Ben, our Senior Sales Executive, has always lived in the North East and certainly doesn’t plan on leaving. He’s been a part of the team here at First Choice Labels for three years this August.

Day to day he deals with clients from a multitude of different sectors, offering advice and guidance to help them find the best labelling solution for their business.

Ben said: “No two days are the same here at First Choice; one day I’ll be working with someone that is independent and runs a market stall and the next I’ll be tendering for a multi-national company!”

Service never comes without a smile where Ben is concerned and he makes it his goal to ensure that whether his clients are big or small, they are all receiving the exact same level of service.

Let’s get to know Ben a bit better…

Describe yourself in three words

Direct, committed and customer orientated.

What do you like best about the North East?

The opportunities in Teesside and the wider region are endless, it’s a great place to be.

Where is your favourite spot in the region?

IKEA in Gateshead – their meatballs are the best I’ve ever tasted!

What’s something about you that not many people know?

I don’t know the full lyrics to the Happy Birthday song (I just mumble until hip hip hooray…)

Do you prefer tea or coffee?

Neither, I’m quite happy with a bottle of chilled water.

How do you unwind outside of work?

I love spending time with the better half and kids, wouldn’t call it unwinding though!
