Senior Credit Controller

Another long term member of staff who has been with us since 2003. Dot started out as a Payroll / Secretarial and Credit Control Assistant (we were much smaller back then). Over the years she has worked her way up to become Senior Credit Controller which she loves with a passion. Dot believes her telephone manner, negotiation skills and vast client knowledge, has helped develop and maintain customer relationships. She also really enjoys the variety of personal contact and communication with our customers on a daily basis. When it comes to non-payment of invoices, however, there is not a single excuse that she hasn't heard before!! The dog ate my homework kind of stuff, so it brings an enormous amount of satisfaction when a payment of a long overdue invoice comes in!​
