Employee Focus: Laura Wallace, Account Manager

  • What is your name?

Laura Wallace

  • What is your working background before AAG?

Before working at AAG I worked for Sheffield Teaching Hospitals in their IT Department (not in a technical role I would like to add!)

  • What is your position at AAG?

I am an Account Manager at AAG and get to work with lots of our lovely customers.

  • How long have you been at AAG? And can you tell us some of the experiences throughout this journey?

I started working at AAG in August 2016 so coming up to 2 years now. When I first started I was more focused on New Business with a little bit of Account Management on the side. I moved into a full Account Management role in around April 2017, it definitely is not without its’ challenges but I do really enjoy it and find it suits my personality much better than New Business ever did! I am just not cut out to deal with the harsh rejection of New Business.

  • What are your hobbies/ what do you enjoy doing in your free time?

I don’t really have any hobbies, but I do enjoy going walking in the countryside with my other half. Spending time with my family and friends is also very important me. I also like to enjoy a few glasses of prosecco on the weekend!

  • What is the most interesting thing about you?

I am not sure that it is interesting but I did recently get a tattoo of my nickname during a recent girls weekend away (it has now faded and it did seem like a good idea at the time!)

  • What is your proudest moment to date?

My proudest moment to date definitely has to be buying my house with my other half when we were 23.

  • If you could only have one meal for the rest of your life what would it be?

I don’t think I can pick just one, so probably anything Italian as that is my favourite!

  • What is your favourite sport? And why?

Definitely not a sport person at all – sorry!

  • Is there anything we haven’t covered that we should know about you?

Not really, I think that is about everything!
