Axis Cleaning and Support Services has appointed two new sales managers to spearhead its new business strategy. Richard Barlow, a seasoned executive within the facilities management world, will lead sales in the north, with the south being the responsibility of Steven Willoughby who has particular expertise in the education, retail and office sectors. Both will be supported by an established bid manager, David Downs.
Simon Giles, Axis Group finance director and Axis Cleaning and Support Services COO, says the business has been investing time and effort into formulating its sales strategy for the coming years: “A key part of this has been to build a strong sales team who will be responsible for delivering this. Both Richard and Steven have considerable experience with a number of cleaning and FM companies and I am very excited about working with both of them in the next stage of Axis’s development. They have already hit the ground running in terms of helping drive the business forward.”
