Meet Tim

As part of the SMT, Tim Spickernell has started with Huboo as our new HR Director.  Tim will be working hard to set the direction of and implement the people strategy for the company.

‘As I type this it’s day 3 so I’m still working out who everyone is and where to get the best coffee (black, one sugar if anyone’s getting them in).  The people function at Huboo is evolving as we take on new challenges and support the organisation’s fantastic growth and I want the team to be central to supporting this expansion. 

During my career I’ve worked in a number of different industries and business sectors from professional services to the dairy industry and most recently in the online retail and B2B sales sector.  I want to bring that breadth of experience to the organisation and help both the people of Huboo and the company grow and succeed.’

As well as being involved in a number of other projects, Tim will develop projects that Alicia Docherty initiated, and we should now be directing any queries that would have gone to Alicia to Tim.

Quick-fire questions!

Best holiday?  A week in Stockholm exploring the city and the islands
Dream dinner guest?  Ed Gamble and James Acaster (love their Off Menu podcast)
Biggest fear?  That one’s easy, spiders – no contest
