Businessman turns his hand to volunteering
3:20pm Wednesday 24th October 2012 in News
A BUSINESSMAN from Northwich is looking to put his skills to good use by volunteering for charity.
Mark Muslek, who lives on London Road, has spent more than 30 years working in the business sector but now, the 53-year-old is stepping out of his comfort zone and giving two days a week to charity.
Until last year, Mark was the managing director for JLT Mobile Computers Ltd, a rugged PC manufacturer based in Runcorn. He now holds the title of sales and marketing manager at Mobexx Ltd.
“I’ve spent most of my life working in business,” said the father-of-two, “but I’ve come to the point now where I’ve got a couple of days spare a week and I want to do something worthwhile with them.
“My wife suggested volunteering with a charity and I thought it was a fantastic idea. The charity sector isn’t one I’m 100 per cent familiar with but I’ve worked with charities on a commercial level in the past, namely St Luke’s, and know how they work.
Mark says he has no real preference over which charity he helps, as long as they have good use for him and are based in the local area.
He said: “I’ve got experience with team building, growing revenue and driving market dominance. I’m able to deliver lasting benefits to companies, and hopefully charities, through internal co-operation and external partnerships. I’ve got experience with streamlining supply chains and developing sales channels both on a local and international level.
“It doesn’t matter to me which charity I help – I don’t mind if it’s a charity for children, for adults, or for animals, as long as I can help in a way that’s worthwhile for both parties.
“The size of the charity doesn’t matter to some extent, but most of my skill set is strategic sort of stuff and micro charities might not have the need for that like some bigger charities do.”
