Online electrical retailer AO has strengthened its B2B housebuilder team with the appointment of Gary Holt and Andrew Robinson as Business Development Managers.
Robinson, who covers sales in the North and Scotland, joins AO from furniture manufacturer VitrA UK and has previous experience in the housebuilder market in a Business Manager role at Made Better by Ellis. Prior to this he spent 16 years as a National Sales Manager at bathroom manufacturer Accent Kitchens, where he was responsible for securing group agreements with many regional developers.
Holt, who covers sales in the South of England, joins from German-based manufacturer Westag and Getalit AG where he spent 5 years as Area Sales Manager for Retail before moving into a new role as Business Development Manager. In the worktop industry, he worked in the developer and housebuilder sectors.
Anthony Sant, MD of AO Business, said: “We’re thrilled to have both Gary and Andy joining us on our mission to improve the way that housebuilders purchase appliances. With their wealth of sales experience and contacts in the industry, we are now in an even better position to provide a solution to the everyday challenges facing housebuilders.”
