MORPETH woman Vivienne Gibbs has revved up her career with a newly created role at growing family garage equipment firm Gott Technical Services.
After seeing a 35% increase in turnover last year, Gott is motoring ahead with the recruitment of Vivienne as its first ever client development executive. She will extend and manage new repair service business opportunities and retain relationships with its existing service contract client base of over 500 garages and multi-site motor retail groups.
The mother of three, originally from Gateshead, previously worked as a sales account manager for hygiene company Cannon for nine years before joining Gott.
She said: “This is a brand new role for the company so there is a lot of room for me to push it into new territories, which I am very excited about. Gott is already seeing expansion in areas outside of the North East like Scotland and Cumbria and the advancements in low carbon vehicle equipment technology is another growth sector I’ll be accelerating.”
Gott Technical Services director Ian Gott said: “Last year was a great year for growth, especially with new contracts we picked up from various local authorities, and the completion of Glasgow’s newest Nissan dealership. We want to continue driving forward this year, as such we’re looking to build new relationships with new garages all of the time, which is where Vivienne comes in.
“We plan to extend the team by also recruiting equipment field sales representatives in different parts of the UK whilst Vivienne focuses purely on the promotion of our service related products throughout the whole sales cycle, including after sales care.”
Gott Technical Services is in its 31st year of business, and employs 19 staff from its Morpeth headquarters. It provides garage technical equipment and maintenance to the automotive trade.
