Meet Craig Thirkell from Asda's Electronics Team
Hi, I’m Craig. I’m the Buying Manager responsible for TV in Asda’s electronics category. I’ve only been in the role for six weeks having spent the last three years launching and running Asda Mobile (Asda’s own PAYG mobile network).
The move from telecoms into the electronics team was a real no-brainer for me as I love everything about electronics, being a real techy. I work with a great team, who you’ll get to meet in these posts, all of whom cover everything from HDMI cables to the very latest ranges of iPod.
I’ve always worked for Asda after joining as a graduate 14 years ago. There’s never been a more exciting time to work in electronics as right now. Changes are fast and huge and through this blog I get the chance to share and get feedback on all the things that we are doing within the electronics team. I look forward to blogging with you and hearing back from you just what you think and more importantly what you need from Asda – so watch this cyber space.
Away from the day job I’m enjoying being a good dad, have a passion for photography. Having a 15-month-old boy gives me a great excuse to break out my DSLR and I even manage to squeeze in the odd round of golf!
