Holker take triple jump forward

Holker take triple jump forward

We are delighted to further strengthen our fast-growing team with a trio of new faces.

Locals Simon McGowan and Jordan Woodcock have joined the company as Account Manager and Service Desk Engineer, whilst Slovakian Martina Giles Kusakova has returned ‘home’ to Lancashire.

Holker IT managing director Matthew Metcalfe said: “It is certainly a positive sign that we have had to bring in three new faces.

“We have seen a real spike in business over recent months – particularly in relation to Cyber Security – and there is scope within the team for further growth in the near future.”

Burnley-born Simon, 35, has joined the company’s sales department and will be tasked with liaising with customers and new business development.

With well over a decade’s experience in commercial sales, Simon graduated Burnley College with a Business Administration NVC in 2004 before joining and progressing through the ranks at Walker Farrimond.

Simon is joined by Martina, who takes on the role of Business Administrator.

Originally from Slovakia, Martina spent eight years in Cyprus where she worked as a Crewing Officer for a shipping company.

Whilst in the Mediterranean, the 32-year-old met her now-husband Chris before moving back, in October, to his hometown … none other than Burnley!

The new trio is completed by 25-year-old Jordan, who joins as Service Desk Engineer.

Another graduate of Burnley College, Altham-based Jordan – a keen Motocross enthusiast – boasts a diploma in Engineering and will join the companies revered helpdesk.
