Michael Myers

Mike started his career in the travel industry and subsequently moved to a company involved with the sourcing and supplying of parts for copiers and printers. This soon prompted his interest in the destination and use of these products which meant technical training was required. He started here as a trainee technician with the SBM service team and has proved to be an able and willing learner, which augurs well for the future.
