Some decent wins on the contract front have helped us plan for some modest expansion – and a significant step is our newest recruit.

Phil Schofield has joined GSPK Design Ltd as sales manager and will be responsible for developing a strategy which we hope will lead us into new markets, and continue to enable our growth.

In fact, describing Phil as a “new” to us isn’t strictly accurate, Phil brings with him a wealth of experience in the electronics market, and actually work for GSPK Electronics back in the 1990s, before leaving to pursue opportunities with US firm Avnet EMG.

His career then took him to Abacus, working as northern region sales manager in Bolton, before being appointed head of Advanced Innovations Ltd’s European sales division, travelling all over the world in pursuit of new contracts.

But Yorkshire has always been a touchstone in Phil’s life and we’re delighted he’s decided to set the jet-set life aside to settle back in Harrogate, where his considerable experience is going to be a significant asset for GSPK Design.

When he’s not performing his duties for us or as a husband and dad to three teenage children, you might bump into Phil on the golf course. To read more why not have a look at our Blog:
