Meet the Fire Training Team
Based in our West Yorkshire offices, our support team has over 100 combined years of training management experience to offer you!
The team is headed by General Manager, Ian Potter who was responsible for the initial creation and development of UK Fire Training. Ian is responsible for the overall direction and management of the business and is proud of individually meeting and selecting all of our trainers and consultants. Ian is the key account manager and ensures that all contracts are set up to meet client expectations from day one. Ian is a keen tennis player but is only likely to be spotted at Wimbledon in the capacity of a spectator!
The overall management of contract support falls to Dawn Williams. Dawn has been with the company since 1987 and has seen the business evolve from a government funded training and employment agency to the commercial training business you see today. Dawn ensures that all clients and trainers have all of the support information, contracts and back-up they need to ensure services booked run smoothly which is no mean feat! Dawn is always available to answer your queries and nothing is too much trouble…friendly is her middle name!
A complicated financial structure is managed by Dave Williams who has also been with us since the early days. Dave takes care of all banking, reporting and accounting activities and oversees all of our payment and credit control functions. A keen sportsman, Dave used to play for Doncaster Rovers and has the ability to discuss this at length….great length!
