Roger Green, entrepreneur and CEO of Musselburgh-based Spotless Commercial Cleaning, Scottish water retailer Brightwater, and ACE Recycling, has appointed Andy Gook as group sales manager to drive business growth across the UK for Spotless. Gook previously worked for Green’s water retail company Brightwater as its partner channel manager. Prior to that he held senior sales roles at Clearwater Analytics and at PHS Water Logic for 12 years.
Roger Green said: “Andy has an enviable track record of building relationships with customers and suppliers and I was keen to bring that expertise into my business. I approached him in 2016 and asked him to work for Brightwater as its sales development manager. He has done a magnificent job growing new business for Brightwater by developing affiliate relationships and partnerships. In 2017, through Andy’s guidance, our partner channel generated new business worth over £1.25 million a year, up 350% on the previous year. I wanted to expand his role so appointing him as our new group sales manager gives him the opportunity to take on the added responsibility of managing sales for Spotless and our office recycling business, ACE Recycling.” Andy Gook said: “Roger is a great believer in developing his staff and encouraging them to reach their full potential. My new role allows me to draw on my previous experience as a regional sales manager for PHS as I have taken on responsibility for UK wide sales on behalf of Spotless. Commercial cleaning is a highly competitive market and the focus on staff engagement, quality and professionalism at Spotless is valued by our clients. The fact that Spotless is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year shows it is a business model that not only has staying power, but works, which is a powerful message to give to prospective clients.”
