Stormwater Management Ltd would like to extend a warm welcome to Simon Wellings. Simon has recently joined our team as Technical Sales.
As a key member of our sales team Simon will be building strong relationships with our customers by assisting them on a daily basis. Within his role he will soon be offering CPD seminars and visiting our customers and project sites to assist with technical enquiries.
We asked Simon a few questions about himself…
- What experience/education do you have within this industry?
I have 27 years within Aggregate Industries working upon different disciplines for “Masterblock”, “Bradstone” and “Charcon”. I started as an Office Manager responsible for Building Block, Flag & Kerb and Concrete Pipe sales. I then focused on building blocks and included external sales within the role before becoming Territory Sales Manager. I worked for Charcon as Specification Manager for several years – enjoying working with Landscape Architects, Consultant Engineers and Local Authorities.
- What made you join Stormwater Management Ltd?
From the initial interview, the Company and importantly the people working here, showed me that this is a remarkable and enviable employer. Working here is a refreshing and enlightening experience – I am looking forward to the challenges ahead and growing with the Company.
- What do you enjoy the most about what you do?
At the moment I am literally starting out on my journey and enjoying every moment. I am looking forward to building relationships with our existing customers and new customers alike. Quite simply people matter in any walk of life and the commercial arena is no different.
- How would you describe yourself?
Dedicated, determined, well balanced and committed. I believe in courtesy and good manners in any environment. Having said that, don’t take things too seriously and like a good laugh.
- What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
Despite my years, I am an avid bass guitarist playing in a local band. I had my first guitar when I was eight and I’m still at it! I also enjoy the Great Outdoors – especially walking coastal paths when I can. Otherwise it’s the Peak District hiking.
- What is your favourite film?
I am a bit of an old softie – It’s A Wonderful Life, directed by Frank Capra. The title itself is very meaningful!
- What is your favourite meal and where is the best place to eat it?
I prefer the likes of a good steak, cooked at home or a Domino’s Pizza
- And anything else you’d like to add
I am a volunteer for the Anthony Nolan Trust and was pleasantly surprised to see how much charitable and community support is given by the Company – fantastic!All News
