Meet Ascendancy’s Arthur

Liked our first ‘get to know the team’ blog?

Here’s the next one for you. Meet Arthur, he’s in charge of business development!

  • Tea or coffee?

Tea – Irish descent means I have no choice, plus cake goes far better with tea!

  • What is your favourite meal?

Full Irish cooked breakfast – better than the English version, as it has everything the latter has, plus white pudding and potato cakes.

  • If you could be an animal, what would you be?

A brown bat – it sleeps 20-hours a day (something I have always aspired to).

  • Do you prefer dogs or cats?

Cats – as, on average, they sleep 1-hour longer than dogs.

  • Who would play you in a movie?

Dylan Moran – as that’s who I would like to be.

  • Tell us an interesting fact about yourself?

I used to run for Wolverhampton & Bilston Athletics team – then I had a serious knee injury and sadly it all came to an end (or it might have been the love of food and beer).

  • Any funny anecdotes you would like to share?

I once fell out of a high-speed train and survived – on reflection, it was very funny!

  • Why do you like working for Ascendancy?

Working with a small, talented, team after years of working in the big corporate world, where sadly talent is lost in the noise of company politics.

  • What is the favourite part of your job?

Watching the team & the business grow.

  • Any secret talents?

I can drink Guinness at an alarming rate!

  • What is your favourite thing about Shropshire?

It is a bit of a hidden secret – so we can have this beautiful, quiet county all to ourselves.
