Building an army of export pros

The latest recruit to our growing Export Network is Rob Rospepedzihowski, the commercial sales director of electronic components manufacturers Premier Farnell, which exports more than two-thirds of its output.

As well as becoming one of our key Ambassadors, Rob is one of the keynote speakers at our next event on 17th July at Deloitte in Leeds from 4pm-6pm. He will be offering powerful insights into how overseas business can be won.

The Network has now grown to a distinguished group of 30 seasoned export professionals drawn from companies of all sizes and operating across numerous sectors.

“With 70 per cent of our sales outside of the UK and the percentage growing in Europe, we understand the significant importance of international trade and export,” said Rob. “As a 70 year old company we have developed a robust strategy for international trade and this continues to change and adapt. 

“Sharing best practice and knowledge to new start-ups is vital to ensure the success of business in Yorkshire and the UK. That is why I am speaking at this event about the experience I have gained at Premier Farnell.”
