Adrian Saker joins Develop as a Client Development Advisor based in York
12 October 2020
A warm welcome to Adrian Saker who joins Develop as a Client Development Advisor. Based at our York training centre alongside Jon Savage and Chris Edgar, Adrian is responsible for dealing with inbound enquiries via telephone, email and live chat, as well as account management for a number of SME customers.
Adrian's career began with a Business Studies course at college, followed by a number of Customer Service and Sales roles across a wide variety of industries. During his time at an electrical appliance provider, Adrian once sold the legendary Bob Monkhouse a DVD player only to have him call him up a week later from his home in the Caribbean asking him to explain how it works – this resulted in a hilarious conversation between the two with Adrian having to explain step by step how to get it to turn on!
"It was a really funny and surreal moment that just goes to show that celebrities are the same as the rest of the general public – all of us struggle with technology!", said Adrian.
In recent years Adrian has worked as a Business Development Executive at a York-based training provider assisting clients with their training needs, and an Employer Engagement Advisor offering healthcare courses. With such a varied sales background, Adrian brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to his new role at Develop and we look forward to having him as part of the team.
Outside of work, Adrian is married with a 16yr old daughter called Alicia. He enjoys running, photography and collecting vinyl records.
Welcome to the team Adrian!
