Introducing Daniel Laird, the newest member of Develop’s Sales Team
Dan has a diverse professional background that began in the sunny landscapes of Turkey, Gran Canaria, Rhodes, Fuerteventura, and Lanzarote, where he worked as a holiday representative. Upon returning to the UK, Dan settled in Bedford and began turning up the heat on his sales journey by selling ovens. This path then led him to sales roles in marketing exhibition spaces, and garden log cabins & climbing frames, amongst others.
Originally hailing from Derby, Dan recently made the decision to move back with his partner, and reconnect with his family. Dan explains, “The pandemic was a particularly challenging time for me professionally as I was made redundant from my role selling exhibition stands and then I struggled to find a role I really gelled with. The pandemic also made me realised the importance of family and how much I missed being with them – hence, my move back home to Derby. I’m really excited to join the Develop team and get stuck in to my new role – everyone has been so welcoming so far.”
Beyond his professional life, it’s no surprise that Dan is an avid traveller, with Mauritius holding a special place as his favourite destination. Dan also recently tied the knot with his long-term partner of 15 years.
