Staff Profile – Paul Batty

Each edition we will be putting a member of the IST team through their paces and asking them a variety of questions, not all business related to try and attempt to get to know them a little better. So Paul, its over to you… your turn in the hot seat.

What is your role within IST?
Testing Services Manager

Where were you born?
Born and Bred in Sheffield!

What does a typical day look like for you at IST?
Still today after 25 years here at IST, each and every day is different.  I do not know what will be landing on my desk.  Whether that be a spring failure that requires an investigation, to fatigue test springs, along with communicating with customers both existing and potential.

What do you like to do outside of work?
Spending time with my family Is very important to me, and most weekends we spend at the caravan which is on the east coast at Chapel point.

What football team do you support?
Sheffield United!

Do you play any sports?
Twice a year I swing a golf club!

What music is on your iPhone/Android phone?
Too many to mention, all depends on the day – from Amy Winehouse, Paloma Faith, Coldplay, through to Bon Jovi, Stereophonics and US to name a few.

Paul is also running the half marathon in October. Good luck Paul!
