NEWBY Leisure has a new sales manager, after the recruitment specialist approached to find one was bowled over by the passion and the products the Humberston firm offers.
Jose Stewart has taken the role with the expanding children’s play equipment provider, changing roles after 20 years in the position-filling business.
The Wilton Road Industrial Estate team has grown substantially in 17 years of operations, and now employs 25 people in installation and manufacturing, with further growth targeted.
It has seen a key position created, alongside sales and marketing manager Ashley Spink, who joined three years ago.
Ms Stewart said: “The passion that Neil and Alistair have for the business is great, and the products are so impressive.
“You have to believe in a product when you are selling it. I had a tour round the business units and I found the passion was there with the whole team.
“It is interesting, exciting and a lot of young people have been brought in from Grimsby Institute on apprenticeships.
“I was really impressed with how it has grown.
“I am very proud of local businesses and what we do, I like to shout about it.
“Neil asked it I would find a sales person, I came out so passionate about the business and what it does, I asked if he would consider me.”
The company recently added a fifth unit at Bradley’s Corner, as work with he education sector flourishes, providing not just play equipment but entire environments, while an off-the-shelf e-commerce site also brings in sales.
“We have a lot of business in Lincolnshire, a lot is based on relationships built over the years, and I would like to be able to expand what has been achieved across Yorkshire, into Doncaster, Rotherham and Hull,” added Ms Stewart.
