With a background in mechanical engineering, Sam’s early career saw him move into a sales role as a representative for a shopfitting company in London and the Home Counties. This gave him the opportunity to market the company’s products and services to a wide range of retail clients, from supermarkets to craft shops. Sam really enjoyed this varied role, which saw him finding storage solutions for tradesmen one day and fitting out pharmacies the next.
In 2007, Sam took on business development and account management responsibilities for a well-established mezzanine company. He won several prestigious contracts for them, before taking on the challenge of setting up a new division of a storage systems company from scratch.
More recently, Sam has managed and driven business development initiatives for storage and retail fitout companies covering the whole of the UK and Ireland. Previous experience helped him to increase new commercial opportunities for his employers. Sam puts his success down to cultivating open and supportive relationships with current and potential clients.
It was Sam’s deep understanding of the importance of customer service and his knowledge of how to tailor the end product to individual requirements that made employing Sam a very easy decision for Space Industries. With the expertise to provide bespoke solutions and to give informed advice on projects, along with a passion for customer care, Sam has slotted very easily into the team.
Sam prides himself on choosing employers who deliver to a high standard of quality and who put their clients first. Sam says, “I really enjoy working at Space Industries alongside such a professional group of people. We have the same hunger and drive to deliver projects on time and to budget. I am finding it easy to sell services that are so customer-orientated.”
When not at work, Sam keeps fit through swimming and enjoys spending quality time with his family. Another of his passions is a love of cars – which is lucky, as Sam spends a lot of his working week visiting clients, so it’s just as well he loves driving!
