Visqueen has appointed Georgia Oxbrough as Business Development Manager (BDM) for the North of England and Scotland. Georgia’s promotion is the latest step in a blossoming six-year career with the gas protection and structural waterproofing specialist.
It began straight from school when she applied, successfully, for an NVQ apprenticeship in business and administration.
Since then Georgia has risen through the ranks from Key Accounts Support & Development Executive to Senior Specification Support & Development Executive, then Construction team leader looking after a team of 10 people.
As a BDM, she will have a more external role, with duties including building close relationships with merchant customers, distributors and end-users to increase awareness and ensure the message gets across that it pays to invest in quality solutions and products.
“There are tremendous opportunities for growth in the sector,” she said. “I have already gained experience working with customers in the North in a previous role, and I’m excited to have the opportunity to build on that with a broader remit covering Scotland.”
Laura Guy, National Sales Manager for Visqueen, said: “As a company, we are committed to investing in our people as well as in the development of our range of market leading products.
“That includes creating a pathway for talented employees such as Georgia, who joined as an apprentice and whose hard work has been recognised with her appointment as BDM for the North and Scotland.”
