Thorite appoints a new Key Account Manager for Bolton & Rochdale

Thorite appoints a new Key Account Manager for Bolton & Rochdale

Monday 3rd September 2018

Gillian Dawson has joined Thorite as a Key Account Manager and is responsible for the Bolton and Rochdale areas.

Gillian’s career path to date has been an unusual one. Having decided that University was not for her, Gillian applied for and was accepted as an Apprentice Engineer with BT. That Gillian was the very first female Apprentice in the Engineering department was an important milestone for both Gillian and BT. After completing her Apprenticeship Gillian decided on a change of career and joined one of Thorite’s competitors on Internal Sales. She then worked her way up to Assistant Manager, a position that she held for nine years. For the 12 months prior to joining Thorite, Gillian was the Regional Account Manager with responsibility for expanding existing accounts and developing new businness.

On her appointment with Thorite, Gillian said:

“Having worked at both branch level and face-to-face with major customers I realised very early on that the most important facet of my job was customer service. That everyone here at Thorite feels much the same way is really important to me.”

In her spare time, Gillian enjoys walking and reading and also house renovation she claims that she has lost count of the number of times that neighbours have asked her if she has shares in local skip-hire companies.
