After a year of growth and success, the Process Instruments sales team has recruited three new members, Wesley Ashworth, Karen Thirlwell and Oliver Riding in order to continue to provide excellent service and back up to its growing number of customers worldwide.
Wesley has worked for Pi for six years developing his skills in several roles within the company. Joining Pi in 2011 as a manufacturing apprentice Wesley learnt how to build, test and maintain the equipment which led to him making occasional site visits to learn how the units worked in the field as well as helping to install the systems.
After Wesley finished his apprenticeship, he was able to transition into the role of Service Engineer, speaking with customers directly and travelling around the world to perform maintenance on the products. This led to Wesley being offered the role of Applications Engineer, travelling around the world to train customers in using the equipment. Wesley has now taken the step to join the international sales team, overseeing sales in South and Central America.
Karen, who has recently joined Pi, brings a wealth of eight years’ experience in technical sales. Karen will be managing all sales from Europe, Africa and the Middle East and will be the first point of contact for customers and distributors. Karen also brings with her a background as a Mechanical Engineer, which has helped her to adapt quickly to her new role within Pi’s sales team.
Oliver previously worked for Pi from 2014 to 2016 as a Graduate Development Chemist and was heavily involved in the early interference testing for both the OzoSense and DioSense Non-Membraned sensors developing a strong understanding of Pi’s products and how they operate.
Oliver has spent the last two years working in Technical Sales for an instrumentation and software company in Sheffield, before returning to Pi with the added expertise that he has developed. Oliver will be overseeing sales to the East of England and is aiming to schedule appointments to visit as many of his customers as possible.
Managing Director, Mike Riding said, “As our customer base grows, the addition of Wesley, Karen and Oliver to the sales team allows us to continually provide the excellent customer service and support that Pi has become known for.”
