With years of experience working in the building products industry, business development manager Sam Brotherton is already delighted that she decided to spread her wings and join Kestrel.
The UPVC fascia and cladding manufacturer is a natural fit for Sam, who will cover the Midlands and South Wales in her new role.
Sam comments: “This is a really exciting time to be joining Kestrel. I’ve been through Kestrel’s product training and spent some time at the headquarters, so now it’s time to get on the road and meet customers.
“I worked with builder’s merchants across the region for a number of years, and it’s been great to reconnect with some familiar faces as well as meet new customers.”
Outside of work, Sam has two daughters, who are literally her greatest cheerleaders, and is a talented amateur photographer who has had her work published.
Sam continues: “Family life keeps me busy. The girls have cheerleading events, so there’s plenty of ferrying them around, and I love photography when I get the opportunity, it’s a great way to bring out my creative side.”
Kestrel sales and marketing manager Owen Thorogood welcomed Sam to Kestrel.
“With a strong knowledge of the area and an understanding of building products, Sam has had a picture-perfect start and we are delighted to have her join team Kestrel,” he comments.
