After being made redundant, Kevin Wright, took the opportunity to take on a career he was truly passionate about
Kevin Wright joined Wagging Tails in the spring of 2015 having been offered redundancy by the IT company he worked for that was relocating his department abroad to cut costs. “In early 2015, I was working in the corporate world and had been for many years,” says Kevin. “Then they (my company) decided it would be cheaper to get the work done in India and was made redundant.”
Taking this as an opportunity to take on a career he is truly passionate about Kevin’s hard work enabled him to build a successful and vibrant business in Hertfordshire alongside his two dogs, Roly and Abbie, with the support of his wife, Doreen.
He says: “I decided this was not a disaster, but an opportunity to do something different. I liked the idea of running my own business, but I’m no Alan Sugar, so the idea of a franchise appealed to me. I looked through many different opportunities. As a dog lover, Wagging Tails really stood out for me. It was an established, successful and, importantly, ethical business.
“There have been ups and downs, as with any business, but with guidance and support from our head office, as well as from my family, I’ve been able to establish a respected and trusted business with a team of wonderful, caring, dog lovers. I’m proud of what we’ve achieved and the service we offer and I can honestly say it’s the best thing I’ve ever done!”
