As WJ Group settles into 2017, we introduce our new Commercial Manager to you. Neil Allison joined us at the beginning of the year and will lead the commercial arm of the business.
Working closely with our customers, Neil will support business development and help to strengthen the proactive partnerships that we have developed with many businesses, near and far. He is certainly set to become a familiar face and voice to many!
Neil has just returned from six years in Perth, Australia with his family. There, he worked for Deb Australia (a division of SC Johnson) as Regional Business Development Manager; he managed a territory that was half the size of Europe! Travelling is therefore of no concern to Neil at all and he will traverse the UK with ease, when the traffic allows. Prior to his time in Australia, Neil worked as Area Sales Manager for Deb in Yorkshire.
Of his new appointment to WJ Group, Neil comments: “I’m excited to be joining a fast-growing company back in my home town of Hull. There are business development opportunities in all areas that we operate, including timber treatment, anti-slip decking and batch components. My experience gained both in the UK and Australia, of building strong relationships with customers and working closely with them to supply their specific needs should fit well with the timber industry and I’m looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead.”
A keen golfer when he finds a moment, Neil spends much of his spare time supporting his two young daughters with their various sporting activities as the family settles back into life in Hull.
