    Director

    I have been thinking a lot about what I should tell you about me that will encourage you to select Quadra as a supplier of software, technical support or PCB design and manufacturing services.

    At sixteen years of age I embarked on a traditional mechanical and production engineering apprenticeship, pretty soon after I came out of my time I left GEC and moved to TDS Circuits in late 1981. At the time TDS were one of the foremost PCB fabricators in the UK manufacturing some of the most advanced and complex PCBs.

    I have spent the last forty plus years working in the PCB industry, I am passionate about PCB Design Fabrication and Assembly, at Quadra we strive for complete customer satisfaction, we believe in lasting, mutually beneficial business relationships.

    Nicole Alderson

    Marketing Manager

    I started my career as a Business Administration Apprentice and have worked my way up to Marketing Manager.

    I cover all aspects of marketing which includes: website, events, design, social media and blogs.

    My background in business administration means I always keep a close eye on ROI and CPA whilst being able to come up with a creative solution.

    Personally, I have a flat-faced cat called Bleu, an unhealthy obsession with pasta and I’m partial to a glass of Pinot on the weekend.

    Michelle Holden

    Autodesk Sales Manager

    I have over 20 years’ experience in customer account and people management both B2B & B2C. Yes, you did read that correctly I said 20 years…I know I’ve aged well. Over the years I have managed customer accounts for bulk fuel, fuel cards, telephone systems and all the bits that come with it. The majority of my career however, was spent in banking, working for the RBS group. I spent 6 of those years working for Ulster Bank in Northern Ireland, where I managed group projects and branches.

    So, what brought me to Quadra I hear you ask? Well…

    I moved back home to be closer to family and decided to embark on a degree in Law…it wasn’t for me however; I did pick up some useful skills.

    Just over 5 years ago an opportunity opened up at Quadra and I was fortunate enough to be offered the position of account manager, looking after MFG and AEC customers. Then the challenge began, having little experience in either sector it was time to put the recently acquired academic skills to use and swat up. I must have done ok because I have built up a good customer base and built some fantastic relationships while helping customers improve workflows and increase revenue.

    I have since received a promotion and now also look after the Autodesk sales team.

    A little bit about me personally (as if you haven’t read enough) I have 2 children now both in their mid to late teens. I have 2 horses, 2 dogs and 2 cats. I think I have a thing for even numbers and animals. Oh, and I really like Gin.
