Meet the team – Karl Moulton Key Account & Senior Business Development Manager
Tell us how you ended up at Spitfire?
Following the completion of my degree in Biological Medicinal Chemistry (yeah, it’s quite a left field turn into IT & Telecoms) I worked in America with underprivileged Children and Adults with learning difficulties. When I moved back to the UK I wanted to find a career in sales and IT/Telecoms, which felt like the right industry with my logical reasoning background and with how big the reach of the industry is. I spoke to a recruiter who got me a place on an assessment day, the very next day. I really liked what Spitfire were about, their goals & aims and the rest as they say, is history.
What’s your role?
My role is a Key Account & Senior Business Development Manager, my role is split into two halves. As a Key Account Manager I look after some of the business’s largest and most profile accounts, my job is to ensure that in the short, medium and long term their business needs & goals are met by the services we provide them with. The other half of my role involves managing, and assisting the more junior staff, the largest new business opportunities that we receive and also ensuring their onboarding with Spitfire is as smooth as possible.
What’s the most rewarding thing about working here?
I’m someone that likes change, so the most rewarding thing for me is being at the forefront of an industry that is ever changing and evolving. Being able to bring new products and services to our customers and shaping the way they run their business has to be one of the best things about my job. A very close second to that though is working with so many likeminded and great people. The sales team is a really close outfit and when the world is back to normal it will be great to get back out to a pub with everyone.
What do you do with your time outside of work?
A lot of my time outside of work is taken up with football and the gym (cliché, I know). I’m club captain and a committee member for a football club close to where I live, I’m responsible for putting together two training sessions each week for up to 60 players alongside match day responsibilities on a Saturday. During lockdown, over the last year, I’ve gotten back into hiking and mountaineering. I’m hoping to start ticking off some of the high profile long distance hikes in Europe this year such as the Skye Trail, the Tour du Mont Blanc and the GR20 (Corsica) and who knows one day I may get the chance to do one of the big US through hikes!
Finally if you were asked to set up a new office for Spitfire anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
This is an easy question for me, it would be San Francisco without a doubt. Its California, it’s on the coast and that should be justification on its own right? The whole bay area is the hub of big tech in the US so would be the perfect door step for us to open and expand Spitfire. Being selfish it’s only a couple of hours drive from Yosemite, which after extensively travelling throughout the US is without a doubt my favourite place. The Sierra Nevada mountain range is a short drive away meaning I can keep up the hiking and with the Napa Valley vineyards & such a great craft brewing scene, there shouldn’t be any reason to look anywhere else.
