As a management team at Prospec we have been working together on business process and development to strengthen our core business, its crucial resources, staff and customer base. Some of our core team are presented below and we are pleased to introduce them to you:
Reem has worked for Prospec since 2013 following a career in Sales across a selection of markets.
Her current role is Business Development Manager for Northern UK and Overseas.
She enjoys driving and reading but has recently taken up binge watching inane TV programmes to combat cabin fever induced by the lockdown.
She thinks she should really get a pet dog instead. In the meantime, Reem volunteers her weekends to NHS organisations administrating and providing the Covid vaccine.
Rob Whitcomb is also a Business Development Manager covering the South with 1 year of service at Prospec and over 8 years within the washroom/bathroom industry across the UK.
Rob is very active and played football for Charlton Athletic when they were in the 1st division and also enjoys weight training.
Mick Spicer is our Works Manager with over 27 years at Prospec with most of this time being spent as the Maintenance Manager providing replacement components to existing installations.
Mick’s current role as Small Works Manager still incorporates the Maintenance Manager role, but now also includes the overseeing of all low value projects where for example an installation just needs a few lockers or cubicles or a couple of vanity units.
Also included within this area are modifications to existing products and small refurbishments.
Mick is one of two brothers both born on Christmas day, but 3 years apart and has a couple of hobbies outside of work including birdwatching, published many articles on this subject over the past 35 years. He also has a camper van so enjoys frequent weekends away.

Here is to the next 35 years and who knows where technology will take our products, but we will continue as a team to lead the way in the Locker and Cubicle sector."
