Driven By Passion
Partner with a passionate recruiter
“I have been in Sales all my working life, when leaving school this wasn’t the plan. I left school at 16 and was on a journey to become a professional musician, I learned to play the drums from the age of 11 starting out at school and lived and breathed drums 24/7 and was fortunate enough to land decent gigs in theatres locally and nationally and also playing and recording with bands at a young age and gained acknowledgement and recognition that I still experience to this day. Attending College and University wasn’t of interest, my focus was a career playing drums professionally. To support my passion, I got a job for a newspaper ironically it was called JobMart, I sold adverts to companies hiring staff and this was my first exposure to sales and also to recruitment agencies who were some of my clients. I excelled at sales and worked for leading trade and consumer publishers in London and this career path took me to Atlanta & Miami between 1997 – 2002 as a Sales director for a publishing company and then as a Regional Director for a media brokerage firm in Miami, this was an amazing period in my life. The tragic events of September 11th in 2001 saw the Global economy crash and I returned to the UK in the summer of 2002 and I wanted a career change, and recruitment was the path I chose. Initially working in recruitment to recruitment, however, wanting to be challenged & wanted to recruit professionals from a specific sector and I was offered the opportunity to recruit in IT / Digital Sales and I worked for 2 companies in that space. I then setup Digital Execs & Taylor & Faith Both businesses run side by side, however, they are two different propositions. The name Taylor & Faith are the middle names of my two children, I am building the business on the philosophy I use to raise my children; Honesty – Integrity – Hard work to achieve your life and career goals. Playing drums is still a passion that I have, however, these days with a busy work and family life playing the drums is now limited to playing percussion at the occasional party.”
