At the heart of Oltco is our Oltco HQ team. Every one of our employees plays a crucial role in driving the success of the business. Our ethos is to ‘feel good about the work that we do and the decisions that we make’ so it’s important that each member of our team is passionate about their work and most importantly, has fun.
The newest addition to the team, who embodies Oltco’s ethos, is Kristian Evans, our new Sales Support Manager. You’re likely to see Kris travelling around Cornwall, visiting our clients and helping them plan their dream garden transformation. He’s an expert in everything Oltco and is around to answer all your questions.
What made you want to work for Oltco?
I have known Johnny and Tom for a few years, as I’m local to Newquay. I wanted to work for Oltco as they have created a really positive culture within the company, which can be hard to come by with other companies. I previously worked in car sales and the transition to Oltco was seamless as a lot of the skills I developed are transferable. It was great to discover that Oltco really cares about your personal growth and it feels so good to be part of the Oltco family. I’m also a big supporter of Oltco’s sustainability work with its award-winning product, Recycle Bound.
What excites you about Oltco and about joining the Oltco family?
A healthy work life balance was one of the enticing factors that led me to joining Oltco. As Johnny and Tom are so supportive and understanding, working at Oltco allows me to work for an innovative company, spend time with my son and do the things I enjoy in my spare time.
What is your role?
A typical working day consists of site visits across Cornwall and Devon, where I meet and greet the clients and help them to discover the potential of their property and design their dream outside space. My role also includes measuring out the area where they want the resin surface to be laid. I act as a point of contact for the client, send invoices and also help out the Oltco teams with laying the resin. There’s so much versatility to the role which is really exciting.
What is your favourite part of your role?
My favourite aspect of the role is just getting to be out on the road representing Oltco whilst also exploring the beauty of Cornwall. There is nothing better than meeting the wonderful array of Oltco customers and then helping make their visions come to life. It’s such a great feeling when we help customers transform their driveways, patios, gardens and open spaces into an area that they adore.
What is your favourite beach in Cornwall?
I love to surf when I have the time, so you can often find me catching a wave or two at Fistral beach.
What is your favourite Oltco blend?
It’s a tough choice as there are so many brilliant Oltco blends available, but as my favourite beach is Fistral, I think it’s fitting that its also my favourite blend.
What do you like to get up to in your spare time?
You can catch me out and about in Cornwall on my days off. Like Johnny and Tom, family is extremely important to me, so I love spending time with my 15-month-old son. As Cornwall is such a beautiful place, I also like to enjoy sports outside. Rugby is one of my favourite sports and I also enjoy training at the gym.
