March Team Member of the Month

Each month the team at MPR IT are asked to put forward their nomination for Team Member of the Month and their reasoning behind the decision.

We are pleased to announce that this months winner is none other than Bill Van Doorn. Having been with us since 2015, Bill joined us to work and support the Tech team. 

Bill came out on top of a close battle between several employees, here are some of the comments from the team:

“Well organised.”

“Always available to help.”

“My go to guy whatever the problem.”

Originally from Holland, Bill moved to the UK to join the team at MPR IT. Starting his career in IT in Holland, when the industry changed in the early 2000’s he decided to leave IT.

Following his passion for cooking, he trained as a chef working his way up from Sous chef to Head chef in various restaurants with expertise in classic French and Italian cooking.  After 10 years in the profession he decided he was not enjoying it as much as he had been. So decided to get back into IT, so he packed up, left everything behind and moved to Ashford to start a new chapter in his life.

Bill is a very busy person outside of his work life and is also a music producer and has co-founded his production company.  He also is very interested in on-line gaming. And still loves to cook for friends and family – not forgetting the team in the office!

Since joining MPR IT he has taken on the role on the Tech helpdesk and is also responsible for our stock room due to his great organisational skills.  He continues to further his knowledge in IT studying in his spare time and is pleased to have made the move to work within the team .

Congratulations Bill – Well deserved winner.
