Meet the Newest Members of the Tingdene Sales Team
Over the last few months, the Tingdene sales team has grown exponentially with four new recruits joining the sales team on the road. The additional support means that Tingdene can reach more customers and clients further afield and provide a tailored one-on-one service to each of these. The local knowledge each of the new sales team brings means that Tingdene can continue to develop its understanding and support of holiday and residential parks across the UK.
Kerry joined Tingdene as a Sales Representative and was quickly promoted to Business Development Manager; a sign of her fantastic work ethic and determination to succeed in the park home and holiday lodge industry. Kerry is based in Hull and works throughout the North of England and North Wales. Prior to joining Tingdene Kerry worked in the leisure industry for two years at Willerby as Business Development Manager. Kerry’s move to Tingdene was prompted by her desire to progress her career and develop a better understanding of both the leisure and residential markets.
Simon Sleep joined Tingdene as Business Development Manager North to develop the brand and partner relationships in Scotland and the North of England. He started his career as a successful Sales Advisor at Bourne Leisure back in early 2000, from there he progressed to Parkdean Holidays managing an array of parks in the UK. During his first year at the company he won ‘Sales Manager of the Year’. Simon’s interest in learning more about the industry led him to moving into manufacturing. As Area Sales Manager at Pemberton Park & Leisure Homes he supported a number of parks and groups in Scotland. During his time at Tingdene he plans to develop a greater company and brand presence in his native Scotland working with park home and holiday lodge developments as well as special projects.
Teresa is based in mid-Devon and is Tingdene’s newest Sales Representative. She started her career in the leisure industry in 2014 and went onto Pathfinder Homes as Head of Processing ensuring that specifications were produced in accordance with the customers’ wishes and complying with technical, buying and CAD departments. Prior to this she worked in the static caravan dealership as a Sales Administrator and Co-ordinator providing sales support and managing supplier relationships. Teresa was keen to move onto a sales role saying ‘A sales role is what I have wanted to do for a long time, I admire a company who are of a high standard, are innovative and are constantly looking to the future. I know that I can make a difference so that Tingdene can grow in presence across the South’.
David began his career in the leisure industry in 1990 at BK Blue Bird caravan manufacturers. He went onto Pemberton Leisure Homes in Wigan and then Willerby Holiday Homes where he managed the South and South West working closely with many hire fleet operators. He remained there for 20 years. Seeking a fresh challenge, David moved into a sales role at an Isuzu truck dealership. He returned to the leisure industry becoming Sales Manager at Waterside Holiday Park Group giving him a glimpse of both park and manufacturer aspects of the leisure business. David’s move to Tingdene was as a result of him enjoying the fast paced nature of sales and being ‘on the road’. With his wealth of experience in the leisure industry he looks forward to developing the Tingdene brand across the south of the UK within his role as Business Development Manager. He brings with him a fantastic knowledge of design and product development.
