Introducing Sam Blackwood, IT support officer

By Ryan Smith on November 20, 2018

Sam Blackwood joins Lead Tech as IT support officer.

Lead Tech continues to introduce some great new talent into the team. We’re dedicated to helping financial advisers grow their business with the leads and client introductions they need.

Sam Blackwood joins the company as our IT support officer, coming from his previous role as a service desk analyst at Harrogate’s Welcom Digital.

He has a wealth of experience gained over 11 years working in IT. Sam’s previous role required him to ensure that websites and software ran smoothly, dealing with any issues efficiently, as well as a number of projects that required intensive quality assurance testing ahead of a website launch.

Sam’s experience allows him to join Lead Tech and start applying his knowledge to our Salesforce lead distribution system. This means our financial advice partners benefit from a smooth experience when receiving our leads.

“Within Lead Tech I am hoping to apply my current skills to my new role and I’m willing to learn whatever it takes to help the team accomplish their targets. I hope to prove myself within the next few months and show the company what I am capable of.”

Sam is also a father to two twin boys, who take up a lot of his spare time (not that he’s complaining):

“I try to take them on walks and hikes as often as possible, but sometimes that isn’t as easy as it sounds!

“I am generally an outdoors person but when I am indoors my main passion is movies and TV shows. Ever since I first saw Jurassic Park I have had a major interest in movies and how they are made, so I try to go out to the cinema as often as possible.

“I am really looking forward to meeting everyone and seeing what the future brings!”
