Daryl Hocking - Key Account Manager
From leaving sixth form college without an idea of what I wanted to achieve, I have been able to learn and create a career at Sleaford Quality Foods. I would most definitely recommend the company when it comes to supporting and promoting personal growth.
Daryl initially joined Sleaford Quality Foods in July 2001 when he was just 16, as a member of the production team. His varied role included packaging food ingredients, cleaning machinery and pre-weighing/blending bulk ingredients. His career progressed when he moved into an office-based role as a Customer Sales Advisor, where he worked for 6 years, before advancing into his current role as a field-based manufacturing Key Account Manager. He now oversees the accounts of several well-known food businesses within the UK manufacturing sector. Daryl’s main responsibility is to ensure those accounts are fully-serviced and drive new opportunities to help them grow - as well as finding new customers to work with. Daryl’s rise through the ranks has seen him visiting new companies and learning more about Sleaford Quality Foods’ customers, many of whom are manufacturing the goods that we find in our kitchen cupboards at home. Sleaford Quality Foods has also given him the opportunity to travel to key suppliers in Turkey and India to understand where the raw materials used every day originate.Read More
