was a fairly non-descript and normal office space to a bright, exciting and colourful workspace and the launching of our corporate values. There’s also been plenty on the social side too including some classic Christmas parties involving karaoke and memorable fancy dress.
Are there any projects you’ve worked on that you’re particularly proud of?
Winning a new client in a competitive bid and hearing success stories around the client and their employees getting real value from what we do makes me proud. In a more general sense, seeing our client list and knowing that I’ve contributed to growing that also gives me a great sense of personal pride.
