A working day in the life of...Andy Brimble

What is your morning routine before setting off for work? 
Up early with a need for Coffee, followed by the foot steps of my children’s feet and voices demanding breakfast and drinks. Shower, dressed, more coffee and check of emails before starting my 40 minute drive to Aintree.

What was your background before joining Hayes & Finch?
My previous job was at Pepsico, where I worked for nearly 10 years. Although it was snacks rolling off the end of each line, the process of manufacturing remains the same. I set out each day looking at each line - with the aim of producing the best of products in the most efficient way.

What is a typical day at H+F like for you?
My day starts with a lovely coffee waiting for me on my desk, which I enjoy whilst running numerous reports detailing the previous days production and sales shipments, followed by the days tasks ahead. I run a morning meeting to discuss any challenges that each department may have had, and inform everyone of any challenges which might be ahead. Production reports are run and we set out to make the best products available on the market.

What is your favourite part about working with the Commercial Team?
The diversity of the work which comes across our paths each day never fails to amaze me, this makes each day enjoyable.

How do you spend your free time outside of the office?
I love to spend my days out the office with my family and playing dad taxi for my son and daughter.

What things cheer you or make you happy?
I have so many things in my life which bring me joy, from my wife and children, to my job and feel very lucky to have both a happy home and work life balance.

What device did you use to answer these questions?
I have wrote this bio whilst on my dinner break using my desk top computer.
