Hill’s Panel Products (HPP) has expanded its sales force with the appointment of a dedicated area sales manager for Scotland – a first for the business.
Geraldine Thomson has joined the Oldham-based manufacturer and distributor of board, doors, fittings and accessories, with more than 32 years’ experience of the KBB sector.
Most of her career has been spent in territory-based sales roles, at businesses including BA Components and Uform.
Geraldine Thomson said: “We feel there is a lot of untapped potential in Scotland, so it is better to have someone on the ground who can focus on the territory.
“I’ve found from experience you can grow the business much better when you’re on the patch.”
She added: “I love getting out and meeting people, no two days are the same because no two customers are the same – this is where I’m the happiest, dealing business to business, telling them about new products and sharing advice and opinions with them.”
HPP sales director Gareth Evans commented: “We are delighted to welcome Geraldine to the team. She has extensive knowledge of, and a passion for, the KBB industry, and creates a great rapport with her customers. We think she is the perfect match for HPP!”
