Meet the Team - Rowan McFarland
Continuing on with our ‘Meet the Team’ feature, we want to introduce you to Rowan McFarland who works as part of our accounts team! Find out more about Rowan below.
How long have you been working for IPC Mouldings?
I’ve been a part of the IPC team coming up two years, I joined back in January 2020.
What does a typical day entail for you?
A typical day starts with a cup of coffee and catching up with overnight emails. As we have a large number of international suppliers, most of our suppliers’ communications come in overnight. If I’m not communicating with our suppliers, then it will be with our shippers. Apart from those two things, I would assist with general task and duties around the business.
What’s the best thing about your job?
The main enjoyment I get from my role is without a doubt, working alongside our suppliers and shippers, arranging shipments. This could either be organising air freights, sea freights or even having a courier collect from a supplier.
What is your greatest personal achievement with IPC Mouldings?
I would say that every time a shipment comes in, especially if it’s a large order of raw material, it feels like a great achievement.
If there is no material, then there are no parts produced.
How has working at IPC Mouldings benefitted you since you have started with the company? What skills have you learned/developed?
Since starting with IPC, my knowledge has improved greatly when it comes to international trade, logistics, communication, customer service and what it means to be a part of an international supply chain.
What are your hobbies outside of IPC Mouldings?
I love being in the outdoors, either fishing or shooting. I also have a love for anything with four wheels and an engine, especially if it’s a V8!
Tell us one interesting fact about yourself:
I lived and went to school in Toulouse, France for two years, when I was younger.
