Meet our lovely new team members Ashleigh and Nick 

Since the beginning of the year we’ve continued to grow and we are pleased to say we have two new team members.

I’d like to introduce you to Ashleigh Smeaton and Nick Taylor.

Ashleigh has joined our customer liaison team as customer liaison coordinator.   Ashleigh originates from Manchester and studied sport exercise science at Leeds Beckett University.  Whilst at university she was a sports coach and coached/managed teams for Pudsey Junior Football Club. 

Ashleigh has worked as a supply teacher and as an assistant manager in retail.  She moved to Leeds in 2016.

Nick Taylor has joined our team of solutions consultants and is our cloud print management expert.  Originally from Manchester, and yes he is an ardent fan of United. Studying in Leeds when he was 18, brought him to what his Dad calls “Gods Own County” (he originally came from Pudsey) so you could say he’s gone full circle.

Nick has worked in everything from banking, finance and retail to environmental sustainability and in between, owned and managed a sandwich shop and outside catering business. The common thread to all these roles has been the pleasure he gets from achieving sales and results and delivering quality customer service.

In the last 6 years his career has involved IT in some form or another and promoting and selling software, most recently a mobile data capture application, which allowed users to collect data digitally on a mobile or tablet device.

Away from work trying to keep his wife and two teenage daughters happy doesn’t leave a great deal of time for much else but a big passion of his is food and drink, and not just consuming.  He was once offered a permanent position in a Michelin Starred kitchen in the Lake District, and no, not as a pot washer.  Other than that Nick is a keen film buff, avid reader and enjoys walking his Springer Spaniel, Maya.

We are delighted to welcome Ashleigh and Nick to the AIT family.  They have settled in very quickly and we are looking forward to seeing what the future brings for both of them.

Would you like to be part of our fantastic AIT team?
