Hi, Francesca. What is your official role at Aarsleff Ground Engineering?
I am the Business Development Manager, tasked with bringing in new enquires to the business in the South of the country!
Where are you from and what were you doing before joining Aarsleff?
I live in Guildford, Surrey with my husband and two children. My last position was a BDM (sales) role in a health & safety risk management company selling contractor h&s accreditation. I have always been in sales and have had a varied range of products to sell from document management, digital x-ray to drinks systems for the workplace.
What are you looking forward to here?
I am looking forward to learning about Aarsleff and developing the Southern area for new business. I enjoy working and developing relationships with clients and colleagues alike.
What has been your biggest achievement both personally and professionally?
When I was at Agfa I was responsible for the largest order the company had received for digital x-ray at UCLH, this project took four years to come to fruition and I was responsible for overseeing the installation and roll out in the new buildings. In my personal life, my children are very sporty and my son is part of the British swimming development programme.
