Hardware manufacturer VBH, the company behind the greenteQ brand, has been busy in 2022 recruiting new staff and giving existing team members new responsibilities where their proven skill-sets can be brought to the fore.

Simon Monks, MD of VBH gave us the following overview of the ‘movers and shakers’ at the company.

“We believe that we have the best team of any hardware company. It is a healthy mix of experience and youth, with all the benefits of both. We’ve had a re-shuffle, carried out some promotions and brought in some new faces this year to enhance what was already a successful team.

“Steve Thomas has moved from an internal position to become area sales representative for South West England. His customers are already benefitting from Steve’s years of manufacturing experience.

“His sales team colleagues Tyler Shutts, Earl Tate and Colin Thomas have all been promoted to regional manager, for Northern England, South East England, and Wales respectively, following exceptional long term performance.

“In Scotland Pamela Paterson is now operations manager at our East Kilbride site, with responsibility for the day-to-day running of the depot.

“Internally at the Gillingham HQ, Karen Campbell moves to the position of internal sales-co-ordinator, linking the activities of our sales and marketing teams, and we have bolstered our customer service team with the recruitment of Leah Organ and Georgia Rowlatt. Both are new to the industry but are already getting great reviews from customers. Most recently, Tom Nichols joined our accounts team to help ensure that everything behind the scenes runs smoothly.

“As well as promoting from within, we have been recruiting to ensure that we continue to exceed customer expectations now we are faced with evermore challenges outside of the industry’s control. Simon Eshelby returns to VBH in the new position of distribution & systems house manager, following six years away. It’s great to have Simon, and all his technical expertise, back at VBH.

“We have just received news that we have been short listed in no less than 10 categories at the NFA awards. It’s the people that make our company tick, so this success is a tribute to the VBH Team.”
