Lisa Bottomley

My name is Lisa Bottomley, and I am the Deport Members Services Manager here in Bradford, where I have worked for 3 years. My main role is to look after all the Farmers, Hauliers & Collection Centres assisting them with any queries and equipment needed.  I enjoy the relationships I have gained over the year and feel I am 100% dedicated to dealing with everything efficiently and on time that suits the Farmer, Haulier and Collection Centre.

I also deal with the dispatch side of the business, where I arrange wool to be delivered to the Bradford Depot to be put in the next sale and arrange sold wool to be collected by many different haulage companies.

In my spare time, I like to cook and go out for meals. I also love watching my sons play football and Rugby.

The DMSM is a varied role with my focus aimed at providing our members with the best service possible. The role can be quite challenging at times but being able to sort out any issues and offer solutions is rewarding and gives me job satisfaction.

In my spare time, I am a keen supporter of the Lauderdale Bloodhounds. I enjoy the outdoors & most country pursuits & country shows and of course, I enjoy my holidays abroad to get a bit of much needed sunshine.
