Actis has announced the promotion of East Midlands area sales manager Jemma Harris to northern regional sales director.
Actis says that Ms Harris’ promotion follows an upturn in sales for the company, putting her in control of the growing sales operation in the North of England, North Wales, the East Midlands and the whole of Scotland.
Ms Harris, an ex Naval weapons technician and PT instructor, spent seven years traveling the high seas, is a keen swimmer and cross country runner and has completed three marathons.
Speaking of her appointment, she commented: “My role involves working with the area sales managers to build on our already great working relationships with distributors, architects and builders merchants across the northern half of the UK.
“I also need to ensure the team can brief customers on the technical benefits of each of our products, installation methods and the suitability of particular products for various projects and ensure they have all the support required to offer an exceptional service.”
Her promotion coincides with the appointment of North West area sales manager Karolina Taylor and new UK marketing executive Elise Petitdemange.
