Jemma is now in control of the growing sales operation in the North of England, North Wales, the East Midlands and the whole of Scotland.
Her promotion follows an upturn in sales for Actis, whose ‘one stop shop’ Hybrid range is proving increasingly popular with builders looking for a combination of thermal efficiency, ease and speed of installation, cleanliness and lack of waste – plus the need for only one company to supply insulation and insulating membranes.
Jemma and her counterpart in the southern region, Mark Cooper, say an important increase in the timber frame market and an updated BS standard for park homes, is seeing a marked increase in sales of its three Hybrid products.
Jemma, an ex Naval weapons technician and PT instructor, spent seven years travelling the high seas, is a keen swimmer and cross country runner and has completed three marathons.
“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.
