Greyland continues expansion with new additions to sales force
Greyland has been joined by two highly respected sales people with a huge amount of industry experience between them.
Samantha (Sam) Farr, and Phil Wallen, have now been taken on by Greyland, in order “to cope with the massive demand for cleaning chemicals”, which the global pandemic has brought about.
Sam Farr entered the industry 25 years ago and has sales and managerial experience in contract cleaning, distribution, and cleaning chemical manufacturing. At Greyland, Sam will be looking after Distributors in many regions of the UK.
As a National Accounts Manager with almost 40 years experience in cleaning chemicals and machine sales, Phil Wallen is a well-known face in the industry. Phil has taken a new business development role at Greyland.
Both Sam and Phil are very much looking forward to renewing their relationships with customers up and down the country after several months of Lockdown.
Sam: “We see this as a golden opportunity to advise and guide the industry in these days of heightened awareness of cleaning and hygiene, and in particular the products that can make a real difference, such as Greyland’s Spray & Wipe Ultra, a full virucidal disinfectant cleaner tested to eliminate both Coronavirus and MRSA after 1 minute; and also Greyland’s new Maximum Eco Range, containing fully professional recycled material in its all-UK sourced packaging. Far from adopting a kind of war-time bunker mentality in these difficult times, we cannot wait to get back out there.”
Phil: “While many types of businesses have struggled with Lockdown, there are major FM accounts whose diversity of customer base has ensured continuance of their business model. Video conferencing is well enough between work colleagues within an organisation, but in sales, it’s a truism that ‘people buy from people’, so the intention is to safely re-engage with customers without further delay.”
Delighted with his two latest additions, Greyland CEO Richard Dyson says: “With all the
abilities the new expanded Greyland sales team has in knowledge, experience, and professionalism, at both distributor and major level end users, I strongly believe that Greyland is now poised to advance to the next stage in its development.”
