Get Solutions welcomes expert energy specialist

At Get Solutions we’ve recently made a great new addition to our team, specialist procurement manager, Tom Bailey.

With over eight years experience in the energy sector, Tom is ambitious, enthusiastic and highly knowledgeable, making him the perfect fit for our team of energy experts.

Tom’s new role at Get Solutions will see him responsible for product development. Meaning that he will be liaising with energy suppliers to ensure that our customers have the most current, and competitive products, in the energy market.

On taking on his biggest challenge yet, Tom commented: “When it comes to energy, the biggest challenge is working in such a competitive market, whilst ensuring we’re market leaders, not followers.

“And, whilst we need to be current and develop new products, we also need to ensure we have the right balance to cater for different business types, industries and people. So that means having a healthy balance of products and services. Which means you always have to keep moving.”

Managing Director, Alan Dodd, said: “Tom is a fantastic new addition to our team of energy experts, so from all the staff at Get Solutions, we’d like to say welcome to the team!”

Marathon pair raise much needed funds for charity

We’re proud to say that we are a company with staff that really try to make a difference. None more so than Julie Oglesby and Geraldine Roche, who recently took part in the Two Castles Run.

The running duo decided to pick up the pace last February when they committed to get fitter and healthier, starting by quitting smoking, and followed by plans to take part in a marathon.

Geraldine and Julie started training for the 10k marathon back in March, initially with plans to cement their commitment to healthy living, but more recently, in order to raise money for Rosie, a young girl with Polymicrogyria.

On the day, the ladies managed to complete the marathon, between Warwick Castle and Kenilworth Castle, in just over one hour. The pair have since caught the running bug, with plans to take part in the Draycote marathon in September, in order to raise more money for Rosie’s Dreams.

So far they have raised an impressive £1,180 for Rosie, and hope to inspire more local people to dig deep and help donate to this great cause.

Rosie’s Dream has been set up to raise money for a young girl with Polymicrogyria – a condition that causes restricted learning abilities, limited motor skills and spasticity in the legs. As a result, Rosie is confined to a wheelchair.

Rosie’s family is battling to raise the £15,000 needed for an operation called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy – a procedure that will greatly reduce the spasticity and pains. Making life much easier, and happier, for Rosie.
