My job is fairly high profile – at least internally. I’m the guy that people go to if they have a query about market information. That’s not to say that I necessarily know about all the dynamics of the industry. I’m the funnel – all market information coming into the company go through me. By inference, people expect me to understand what’s going on.
So, from time to time I get the MD walking to my desk, wanting to understand this or that. The other day, I got a call from our CEO, too.
I never really sought to be a high profile corporate person. It’s sheer luck that I found this job. It’s also lucky that I like it and apparently I’m quite competent at it.
It just goes to show that sometimes, it does fall your way.
