Annette Thorpe

Regional Partnership Director, 

Annette joined the Post Office in 1981 which subsequently became BT Group.

Her 31 year career spans predominantly sales roles from Corporate and Global Account Management, to Sales Management.

Her sales career encompassed dealing with Global Companies, UK Corporates and the UK Government, as well as staff teams varying from 10 to 210 people.

If asked, Annette will admit that the most enjoyable part of her sales career, was in helping BT deliver the infrastructure for the Bluewater Shopping Centre in Kent. This was at the time, the largest shopping centre in Europe.

Outside of BT, Annette sits on the board of Haven Gateway Partnership. She enjoys travelling around the UK in her capacity as a National League Hockey Umpire, and occasionally still plays hockey for the East of England Lady Masters team.
