Gledhill appoints national sales manager

Published:  21 January, 2014

Gledhill has appointed Sharon Rawlins to the position of national sales manager, as part of an ongoing investment and expansion strategy designed to further develop the company’s market share.

Having worked for Twyford Bathrooms and more recently Ideal Standard International, Ms Rawlins brings more than 20 years of senior sales experience to the Gledhill team, at both a regional and national level.

Her role will involve managing and supporting this successful team as it continues to deliver ‘best in class’ service to customers and to further develop relationships, particularly amongst Gledhill’s traditionally strong merchant customer base.

“With extensive experience working with trade, retail, independent and national trading customers, I understand the importance of ensuring we have the right product for the right application,” said Ms Rawlins. “We want our customers’ experience with Gledhill to be an enjoyable one so they continue to grow with us. A significant part of my new role will be supporting the Gledhill customers that sell our products to the end users.

“Gledhill has an enviable reputation as a family-run company with a long-standing track record of innovative product development, accountable manufacturing qualities and first-class customer service.

“I am joining the company at a very exciting time, with our continued investment program at our headquarters in Blackpool and the imminent introduction of the Renewable Heat Incentive creating new opportunities for both Gledhill and our customers. I look forward to contributing to the company’s ongoing business development and success.”

Gledhill’s managing director Jason Hobson said: “We’re delighted to welcome Sharon to the team as we continue to capitalise on the strengths of our manufacturing capabilities, national depot network and broad range of innovative products. She is a welcome addition to the team and her experience will prove invaluable to both Gledhill and our customers.”
