We welcome Amy and Paul

We’re delighted to announce that we’ve added two sales professionals to our burgeoning Business Development team. Paul Webb, (41), and Amy Gallagher, (24), have us as Business Development Managers, each with a brief to expand our client list.

Then there were five...

The appointments are the latest evidence of our continuing success, increasing the sales team to five. ‘We’re bursting at the seams at the office’, Sales Manager Paula Bentley acknowledged, ‘because as our portfolio of customers grows, we have to grow with it. Opportunities are increasingly coming our way these days and we really needed high-quality, professional reinforcements to do justice to them. In Amy and Paul, that’s what we’ve got.’

The newcomers have impressive track records in capital equipment negotiations, but both are new to the vending industry. ‘That was a conscious decision’, Paula said. ‘Our business tends to emerge at the conclusion of a consultation process rather than a sales pitch. We need people who are good listeners, who can understand a customer’s requirements and address them with a bespoke solution that works.

‘Paul and Amy fit the bill perfectly, Paula said. ‘They’re extremely polished and professional, but more than that, they’re warm and approachable too; so we’ve every confidence that they’ll continue, with new customers, the North West Vending tradition of providing ‘the personal touch’. That’s been the keystone of our success.’

‘An exciting time.’

For forty years now, we’ve been providing customers large and small with everything from a single water cooler to a fully automated staff restaurant. Additionally, in recent years we’ve introduced a speciality division, Coffee 1652, which brings a premium ‘High Street’ coffee experience within the reach of our customers in the corporate, education and leisure sectors.

‘It’s definitely an exciting time for new recruits to be joining us’, said Managing Director Mike Cowley. ‘We have very high hopes for them both and it’s great to welcome Paul and Amy to our team’, he said.
