Jonathan Marsden, Sales Director
What do you do for us?
I lead all things sales driven within the business. Whether its exciting meetings with clients, designing solutions and proposals, to onsite demonstrations, presenting what we believe to be the best solutions for our clients.
What did you do before you joined us?
I skipped the standard University route and instead at 16 I set up my first website and graphic design business. I then went on to create a family run communications business with my father David, which was acquired in 2008. However we continued to be board directors of a £35 million turnover group of companies; living a much more corporate life, in contrast to the family run business. Many important lessons were learned on the right things to do, and the not so right things that big corporates do, these have been vital to our success in The Technology Group.
What do you like about The Technology Group?:
We genuinely are experts at what we do. We hopefully are that ideal mix, the right size to be capable to provide the most sophisticated solution, yet small enough to provide the level of customer service, account management and flexibility usually associated with a small business.
Describe your personality in three words?:
Dedicated, Passionate, Articulate
Top three things you love:
Crispy bacon sandwich on a cold morning, Getting to the summit of a mountain and Macy (My Border Terrier)
Adventure! Walking some of the world’s best wonders, and highest mountains, I love nothing more than occasionally turning that technology off and living…. Perhaps with a Mojito or Brooklyn Beer at the end! I enjoy taking on new adventures, last year I raised money for Leeds Mencap by completing a trek across the Sahara Desert!
