Settling in: Vicky Edwards

How are you settling in? Vicky Edwards, business development executive, Epyx

How was your first day?

Everyone was kind and welcoming. I spent the day learning about 1link Disposal Network, the product that I sell.

How does your new role differ from your last job?

My previous job was in support and training in the service sector, so the technical knowledge I picked up there has been useful but my new role is much more about sales.

What are you working on?

We are working on an implementation of 1link Disposal Network for a major leasing company.

The product was launched about two years ago but the second half of 2008 really saw it take off.

With the recession, fleets are thinking hard about how they manage disposal.

How do you think the fleet industry is changing?

It is clearly a period of dramatic and unpredictable change but it has opened a window of opportunity for us because fleets are open to new ideas, such as e-commerce platforms.

What has been your biggest achievement so far?

I signed Car Benefit Solutions as a client for the 1link Disposal Network soon after starting.
