Keylite Roof Windows (Keylite), which is part of The Keystone Group, has promoted its longstanding area sales manager, Lee Squelch, to national account manager. Lee is now responsible for Keylite’s national housebuilder customers, working closely with the likes of Barratt and Taylor Wimpey to develop and deliver profitable sales strategies across the UK.
Having been with the division for four and a half years, Lee’s product knowledge and relationships, both in and outside of the business, make him the ideal fit for his new role, according to Keylite. Previously having covered south Wales, Bristol and Gloucestershire as Keylite’s area sales manager, Lee has worked closely with local builders and merchants in those regions. Lee also saw his regional Buildbase branch reach the number one spot in the UK for Keylite sales. LBS Builders’ Merchants in south and west Wales has seen its turnover increase fourfold during Lee’s tenure.
“Whether I’m discussing products one-on-one with contractors on site, or working with UK-wide procurement teams, it’s important to me to make sure everyone feels supported,” said Lee. “My progression at Keylite has already been something I’m very proud of. I came in as a ‘rough and ready’ salesperson and really feel like Keylite has invested in me as a person. I’ve had funding for different training programmes, been a mentor for many new starters, and it’s important for me to put that investment back into the company.
“Keylite has built a solid reputation with the nation’s housebuilders, and my initial goal in the first 12 months is to keep the momentum going on all the amazing projects and relationships we have developed. Progression is really important to me, but I want to progress within Keylite. It’s never boring, as market leaders in innovation and product development there’s always something new coming out for us to be excited about.”
Matthew King, Keylite’s UK sales director, added: “In his four and half years at Keylite, Lee has continued to demonstrate a positive outlook, a desire to both develop himself and others around him, and has achieved his commercial objectives thanks to his ability to build strong relationships with his customers and colleagues.” For more information about Keylite Roof Windows, including new roles, visit keyliteroofwindows.com, call 01283 200 158 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
