If you’ve been following our social media posts, you will have seen a very brief introduction to the newest member of our sales team. This is where we formally introduce you to Norman Bell.
Norman joins CPA as an Account Manager with a vast and diverse engineering background. After finishing his mechanical engineering apprenticeship with British Steel, he went on to join the once abundant printing industry as a printing press service engineer, after being made redundant, the Whisky industry beckoned.
His 21 years’ service in the Whisky industry began with J&B; the fourth most popular blended whisky in the world, which is now part of global drinks leader, Diageo. As a line engineer working in their Shieldhall plant, it has given him an in-depth knowledge of the engineering requirements of this industry and the challenges that it can be faced with. Deciding to take his engineering knowledge onto the road came when he started a new role in sales and it’s where he has spent the past 8 years of his career. His previous sales role has taken him all over the UK and Europe, meeting many different people and cultures in the process which he very much enjoyed.
Away from his professional life, Norman likes nothing better than reading a great book, and making memories with his two sons, taking them away on amazing trips and experiencing great adventures together. He is also a bit of an amateur chef, with an Indian curry as his signature dish, a task to himself of not having the same dish twice in one month and love of wine. Golf is his other passion, playing off 11 and challenging himself to get it back into single figures. His ‘bucket list’ is to play all the top 100 golf courses in Scotland, and has already ticked off 40. His golfing dream is to visit the famous Augusta and watch the Masters.
