Prodigy Team

Welcoming Sammy to the team

We’re delighted to be welcoming Sammy to the Prodigy team in the role of Sales & Procurement Co-Ordinator

What did you do before joining Prodigy?

I was a Sales Operations Manager for over 13 years at Nasstar/GCI/Blue Chip. (Multiple acquisitions). I managed a national Sales Support Team, developed and trained on sales processes, managed sales contracts, and much more.

 What made you want to work with us?

I liked the feel of the company. It feels like a friendly team of people, who value their employees. I also love the way they hold customers at the centre of everything they do.

 How has your time here been so far?

Wonderful. Everyone I’ve spoken to has gone over and above in their help. (Not just answering but helping me understand too). There’s a lot to learn from a systems and process point of view, but I’m getting the hang of it.

 What’s the best thing about working here so far?

The people. The team and customers I’ve spoken to have all been so lovely and positive.

 What do you like doing in your free time?

I volunteer for a charity that supports people questioning their gender identity, and those around them. You can often find me at a stall at Pride events. I’m transgender myself, and I think it’s important to do what I can to give back.
