CDC Control Dataset

CDC  Control Dataset, Birmingham    1984 – 1987

Sales Consultant – Mainframe computer consumables

  • Achieved sales targets for the bulk sales of computer consumables to corporate customers in West Midlands.
  • Joint top salesman in company – 1985/86. The prize: New York 1st Class on the QE2 with a week in the Waldorf Astoria and then home 1st Class on Concorde!

Sadly, Control Dataset were eventually bought out by Xydex (another media manufacturer) and the Birmingham branch was closed down, with a shrinking market as technology got smaller and cheaper, concluding that Manchester was better positioned to serve the northern market.
