Shonah joined Strategic Resources in 1988.
What is the best bit about your job? I’ve been in recruitment for a long time, but I still get a buzz finding someone a job. I’m still very competitive.
What did you want to be when you were at school? I left school at 16 and initially wanted to work with animals, either as a vet or a veterinary nurse as my mum and dad had a farm. My next choice was working with people – I guess I achieved that ambition!
What would clients/colleagues say about you? I suppose that I’m not afraid to speak my mind or put my thoughts forward.
What has been your proudest achievement with Strategic Resources? For me, it has to be becoming the MD of a large company. I’m also extremely proud of the fact we manage everything in-house – recruitment, payroll, accounts and credit control.
What goals would you like to achieve? I would like to see all our staff be successful and happy; I’m really proud of the fact that the staff have been loyal through tough times. I would like to see the business retain & gain new clients & diversify into new areas of business.

Gary joined the company in May 2005.
What is the best bit about your job? It’s great to see Jan & Vicky develop and grow into their roles as part of the recruitment team. I really enjoy mentoring them – hopefully, they see it that way too.
What did you want to be when you were at school? I actually wanted to go into banking. As a kid, it was always exciting going into the bank with my mum & gran. I had my own savings book.
What would clients/colleagues say about you? I’d like to think that colleagues would say that I really care about the business and the people in it – they would also probably say that I tell too many bad joke and silly stories!
What has been your proudest achievement with Strategic Resources? Becoming a director in 2014 has been my personal highlight.
What’s on your bucket list? I’d really love to play golf with a professional – maybe Sam Torrance or Colin Montgomerie as they would have some incredible stories to share. I’d also like to visit Australia or New Zealand & when I eventually retire, the plan is to travel around Europe.

Brian started with Strategic Resources on 9th November 2009.
What is the best bit about your job? Every day is different. I really enjoy working with everyone - clients, contractors & suppliers &, of course, our finance team.
What did you want to be when you were at school? I wanted to be a chartered accountant from the age of 15 – very sad, I know.
What do you like to do in your spare time? I’m treasurer of the Aberdeen & District Table Tennis Association & run Triangle Table Tennis Club at the Aberdeen Sports Village. Despite not getting any younger, I compete regularly in the local leagues & have won a few trophies over the years.
Any claim to fame? I’m fast approaching the 100th pint of blood that I’ve donated; which I am extremely proud of. A claim to fame for me would be that I was there on THAT night in Gothenburg in 1983.
What has been your proudest achievement with Strategic Resources? It would be the streamlining & improving the financial processes to enable faster, more accurate reporting & forecasting.
