Gareth Hunt, Senior Product Manager

I started at Foster almost 15 years ago as a CAD designer in the Engineering department. I was given more responsibility across new product development (NPD) projects before managing the full engineering NPD process for customer specific products.

From there I focused on our click and collect project, managing the design over several generations of customer specific designs.

Now I use my detailed knowledge of the Foster portfolio in the Marketing department as the Senior Product Manager and I have not looked back since! My role allows me to be the voice of the customer throughout our product design process. The Foster portfolio is vast, and it’s my job to ensure all our products are up to scratch, while providing technical expertise to the wider team.

Foster has given me the opportunity to develop and grow in a safe place. Not only have I undertaken leadership training through Foster, but they also sponsored my MSc in technology management.

The best thing about Foster is that they recognise the hard work we put in and show how appreciative they are. I am surrounded by a great team and get real satisfaction from making a difference to the future of Foster.

We currently have a wide variety of exciting career opportunities available. If you are ready to make a difference,

please email hr@foster-gamko.com.
