Since January of this year Green-tech has welcomed 16 new starters and seen three promotions.
The new starters are across all departments and include Tim Howcroft who joins on a secondment to fulfil a newly created position as warehouse systems manager. Tim will oversee the setting up of a more advanced warehousing operation which will become effective once the phase 2 warehousing is built for Green-tech.
Joshua Hebden, Joshua Rimmer, John Turton, AJ Paralimnitis and Jack Isaac have all joined the ever-expanding warehouse team. This is to accommodate increased dispatch hours and a notable upturn in the number of orders being processed.
The sales team is being supported with the addition of Emily Watson, Ben Scargill, Declan Rayner, Joe Aikman and Ben Hudson. Green-tech has an ambitious growth strategy and aims to reach £20 million turnover. The addition of these new sales advisors is vital to the success of this.
All support functions have been given increased capacity. Lucy Auckland and Kieran Farmery have joined the marketing team in administration support positions. Sandra Craven joins the accounts team as credit controller and a new position as IT manager has been created which is being fulfilled by Lisa Penny. Susie Hart joined as an interim buyer to cover maternity leave but has agreed to stay on permanently to handle additional procurement duties that this department is handling.
In addition to the new starters there has been several internal moves which has seen Liam Corbett move into the recently opened Green-tech Trade Centre as their trade centre assistant. George Shepherd, one of Green-tech’s apprentices has moved into the marketing department as their online sales administrator and Alasdair Innes is supporting the specification team as a product specification advisor.
Managing Director Rachel Kay said,
“2019 is our 25th trading year and we’ve seen unprecedented growth in our staff numbers. The business is virtually unrecognisable from even five years ago and I’m delighted with the team we have. Even though we are a much larger organisation our core values remain the same and our people remain at the forefront of our success. We have a lively and youthful culture which makes coming into work each day interesting and fun.”
Chairman Richard Kay continues,
“We have a very clear business plan and our first strategic goal is to get the business to £20 million turnover. This won’t happen by chance so we need to prepare for it. Ramping up our staffing and creating essential new posts will enable us to achieve our goals.”
