Freefoam Building Products has announced two new members of its sales team.
Shaw Steve is supporting customers and developing new business in the South Wales, Bristol and Gloucestershire area. With over 20 years experience in sales and 18+ years as a manager and buyer in the heating, plumbing and bathroom industry, Steve brings a lot of knowledge and expertise to the team. Skills such as selling, negotiating and merchandising will mean he is well placed to support Freefoam’s customer base. Steve has worked with all types of customers, from sole traders and SME’s to large national companies and major housebuilders. Out of work Steve is a keen sportsman, regularly running and playing football for the Welsh Veterans League.
Kim Rolph joins Freefoam to work in the South East region of the UK, getting to know existing customers and working to develop new leads and business for them. Kim did a degree in psychology and has worked as an external support role at Knauf Insulation for builders merchants and large distribution chains. She also worked across Australia for two years in a sales role, so certainly knows a bit about travelling! Kim brings customer service and merchandising skills to the business and says she is looking forward to building relationships with existing customers, working with the experienced sales team at Freefoam and supporting independent stockists in a business development role.
Richard Jackson National Sales Manager commented “I’m looking forward to working with Steve and Kim. We’ve got a great mix of team members in our sales team, some who have come from more conventional backgrounds like Steve and some like Kim who are fairly new to the industry and we value both. Essentially we’re looking for people who are enthusiastic, willing to learn and will grow with us. Both of these roles have become vacant following internal promotion’s, which also highlights our commitment to developing and supporting team members to reach their potential.”
