We are delighted to introduce our new Membership Advisor for the North East patch of Northern Ireland. John Owens has joined the NI team and we look forward to his contributions.
John gives us an insight to his journey to becoming our newest MA here:
"I began my career working for large national and multi-national corporates like Ford, Danske Bank and Diageo; before co-founding, growing and then selling an engineering supplies business that provided services and products to facilities across the food, pharma, general manufacturing and med device sectors in the UK and Ireland.
"I currently work with Small and Medium sized businesses, across many different sectors, such as food, engineering and enterprise software; who wish to sell into the NI and GB market places or the ROI and Northern European market places.
"Having been a small business owner since 1999 and a long time FSB member, I was delighted when I was approached by the Federation to represent them in Mid and North Antrim.
"I was born in Ballymena and educated in Ballymena, Ballymoney and Coleraine. With connections all through the Braid Valley and up the east coast, I’m looking forward to “coming home” to show local business people how the FSB can help them."
