As a Fintech company, we're so used to using digital platforms to connect with our clients, prospects and wider networks, that we sometimes forget to consider...you might want to know a little more about us and who we are as actual humans.
We sat down with Jordy Dikala, Customer Success Manager, to find out who he is and what makes him tick. Here is what we found:
Jordy joined PayDashboard in early 2020, initially as a Business Development Consultant within the Sales team.
Jordy studied English and Journalism at Coventry University graduating in 2016 with a 2.1 average. His first professional role was at Taxi For Email, an email creations software platform where he dipped his toes into Sales. After completing a year, he ventured on to MyDrive - a driving instructors sales platform where he continued to hone his sales skills. However, the company went under in 2020 and Jordy found his way to PayDashboard, where he joined as a Business Development Consultant in the Sales team.
