New Scolmore appointments

Scolmore is delighted to welcome Toby Meadows to the role of area sales manager for the West Yorkshire region, and Sarah Naunton to the position of area sales manager for the South Midlands and East Anglia regions.

Having graduated from University with an MSc in Business Leadership and Management, Toby secured his first position as a graduated trainee with a leading electrical wholesaler and soon worked his way up to become an external sales executive, a position he held for more than four years.

In his role with Scolmore he will be utilising the knowledge and experience gained to develop and build new and existing relationships with customers and contractors to drive demand for the breadth of products available from Scolmore. He will pursue a proactive approach to supporting the local contractors aligned to Scolmore’s customers in the region, with joint trade counter events, product training sessions and local ECA branch meetings being undertaken, with the aim of bringing added value to the relationships.

Toby said: “It’s an exciting time to be joining the team at Scolmore. It is a forward thinking company, always looking for ways to enhance its range of products, as well as the service and support it offers to its customers. I am looking forward to a busy and rewarding future with them.”

Sarah, meanwhile, brings with her a wealth of experience having worked in the electrical industry for 16 years and has held sales and new business development roles with a number of leading lighting manufacturers. She started her career in the industry at a time when CFLs were the latest technology and has witnessed first hand the effect of the evolution of the LED market.

In her role with Ovia, Sarah is responsible for developing new and existing customer relationships at an independent and national level, as well as engaging with contractors and specifiers to grow brand and product awareness and to assist where lighting design and specifications are needed.
