Setcrete has appointed two new area sales representatives to provide sales support to builders and the company’s expanding network of builders’ merchant customers. Matt Smith will operate in the north of England and Scotland, while Robert Sheppard will cover South Wales and the south-west of England.
The appointments follow sustained growth in sales of Setcrete’s range of high-performance floor levelling compounds and repair mortars and an increase in the number of merchants stocking Setcrete products.
Smith joins Setcrete from a leading building materials supplier, where he was responsible for the account management of a portfolio of merchant customers, as well as direct sales to key accounts within the group. He holds a Masters in Business Management from the University of Hull.
Sheppard was formerly area sales manager for a recognised manufacturer, having previously been an area sales and general manager for different companies.
Robert Sheppard said: “Having worked in construction sales for my whole career, the opportunity to work with Setcrete and their industry-leading products held huge appeal for me and I’m delighted to be become part of the team.”
Matt Smith added: “Setcrete’s approach to business combines industry-leading product development with traditional family values, so you can’t help but be enthused about the products and have the confidence of knowing there’s a supportive team behind you.” Matt is married to long-term partner Emma-Jayne and together they have a ‘cheeky’ three-year-old son, Jesse. A keen footballer, Matt is also an amateur magician, as well as a self-proclaimed ‘nerdish-fan’ of Harry Potter, Marvel and DC Comics films and games.
