Introducing Kerri Dukes, Customer Services Manager
Kerri is our Customer Services Manager. She works closely with the rest of the Customer Services, Account Management and Operations team to assist and offer support to our customers and ensure they are satisfied with our services.
Following a brief career in housekeeping, waitressing and bar management at a small village pub and qualifying as a PT, working with David Lloyd clubs, Kerri applied for her role at peoplevalue in June 2018. She has been a valuable part of our team ever since, progressing from Customer Services Advisor to Customer Service’s Manager in 2021, which she says is her most notable peoplevalue achievement.
When she’s not busy working, Kerri enjoys exercising, whether that’s going to the gym or enjoying a nice 26-mile walk outside. She also loves spending time with her family.
