I am Tom Cokill
FOUNDER & MANAGING DIRECTOR
Interests: Crap runner, even worse cyclist and a horrendous golfer! Not bad at a BBQ though...
Favourite Brand: Tesla represent a new breed of business. Disruptive, innovative and totally focused of breaking new ground, challenging convention and fundamentally changing the way the worlds works.
Having spent the last 10 years helping other people pursue their dreams I felt it was time I chased my own so I decided to set up Logical Resources FMCG with some amazing business partners. We are very proud to say that it is an extension of us and for that reason alone we are committed to making it awesome.

I am Sam Ellam
FOUNDER & MANAGING DIRECTOR
Interests: Sport is my passion! Love rugby (league), golf (although I find every fairway elusive!), squash, badminton and the gym. "Any time spent outdoors is time well spent!"
Favourite Brand: TaylorMade, they are constantly innovating and driving the sport forward with new equipment, research and design. Completely committed to making the best products and challenging golfing convention. Now, if they could just make a club I could hit 300 yards down the middle!
I founded Logical Resources FMCG with Tom after 5 years in the industry, wanting to create an environment which mixes work and play. "A place where employees wouldn't get out of bed on a Monday morning with that sick feeling in the pit of their stomach." I believe we have done, and will continue to accomplish this.

I am Dan Wilson
HEAD OF MARKETING
Interests: Anything sport related is Dan's passion, except cricket. "I'm definitely more of a watcher than player now though, thanks to injuries!"
Favourite Brand: Has to be Google, they've completely changed the way the world works!
With a passion for everything digital, I've been honing my skills for the past 5 years in a variety of roles and sectors. Now I'm turning my hand to the recruitment industry!

I am Aiden Roberts
Interests: Extreme sports are Aiden's thing. He's ticked off everything from skydiving to caving. "I'd describe myself as a bit of an adrenaline junkie, adventurous sports get the heart pumping!"
Favourite Brand: Virgin; Richard Branson is the most iconic businessman of the 21st century. Starting at 16 with his first record business, he built his empire through pure determination. He has changed the world in so many ways!
I began my career in The British Army. As a communications operator in the Royal Corps of Signals I gained valuable qualities including the work ethic, commitment, versatility and drive that have helped greatly in my recruitment career.

I am Conor Aspel
Interests: Massive football fan and music lover! Be it techno, Take That or Tom Jones, I’ll be blasting it out in the shower!
Favourite Brand: May seem like an obvious choice but Apple definitely has to be my favourite brand, their new product development is second to none and it is the most valuable brand in the world! The fact over 1 billion iPhones have been sold just proves how dominant they are in a very volatile smart phone market.
I gained valuable experience in my previous role as a complaint handler and creating rapport with people is second nature to me! I love talking to new people and this has served me well in my recruitment career.

I am Farran Pringle
SENIOR RECRUITMENT CONSULTANT
Interests: Anything sport related, mostly football though, Liverpool fan (someone has to be). I love travelling and visiting new places, so I rarely spend a weekend in Leeds, I tend to be off exploring instead.
Favourite Brand: Apple, they’ve just taken over the market completely and its rare you’ll ever find someone who doesn’t have an iphone, ipod or ipad.
I worked in retail before going back to college to do an aviation qualification. I then worked at Leeds Bradford airport in security for 2 years before having a complete career change and going to work at a British Gas call centre and doing a customer service apprenticeship. After my apprenticeship, I decided dealing with complaints isn’t my thing so I moved into recruitment which is something that’s always interested me.

