She is a capable individual with an in-depth knowledge of the industry and the wider Bytes group. When the opportunity arose to appoint a national sales operations manager she was the obvious choice.”
According to Gericke, hard work and near on two decades of experience within the print industry has adequately prepared her for this new role. “I started work at Bytes Document Solutions 16 years ago and worked in various roles within the organisation until I found my niche in the direct sales environment.
