Meet our New National Sales Manager
We are delighted to announce the appointment of our brand-new National Sales Manager.
As part of or continued expansion plans, Steve Price has joined the Robust team in the newly created role.
He’ll lead the internal and external sales function here at Robust as we head towards the move to our multi million pounds world-class manufacturing base in Newcastle-under-Lyme later this year. Steve will also oversee developing new product ranges.
He has nearly twenty years of sales experience (including field based) across a range of sectors including DIY, doors, joinery, and kitchen suppliers as well as his last role in manufacturing, and started with us earlier this month.
Steve says he can’t wait to get stuck into the role:
“I am absolutely delighted to have joined Robust at what is such an exciting time for the company. It feels like the perfect fit and I’m really looking forward to using my skills and experience to help the brand grow even further.”
Steve, who lives with his partner as well as his pet labradoodle in Cheshire, added:
“The company is in a really strong position and is consistently growing, thanks to a very active, clearly hard-working sales team. As we plan for our big move this November and we continue to recruit more staff there is real opportunity to increase our brand awareness and grow even further. The long-term plan is to increase turnover to £30 million by 2030 and with the steps that I’ve already seen in place we are very much on target. I am really looking forward to working with the team here to help Robust become even more successful in the future.”
So, when Steve’s not working, what does he do in his spare time?
He tells us he’s a big music fan and has seen his favourite band Feeder many times including in travelling to Europe multiple times to see them! It’s after his brother introduced them to him when he was just 17-years-old. He also enjoys the simple pleasures in life like long walks with the dog at the weekend enjoying the scenery of the local area.
Although Steve lives in Cheshire now, he grew up in Kingsley in the Staffordshire Moorlands. One thing he says not many people know about him is that he learnt to play the Euphonium at school but he says he won’t be bringing one into the office anytime soon.