I am Luke Goldthorpe
DIGITAL MARKETING EXECUTIVE
Interests: I love to exercise; Having played football my entire life, the endorphins from a workout are worth the near cardiac arrest and pulled hamstring.
Favourite Brand: It has to be Gymshark. The fact that Ben Francis took a start-up clothing brand in his mums garage to a multibillion pound organisation with a brand new 42,000 square foot, state of the art HQ; done in the space of 4 years, making them one of the most rapid growing companies in the UK. Plus they do sick gym gear.
I have recently just finished college studying IT at Notre Dame Sixth Form. This is where my love for creating web pages and animation grew. Believe it or not, I actually enjoy coding!
I am Sarah Calder
SENIOR TALENT MANAGER
Interests: Love sports, watching football and playing hockey, not so much when I’ve been out the night before though! Travelling is also a big thing for me, I love seeing different cultures and meeting new people.
Favourite Brand: Amazon for sure! Can find anything you need and also don’t need, and it’s so quick and easy. One click of a button and next thing it’s at your door, just need to make sure you have a handy neighbor who can sign for them for you!
During school I wanted to study to become a Physiotherapist, but when I finished my A Levels I didn’t fancy having my head stuck into books any longer. I then worked at British Gas for 2 years dealing with customers complaints, decided that wasn’t for me anymore so moved into recruitment. I've been working within temporary industrial recruitment for the last 3 years but wanted a change in industry, so decided Logical Resources was next step for me.

I am Jacob Senior
SENIOR RECRUITMENT CONSULTANT
Interests: Anything sport, particularly football (sadly a long suffering Leeds United fan) cricket & boxing. I’m a big music buff as well and collect retro vinyl records – mainly classic rock & indie stuff.
Favourite Brand: Apple – can’t take anything away from them, so many people have their products and personally I’ll never get anything other than an iPhone!
I started in recruitment nearly 5 years ago after finishing university. Had no idea on what I wanted to really do (cliché), but I had a background in sales and thought it matched quite well. I trained with an FMCG recruiter in Wakefield for 3 years, recruiting primarily commercial & national account managers. I then switched to a regionally focused accountancy & finance specialist in Leeds but have missed the variety & buzz of FMCG, hence joining the team at Logical.

I am Chris Baldwin
Interests: Football, Leeds United , Golf, to be honest anything that keeps me active!
Favourite Brand: Amazon – use it way too much and buy pointless stuff ☹
I've worked in recruitment for 4 & a half years and Danny contacted me to see how things were, I felt like it was about time for a new challenge!

I am Jack Ellis
Interests: Music is a big part of my life, excuse the cliché but I’m open to things from any genre as long as it’s a good tune! I have turntables at home so I collect records and (attempt) to mix them together from time to time. I also have a passion for all types of street art!
Favourite Brand: My favourite brand is probably Amazon. The way you can buy pretty much anything and have it delivered almost anywhere in such a short space of time, normally with no hiccups is impressive!
I worked in Account Management in the motor trade for around 4 years before taking the leap and joining a regional Finance recruiter assisting with their Business Support function. I was approached about the Operations Manager role at Logical, and, as I have friends who work here who only have good things to say about the company, it seemed like a good choice to achieve the progression in my career I was looking for.

I am Greg McVey
Anything to do with sport, I’m interested! Big football fan (Leeds United, so not always easy) and played golf from a young age. Enjoy travelling as well as having done 6 months in South America!
Favourite Brand: Has to be Adidas. To maintain its world-leading status since It began in the 1920s is admirable. They have always stayed relevant, innovative and inspired generations through their products. No matter what you decide to do within sport, you can always trust Adidas and this timeless aspect of their brand is something so rare. You can’t beat 3 Stripe and a pair Stan Smiths!
A bit about me: Worked as a Bar Manager whilst studying at University and decided to get travelling out of my system before starting a career in Recruitment! Experienced within FMCG having spent over 2 years within the industry. Always been people-focused and love building new relationships; this has served me well within Recruitment and its something I’m keen to continue with!
I am Maria Pignanelli
Interests – Anything music related in any genre. It’s been a big part of my life and it always makes you feel better! I also have a little hobby on the side of being an extra on TV which is awesome.
Favourite Brand – Dr Martens. They are a timeless brand that doesn’t need to adapt to the times. I wear them with pretty much every outfit, and I’ve got 3 pairs so far but will always want more! They are the best quality footwear and will last years and years and still look good. Amazing value for money and will look amazing whatever age you are.
I studied Music after leaving school but found myself getting straight into work after college at various Financial services companies. I fell into recruitment 6 years ago and I have never looked back since. Sectors I’ve covered are Healthcare, FMCG and Rec2Rec but FMCG has got to be my favourite. Logical Resources were a client of mine during Rec2Rec so I knew how great the company was. I’m so pleased to be part of the team.
