On Sunday 12th August, the CEO of Ansabacks 24/7 call centre William Catchpole took part in the Cambridge Triathlon. The triathlon is made up of a 1500m swim, a 40km bike ride finishing with a 10km run and was held at Mepal outdoor leisure centre.
William is no stranger to this type of event and found his passion for it back in 1993 and has aimed to compete in at least one every year. William has also partaken in the ultimate triathlon, The Iron Man competition. This consists of a 3.86km swim, a 180km bike ride and a 42km run. With all this experience it is no surprise that he finished in a brilliant time.
Our 24/7 call handling agents and back office staff were all very supportive of William in the week running up to the challenge and many congratulations followed once he had completed the event. When he was asked if he would do it again, there was only one answer “Of course!”
William isn’t the only person at Ansaback who has a passion for athletic events, Ansaback have put together a team to take part in the Ipswich Half marathon that takes place on the 23rd of September. A mixture of agents from our UK call centre along with back office staff have signed to take part in the 13 mile marathon around the Ipswich area. Christian Pawsey, Managing Director at Ansaback who put the team together has a real passion for this type of event and has already taken part in 4 full marathons and numerous half marathons; so many in fact he can’t even remember the exact number. Christian will be accompanied by Zonja Bunn, David Flack, Dave Besley and Clare Bennett who all work in different divisions at Ansaback, some in the back office and some in the 24/7 contact centre.
