The first thing you’ll notice if you speak to her on the phone is ‘confidence’. You see, Lisa Bradbury has been making (and taking) difficult calls every working day for the past CENSORED! years…
‘I’m always excepting a lot of people to ring me up’, she says with a laugh.
Meet our newly-crowned Queen of Credit Control. Lisa joined us from a company called SMH, but the bulk of her career so far – CENSORED! years, in fact – was spent with Brett Oils, the UK’s largest fuel distributor.
A Jarrow lass, born and bred, Lisa sums up her duties like this – ‘making sure all the deliveries are going out and all the payments are coming in’ – and that’s pretty much ‘on the money’. (Pardon the pun). Day to day, she’ll be chasing payments, keeping a watchful eye on debts and credit limits and co-ordinating orders.
At home, Lisa’s a wife (to Paul) and a mother to a 21 and a 17 year old – both of whom (deep joy!) remain in the family nest… She’s a bit of an exercise nut (we’ve already put her name down for next year’s charity effort) and when all else fails, she has a much-loved Shih Tzu on hand to keep her sane.
And finally, the thing you need to know most of all: is she a Magpie or a Mackem? ‘I’m Newcastle through and through’, she says.
Welcome on board, Lisa!
