With an ambitious business growth target of doubling their turnover within 3 years, AMES UK have moved to strengthen their account management team with the appointment of a new Sales Director to focus on large multiple retailers. Rob Parker will lead the 17-strong team driving business acquisition and growth in the Grocery, DIY, High Street, Export and Online channels.
Rob joins the business with an impressive, broad set of business skills and experience, having begun his career in Finance and Data Management, working through to Marketing Insight and latterly moving into Account Management. He knows the DIY and retail sector especially well with experience of working across the channel from DIY Sheds to Online, Grocery and High Street Retail. Rob gained his extensive experience thanks to several years at Stanley Black & Decker in various roles.
“The most exciting challenge will be working with the team to develop our long-term vision and setting goals to exceed our customer expectations ensuring AMES UK are the partner of choice” says Rob “The integration of the three AMES UK businesses is a great opportunity to deliver a service that is far greater than we can offer today. In the immediate future, this requires us to be highly adaptable and agile. I want our customers to benefit from our extensive portfolio and the huge potential an integrated AMES UK can bring.”
Paul North, AMES UK Managing Director added “I’m delighted Rob has joined us at AMES UK and I can already feel his impact on the team which is driving huge change in our organisation. His unique experience and insight into how a business can support and develop the customer relationship is absolutely key.”
