My family - my wife and two young boys take up most of my free time! We especially enjoy travelling together. When I do get time to myself, my hobbies have always been football, gardening and I am quite interested in antiques.

Sales Managers

John Gulliver Export Sales Manager

Joined in 2000

I am in charge of managing the Export Team to co-ordinate the international shipment of Connects2 products and looking after our key global accounts. I am continually looking into new countries, territories and markets where we can expand the business through aftermarket and OEM import business. I also travel often to meet customers to gain a better understanding of their local markets, as well as visiting shows with Connects2 to demonstrate our latest innovative products.

Probably texting the Director of the company thinking I was texting my wife asking what colour underwear she was wearing! Ooops.

Angie Dimmack Sales Manager - BRIC

Joined the group in 1987 and moved to Connects2 in 2010

My role encompasses business development for the BRIC region and involves customer liaison alongside account support and development. When carrying a product through from initial idea to delivery, I am in contact with all departments, from Development and Purchasing to Production and Despatch. I also pride myself in ongoing customer support with technical and application issues after sales.

Hobbies / Interests outside of work

Gym! (don’t laugh – I go regularly at the moment!) Socialising with friends and family! I am currently learning (very slowly) Spanish. I enjoy cooking and baking.

Most embarrassing moment

Too many to mention…. Most are from too long ago! A few more recent but not appropriate to print!
