Who Are We?
Call us: 01438 741 718
We have 45 years combined experience trading computer storage and components!
Sue Gowling: Managing Director (LinkedIn Profile)
Sue has over 25 years’ experience working in the technology sector - she is particularly well known and well connected in the world of hard-disk drive (HDD) trading and repair. She gained experience trading HDDs all over the World for CDS (a major distributor and repairer). Her aptitude for trading soon brought her to the attention of venture capitalists, who supported her to set up Abtec International, rapidly achieving £5M turnover. In 2006 she went solo, setting up Disk Source, which is a leading repairer and supplier of HDD, tape and optical storage, from state-of-the-art, to hard-to-find, end-of-line and obsolete. When she is not working, Sue can usually be found ‘relaxing’ on top of a mountain in Tibet, Nepal or Bhutan, or her beloved homeland – the Lake District!
Gareth Sekoto: Purchasing (LinkedIn Profile)
Gareth is a bit of a chameleon! He began his career by spending 4 years working for GlaxoSmithKline as a Laboratory Technician, so there is a side of him that is very much detail-orientated, rational and logical - important attributes for a Purchaser, and charactristics which may help explain why he enjoys reading, and playing chess in his spare time. However, when he is not working, you are just as likely to find Gareth playing or watching rugby, football or tennis, because Gareth also has a much more extrovert side to him, which has stood him in good stead during the last 4 years that he has spent in customer-facing roles.
Andy Button: Global Sales (LinkedIn Profile)
As well as 4 years experience with Disk Source, Andy has spent 5 years in a variety of other sales roles, ranging from selling VIP corporate hospitality at Wembley, to advising customers buying warehouse storage systems. Life away from work is equally varied for Andy, with interests ranging from personal training, to meditation, golf, cycling, and spending time with his young family.
John Exton: Global Sales (LinkedIn Profile)
John joined Disk Source in 2011, with previous experience as a business development advisor and sales manager. He is now a very experienced trader with a particular aptitude for technically complex enquiries. John is very much the company joker, tirelessly producing groan-inducing quips at the slightest opportunity. In his spare time he likes to do as little as possible, with his occasional forays onto the football pitch generally ending in injury!
Sean Beahan: Global Sales (LinkedInProfile)
When Sean joined Disk Source as a trader in November 2014, he was new to the industry, but not new to sales, trading and brokering - previously, he was an insurance broker for for the medical industry. When he is not at Disk Source, he enjoys spending time with his girlfriend and son. While Sean's childhood dream was to be a professional footballer for Arsenal FC, it is now apparent that his talents lie elsewhere!
