Introducing our new Sales Executive… Gemma

Many of our services here at Avon Material Supplies (AMS) are used by the construction industry, whether they are using one of our skips for waste management, or come to us for their subbases and concrete. We are ever-expanding to provide high-quality services to our construction clients.

To help us do this, we have appointed Gemma, a new Sales Executive dedicated to our construction-based customers. In this article, we wanted to introduce you to Gemma.

Tell us a little bit about yourself, your experience in the industry

I have been working in the construction industry for about 18 years. My previous roles have included selling a range of aggregates, concrete, mortar and screed for both national and independent companies.

How did you get to work in the industry?

I started in the industry as an internal Sales Rep with another aggregates company, I was there for 5 years before deciding that I wanted to take the next step into the field of sales.

Construction is one of those industries that once you’re in, it’s almost impossible to get out of and you find that many people that you know circulate around the industry but never leave it. I am one of those people and 18 years on, I’m still here having gained a wealth of knowledge over many different product lines.

The industry is so diverse that it means each and every job is different, I think that is why it is so easy to stay in it.

Tell us a bit about what you will be doing at AMS.

My role at AMS is to promote the variety of services the company offers to the construction industry.

They offer a great selection of services, from their range of aggregates, all of which have different uses and are fit for different purposes, to their BSI-accredited concrete, different-size skips and RoRos and, of course, their cartaway service.

I know the industry and I am not a stranger to some of the products, so I am looking forward to diving in.

What are your aims and ambitions in this role?

I am here to grow our construction site services and our client base. At the moment, my goal is to increase sales across the full range of services that AMS offers.

While doing this, I want to make sure that the customer experience with us is second to none to create a customer relationship that is built on trust and loyalty.

What do you hope to bring to this role?

As mentioned, I have experience in the industry that I obviously want to utilise to increase sales. Aside from that, I want to bring some joined-up thinking to help expand the services further as well as some high-energy and enthusiasm to the role.

What excites you most about working at AMS?

Having spent the last few years working for a national company, AMS offers a different energy.

The atmosphere in the office and the camaraderie between everyone is unique. There is always laughter in the office.

It is also nice to be working with local businesses, as this presents a bit more of an opportunity to get to know them and build up some great relationships with our clients.

AMS offer a whole range of services, some of which I know like the back of my hand and others are newer to me. So, I am looking forward to learning about those new services while developing more knowledge in areas that I already know.

How would you describe yourself in 3 words?

This is an interesting question…I think I would use outgoing, adventurous and lively.

Tell us something about yourself that not many people know.

I love Bees and hope to be able to keep a few colonies in the near future…I’m still learning about them though!
