Erica Howe

IT & Systems Manager

Summary

Erica started at Humentum, formerly Mango, at the beginning of 2005 as training support officer, and her current job title is IT & systems manager. Erica’s main responsibility is to co-ordinate efficient and effective use of technology. She is also responsible for managing other technical or premises-related projects. Although she says her technical expertise is limited, her ability to juggle priorities and liaise across teams makes this role very fulfilling.

All Erica’s previous work experience has been in the services industry. Her parents owned restaurants, so she was waiting on tables as soon as she could walk. At 18, she moved into retail and started on the management ladder. After a decade in retail she decided she wanted a change and applied for a role with Humentum. She loved the energy and left the interview realizing her life was about to change. As a mother of 2 pony-loving children, much of Erica’s spare time is spent grooming, plaiting, tacking up, and supporting their hobby.
