Kingly Karl is our latest GM to talk to us and he’s from winning Walsall!
How long have you worked for us?
How long have you been a manager?
Nine years with the opposition and 13 months with Buzz
What’s the best thing about your club?
The team and customers
What’s the most exciting thing that has happened while you’ve been a manager?
In my previous company, I was sent on an all-expenses-paid trip to Gibraltar to meet and have input with the digital team
Why should people come to your club?
We have fantastic customer service and real care and rapport with our customers. We value everyone whether they are new members or long-standing members. Our customers are our friends and they’re a step above the rest when it comes to customer care. Whether it is one of my team changing a customer’s flat tyre in the pouring rain to running across to our neighbouring home bargains store to help a customer we know who is struggling with her shopping
What are your favourite hobbies?
I love walking, a real animal lover and would probably take home all the stray animals if my partner allowed me and I didn’t work such long hours
Hamster sized hippo or hippo sized hamster?
Hamster sized hippo
What’s your biggest fear?
I genuinely do not particularly fear anything that springs to mind. I would say that I am not keen on flying but considering the number of holidays I go on and places I’ve been it’s rather irrelevant.
What’s your karaoke song?
Kylie Minogue’s Can’t Get You Out of my Head. Only because I know all the words and can really let go when performing it as terrible as it may be. Prosecco always helps
What’s your hidden talent?
I guess I would say drawing, my art teacher once described me as the most extraordinary artist she had ever taught.
If you could be on any TV show what would it be and why?
I would love to be a Housewife of Cheshire. Unfortunately, my partner decided to be a policeman and not a football player. I think at 37 and the fact that he has probably never even kicked a ball, my aspirations of walking around Cheshire shopping for diamonds and a brand new Bugatti won’t be happening
What would be your specialist subject on Mastermind?
Anything else you’d like to add?
I am probably the most impulsive person anyone could meet and well known for it from friends and family
Thanks for answering our questions, Karl. We’d love to see you flex those drawing muscles!
