Derbyshire based Midland Lead has announced the appointment of Kyle Hazeldine as the sales and marketing manager.
Hazledine, who takes over the reins from Lynn Street, started work as a telesales assistant at Midland Lead in 2015, and has worked in every area of the business from operations through to key account manager.
As an active member of the BMF (Builders Merchants Federation) Young Merchants Group, he is known for flying the flag of lead’s unique qualities within the roofing and construction sector, actively supports the CO2nstructZero campaign that promotes sustainable practices, and has recently been announced as the BMBI expert representing the lead sector, where he will regularly share comments to a national audience.
He said: “From the moment I walked through the door on my first day, I knew I wanted to establish my career here long-term. Immediately the team were welcoming, and I felt part of a family business with big ambitions. Midland Lead has a strong belief in career progression and after starting as a telesales assistant, with support and training, I worked with the Regional Sales Manager’s and then progressed to RSM myself where I covered large parts of the UK. My main role was to reintroduce clients to Midland Lead’s range of roofing and construction products, and I believe this progression helped me gain the experience to contribute to the senior management team.
“Since my new role was announced internally, I have been overwhelmed with support, especially from colleagues and customers that I have established good relationships with over the years. I learnt so much from Lynn who was a great role model and mentor to work alongside as she had years of experience, our working relationship was strong, and I know I am filling some big shoes here.”
Boudewijn Tuinenburg, Managing Director of Midland Lead said: “With his successful track record in sales and customer development, Kyle has continuously shown an appetite for progression and an ability to learn and share ideas, we know that Kyle has the drive and knowledge to contribute to our business ambitions. We would also like to thank Lynn for her valuable contribution over the last four years.”
