Vikki Pringle | the beginning
Trained in Applied Biology, Vikki used to work as a quality control lab technician for a vaccine manufacturer where she also trained new lab technicians. Seeking a new challenge, she then moved into medical sales before taking a career break to raise her family.
Day to day
Working flexible hours to fit in around her busy family life, Vikki is responsible for running the day-to-day elements of Prototype Projects in her role as Company Secretary.
Vikki runs the payroll, is involved in financial planning, budget setting and the monitoring of spend. This work sees Vikki processing everything for accounting purposes, managing the banking, and reconciliation of accounts. Vikki also supervises Jo Day who processes all invoices.
As part of the management team, Vikki works alongside Justin and Gary to steer the company forward.
To ensure Prototype Projects continues to be a leader in the UK for rapid prototyping, it is important that the latest technology is in place. Prototype Projects’ recent investments include:
- opened a 3D Printing Suite incorporating a specialist medical material 3D Printing unit for medical device prototyping
- installed four state-of-the-art ProJet SLA 3D printing machines
- become the UK’s first print-to-product provider utilising the DyeMansion system to smooth and texture the surfaces of SLS and SLA parts as well as dye SLS parts
- increased SLS capacity by investing in a Formiga P110 Velocis Laser Sinter System
Such investments do, of course, need to be carefully managed and so, with her accounting hat on, Vikki works with Justin and Gary to ensure investments and developments are sound.
Outside of work Vikki enjoys spending time with her family, gardening, socialising, eating out (with the kids and without!), walking and having motor-home holidays.
New for 2019, Vikki and her daughter are taking on the ‘Couch to 5K’ challenge. (Maybe the London Marathon in 2020?!)
