Meet the Team.... Sales
Monday 21st January 2019
Meet the people who go above and beyond to exceed your expectations!
Sales Engineer – Tony Ward
Tony joined Filton in 1971 as an apprentice, straight from school. He spent time in various roles in production, as a draughtsman and as Assistant Works Manager before settling as a Sales Engineer. Tony is now Filton’s only Sales Engineer out in the field covering the whole of the UK and Ireland. He has gained valuable experience over this time and has seen our products in many different industries and on many different machines. If needed Tony can visit our customers to advise about replacing competitor unions and is also able to offer advice on the best union for the job.
“Travelling around the country every day is different. Helping customers choose the best
method of curing problems is satisfying and appreciated. Many customers I have known
for over 30 years so I am greeted like an old friend when I visit.”
Sales Support Team Leader – Jill Geary
Jill joined Filton in 1976, after a year at technical college. Jill’s knowledge and understanding of the Filton products is invaluable. She is able to advise customers over the telephone and by email, but where necessary will refer the questions to Tony Ward or our Design Office. Jill is the main point of contact for quotations or enquiries; however, the whole team are able to cover all elements of sales administration.
“My job involves working with a great team of people. There is a good rapport throughout
and this in turn I believe, results in everyone taking pride in ensuring that we
provide an excellent service to all of our customers UK and worldwide.”
Sales Support – Claire Gibbs
Claire joined Filton in 1988, another straight from school. Claire left to have a family but returned in 2011 to re-join the Sales Team. She is our despatch specialist but again has gained a wide knowledge of our products over her time at Filton and is able to cover all elements of sales administration.
“I enjoy working for Filton as we have a fantastic group of people who are always
willing to help and go above and beyond to make sure everyone is happy.
I would call Filton my extended family who can always
put a smile on my face”
Sales Support – Nicole Clarke
Nicole joined Filton early in 2017 part time. Nicole’s specialty is customer orders and she has got to know our regular customers and their needs well. Nicole continues to learn about the Filton products and their applications. As with the whole team she is able to cover quotations, repairs and despatch easily.
“I enjoy working at Filton because we all work well as a team, to
make sure we reach our customers expectations. Everyone is friendly and
always willing to help each other.”
Sales Support – Charly Hackney
Charly is our newest addition, joining Filton in July 2018. Charly works closely with Tony, planning his diary and preparing quotations for customers he has visited. However, she also researches potential new customers and industries. Charly has taken on the Filton social media role to increase our presence online. Charly is quickly gaining knowledge of the Filton products and is able to fully support the rest of the team.
“Even though I only started working for Filton recently I was welcomed by everyone.
We all help each other to ensure we meet our customer’s expectations.”
