09 Jan Former school teacher Rodney Kerr Joins the team
Rodney has embarked upon a new venture changing from his career in teaching to setting up a Lockfit franchise covering Great Barr in Birmingham and surrounding areas.
Rodney has been teaching science to 11 – 19 year old (with chemistry being his specialism) for the last 6 years. Prior to that his main career path was based in new media and advertising sales at Yell.com.
Rodney naturally loves a challenge, hence why he fell in love with science, for which he admits it didn’t come naturally, but through sheer will and determination he mastered it to A level standard.
Now his new challenge is to give the best possible locksmith services to his local and surrounding areas. He also loves the problems skills that he is developing in the different scenarios that locksmith services can present.
Rodney has a strong entrepreneurial spirit and has ran a successful private tuition business. So investing a recession proof business sector was a no brainer.
Rodney said: Although I loved my previous role and business, financially I know I deserved more and l love the flexibility and control that I have over my destiny.I can clearly see a great future with lockfit, as the overall vision of the company is realistic and strong.
Kevin Russell, Founder & Managing Director for Lockfit, added: “We are very excited to have Rodney on board, It all adds up to a really exciting time, both for Lockfit and Rodney. Its great to see that people from all walks of life can re-train as a locksmith and enter a fantastic industry that has growing demand.
