British lead manufacturer Midland Lead has made significant appointments to its sales team and added the National Buying Group (NBG) as a new customer.
Industry professional Lynn Street will lead the sales team as the newly appointed sales and marketing manager. As well as gaining 20 years experience in the industry, Street is a director of the initiative Women in Roofing and has experience in all aspects of the roofing supply chain from specification to supply.
Customers will benefit from the continued investment Midland Lead is making to its customer service department, Street says: “The focus this year will be to build on the success of 2017. Midland Lead is a company that really understands excellent customer service and we need to ensure that each and every customer and stakeholder receives the service they have come to expect.”
A strong background in roofing means Street is aware of the pressures the industry is facing and how to deal with them, she says: “The shortage of skilled labour and product knowledge is a major concern and we will be supporting the industry with training and providing the tools to help bring on the next generation.”
Other new appointments to the company’s sales team include Martin Wall and Shelley Lakin as customer relationship advisors and Greg Morrison as regional sales manager for Scotland and the North East. These appointments have been made to ensure the company has dedicated points of contact throughout the country.
The addition of NBG enhances the national coverage for Midland Lead products and support with the 80 NBG independent merchants partners and 300 UK branches now having access to the full range of lead and ancillary products.
