In our July addition of ‘Meet the Team’ series we met with Tim Bheemul, next to go under the spot light is Scott Partridge one of our Wide Format Specialist sales men.
People usually just remember me as the wide format guy, but you can call me, Scott!
I don’t know how I wound up in this industry, because I actually studied at college to be an aircraft engineer. Then somehow I ended up working for a Japanese company in Reigate called Canon, becoming a specialist in their wide format product portfolio.
I used to be heavily into motorbikes and rode a Triumph Speed Triple, but I sold all my bikes a few years ago to move house and start a family. My wife Becky is the most gorgeous woman I’ve ever met and we have a 10 month old son called Jackson (Jax for short).
We live near Tilgate Forest in West Sussex with our Collie-Cross-German Shepard: Benji.
I don’t get much “spare” time, but when I do I like to spend it with friends or training Brazillian Jiu Jitsu.
Favourite Singers / Groups: I’m a huge Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder fan, but the music that really gets me on the floor is old school R&B.
Favourite songs / Albums: There’s so many, but the one I’m playing a lot lately is “She’s Playing Hard To Get” by Hi-Five
Favourite Films:Oh my god, I’m a huge film buff! They don’t make them like they used to either…. No intro to a film gets me fired up like the first few minutes of Top Gun! I think the one film of all time that made me question everything though, is The Matrix.
Favourite Actor / Actresses:Leonardo DiCaprio has gone right up in my estimations since the Wolf Of Wallstreet. But let’s face it, you’re in for a good time if the Rock or Kevin Hart have anything to do with it!
Favourite TV Shows: I got hooked on Game Of Thrones and loved the way that came to an end, but there’s so much out there to watch now that I’m drowning in people’s suggestions! I just started watching “The Boys” and would highly recommend that to everyone…
Favourite Holiday Destination: I think Turkey was one of my favourite holidays so far, but I’d really love to do the family theme parks with Becky and Jackson in Florida when he’s older.
Favourite Drink:I do drink a fair bit of Merlot, but I’m also partial to a Single Malt Whiskey (or two!).
Favourite Book / Authors:I don’t have enough spare time to read that much, but I walk my dog between 2 and 3 hours everyday around a lake that’s close to my house, so I listen to a lot of podcasts and books on tape. So far, I find Jordan Peterson and Graham Hancock the most interesting/engaging.
Favourite Animal: My dog Benji!He’d be your favourite too if you ever met him!
