As part of an on-going programme to strengthen their sales and customer support service, The Grass Group have made a number of promotions and appointments. Following the tradition of promoting staff internally where possible, Robin Sugg has been promoted to the role of Service Manager and Vinny Tarbox to Sales and Marketing Manager.
Robin is highly experienced within service and customer facing roles and is well accustomed to the full range of Grass Group brands, previously working as a service engineer and assistant service manager.
Having worked in the marketing department for just over a year, Vinny is looking forward to the challenge of the new combined role encompassing sales alongside customer demonstrations. “The dual sales and marketing role is something I have undertaken previously so feel I have a good understanding of what is required as well as experience of working within the sales environment,” Vinny commented.
In the vein of promoting from within is the recent addition of Emily Merrell, daughter of MD Tim. Emily will be working alongside Vinny supporting him as Sales and Marketing Executive. She has recently graduated from the University of Southampton with a BA in French, including practical experience of a year’s work experience on mainland France. Emily will play a key role in UK and European dealer support; organising and attending trade shows; booking and attending product demonstrations and working on the company’s advertising and social media. “I’m looking forward to bringing new ideas to the day to day sales and marketing activities of The Grass Group,” she said.
