To get to know the people behind the company, we’re running a series of ‘Meet the Team’ interviews with members of Corona staff. In November, we spoke to Lee Lambert, our Service Manager on the Telecoms team, in January we met with Lucy Allen, one of the Call Controllers on the Print Mgt Service desk. Next up is Mike Hare, one of the Field Engineers in our Print Mgt Technical team:
“Hi, I’m Mike. I have been working in the industry for 15 years. I am happily married to my wife Emma and have one daughter who is seven, called Elizabeth. Outside of work I like to play my bass guitar and fly my power kite. I help in the local Scout Group, especially in regards to outdoor activities e.g. fire lighting, camping, rock climbing, etc. I have also recently encouraged my wife and daughter to take up rock climbing. We own a VW camper van and often travel around the UK and Europe.
