It’s with great pleasure that Knauf Insulation can announce that Jo Callow, Central Sales Support, has been awarded the BMJ/BMF Young Supplier Achiever of the Year award after her hard work and achievements were recognised by the judges and Knauf Insulation’s merchant customers.
When Jo joined Knauf Insulation she made an immediate impact on its merchant business and has since attained a considerable amount of achievements – her work rate is second to none. Jo manages to visit and spend time with over 150 branches a month and still finds time to visit customers’ head offices and internal meetings, which certainly demonstrates her commitment to the company and merchant customers.
Jo commented: “I still can’t quite believe that I have won this award, I’m absolutely delighted! We have a strong merchant team within Knauf Insulation that is wholly dedicated to providing expert support and advice to our customers on all aspects of their business – and it’s this that makes our relationship so strong and successful. It’s a demanding job but I love the challenge of seeing how I can make a difference to our customers’ business.”
Of Jo’s many achievements during her time at Knauf Insulation, there were three key projects that she undertook which had a positive impact for the customer, increased product awareness, reduced transport costs and provided significant cost savings.
Graham Wroe, Sales Director UK – Building and Distribution, at Knauf Insulation said: “Well done to Jo, she thoroughly deserved the win after her continued efforts, hard work and determination that applies to her job. We’re very proud of Jo and our dedicated resource teams that are entirely committed to serving and supporting our merchant customers day in, day out.”
The BMJ/BMF Young Supplier Achiever of the Year award aims to recognise the achievements of those young suppliers who have worked with their merchant customers to benefit both sides of the business.
