Warehouse Storage Solutions
Alexander James was tasked with seeking a number of sales professionals over a quarterly period for one of our clients WSSL. Given the company have a solution focus with the emphasis on large warehouse projects within the racking industry they required a specific type of sales professional from within the sector with a strong understanding of projects in addition to CAD qualifications and experience of using CAD in their roles. They also, naturally, needed to have a proven ability in a sales function having dealt with large projects and customer accounts successfully. Ultimately, what the company required was what we termed a 'Project Sales Manager.' In essence, an individual who had an overall understanding of warehouse solutions, not just racking and ideally a background in a Project/Contracts Manager's role having then moved into sales. One such individual that we had built a relationship with was Mike Wilshaw. Mike had a high level experience of working both in the racking industry and in material handling also with a strong background in both projects and sales. It was clear to see that that he was an ideal fit in respect of his expertise and capabilities and was seeking a fresh challenge having been with his ex employer for a number of years.
Mike was initially adverse to going back into the mainstream of the racking sector but after a number of discussions he began to see how the position with this particular company was a strong fit for him in comparison to other racking providers. We were delighted when we were able to place Mike on a package he deserved and he kindly wrote us the below testimonial:
"If you’re looking for a new role and you’re not sure of exactly what you want to do next then speak to Alex. Alex took the time to listen to why I wasn’t happy with my current role and to actually understand what I wanted out of my next career choice. He’s an extremely professional character and will work with you to achieve your goal whilst ensuring the highest level of discretion. I would highly recommend Alexander James to anyone looking to further their career."
At the time of writing Mike is still with the company and we wish him and WSSL continued success.
