Meet The Team: Marcus Pavlidis

Next on the chopping block, a member of our internal sales team Marcus!

What Does Marcus Do for Plyco?

Marcus works for Internal Sales at Plyco Fairfield.

In his daily routine he answers inbound calls and emails. Alongside Justin, who is his partner in most shenanigans, he mans the front desk at Plyco, Fairfield. He also assists customers in the showroom, and on the factory floor where he helps to load their vehicles. As the person in charge of internal sales, he’s the main point of call in responding to online enquiries from the company’s ecommerce store. 

He brings fun and enthusiasm into the workplace by customising music playlists and deciding what sports channel should be played on the TV in reception.

Rivalling Dan Wray’s outdoor lifestyle, Marcus also has a particular love for outdoor sports, including fishing. He likes to go camping in the mountains at the weekend. 

You can spot his iconic, rugged 4 wheel-drive parked in front of Plyco Fairfield on most days. You may even spot him and Justin sunbathing on its roof some lunchtimes. 

When asked to name an interesting fact about himself, he replied in a serious tone: “I prefer my beanies with a pom-pom on top”. He may well have been the decisive factor in last winter’s win on beanies design. The pom-pom beanies were Plyco's first branded merchandise, and 50 were given to the first customers at our Black Friday sale this year.

Since he is a mad fan of the Collingwood Football Club, it’s no shock that he names Nathan Buckley as his favourite superhero. He says, “Nobody had the shoulders that bloke had for so many years”. You can understand why Marcus champions shouldering responsibility and great gamesmanship.

Another sporting passion is cricket, and watching The Ashes Series is obviously a favourite.

Marcus was born and raised in Melbourne. He finished his secondary school education at Northern Suburbs of Melbourne. Among his greatest achievements in his life is being a self-proclaimed champion at FIFA 2003.

When trying to describe Marcus in a nutshell, fun is an understatement. His outgoing personality brings a great deal of life to the Plyco workplace so we're incredibly thankful to have this legend around!
