ATG Access, the world’s leading innovator of road blocker, bollard and vehicle barrier systems, has appointed two key hires, including a new sales co-ordinator , as part of its ambitious growth plans to expand into international markets.
Faye Edwards joins ATG Access with over twenty years of experience in sales and customer service management, having previously spent nine years at landscaping manufacturer, Marshalls, managing key internal sales and customer service teams.
During her previous employment, Faye moved up the ranks quickly and was promoted several times before becoming an internal sales account manager, where she was responsible for overseeing and increasing sales of posts, rails and signage.
Prior to working at Marshalls, Faye held a key position within the sales department of Royal British Legion Industries, selling signs directly to councils and private customers. Her first experience of the manufacturing sector came from her time at a Swiss paper company based in Tunbridge Wells.
In her new role at ATG Access, Faye will be providing experience, knowledge and consistency for the ATG sales team. She will also be utilising her extensive experience in customer account management to grow sales of ATG’s Surface Guard system, a temporary surface-mounted security barrier, following the emerging ‘vehicle as a weapon’ attacks.
Alongside the appointment of Faye Edwards, ATG Access has also recruited a new digital marketing assistant to help grow the ATG brand nationally and internationally. Edward Roberts will be responsible for generating in-bound leads and increasing conversion rates and unique website visitor numbers nationally and internationally. Edward has also been tasked with expanding ATG’s online shop to become the ‘go-to’ for telescopic bollard products across the global security industry.
Both appointments will play a crucial role in helping ATG Access achieve its aim of expanding the business by 30% year-on-year for the next three years. Its ambitious plans will see the business grow at a rapid rate as it continues to expand into new markets and develop more products to appeal to different customer bases around the world. ATG Access has aready grown overall revenue by just under 50% in the last three years.
Glenn Cooper, CEO of ATG Access, said: “Over the next few years, we plan to develop our products and services significantly so that we can continue to meet the specific needs and requirements of global markets. The appointments of both Faye and Edward will be extremely valuable in helping us to achieve these goals. Faye brings a wealth of customer service and sales experience, which will help to grow our Hostile Vehicle Mitigation sales in the UK and beyond, while Edward will help us to develop a more professional digital footprint across the globe.”
Commenting on her appointment, Faye Edwards said: “My skills and expertise lie in customer account management, particularly within the manufacturing sector, and I really enjoy overseeing product sales and the finer, technical product details. The role at ATG Access seemed like the perfect fit for my skillset and allows me to become involved with the client facing work that I love, including building client relationships, driving forward sales and being part of a dedicated, expert team.”
