Paul Ashby, Regional Sales Director, Residential - South, Geberit UK
Geberit Sales UK
After leaving school, I completed one of the government run training scheme in Sales and have found myself in this environment ever since. In my previous roles, I have worked as a Sales Manager visiting Merchants, Contractors, Developers, Consultants & Architects which is very similar to my first position within Geberit.
My career so far with Geberit has both been very challenging and very rewarding. I am very proud to have worked on the Olympics on various parts of the park including the Main Stadium, the Aquatics Centre, the Handball Arena, Eaton Manor and the Orbit Tower.
I have also been involved in various hotel and commercial projects such as One Hyde Park and 45 Park Lane (part of The Dorchester Hotel) where I had to spend a lot of time training and advising contractors on best products for the job and lots of on-site training. In July 2012, I was promoted to Regional Sales Manager for the Southern region. Every day is different and so it never gets boring and I always have a new challenge. With the help of all at Geberit, I achieved these challenges and in turn our customers get what they need and the company continues to grow. In February 2015, I was promoted to Regional Sales Director for the Southern region which is now a bigger opportunity to progress with Geberit.
Since the integration of Sanitec there have been a number of new opportunities for all at Geberit and I was lucky enough to be given the chance to develop further when I was offered the role as Regional Sales Director South for the Residential team. For me this will be an addition to my knowledge adding the residential sector to my personal portfolio.
