With an increasing number of new trade partners joining the outdoor living specialists, G18 finalists the Milwood Group have responded by strengthening their team with a new appointment.
Tahlia Ibrahim joins the firm as their new Assistant Sales and Marketing Administrator. Her remit is to support Milwood’s nationwide network of trade partners whether that’s through distributing sales leads, providing technical support or delivering updated price lists and new product information.
Her main focus, however, is to ensure trade partners are set up and taking advantage of Milwood’s renowned Trade Partner Area, their online hub which offers high-impact marketing and sales material, technical documents, installation manuals and online resources for their own websites.
“I’m really happy to join the team at the Milwood Group,” comments Tahlia. “My role covers a lot of different areas whether it’s supporting our trade partners, managing Milwood’s social accounts or even answering the live chat feature on our website. I’m learning something new every day and really enjoying working closely with customers to deliver all the tools and support they need.”
Mark Wood, Managing Director of the Milwood Group adds: “We are really pleased to welcome Tahlia to the Milwood Group team. Tahlia has really hit the ground running and is proving to be a great addition to our sales and marketing department. She plays a vital role as our trade partner champion, helping our network of over 150 businesses nationwide thrive in the outdoor living market, selling and installing our kit-based aluminium verandas, canopies and carports with complete confidence.”
Strengthening the team comes after a busy and successful 12 months for the Milwood Group with not only the arrival of new trade partners but the launch of new product lines including bioclimatic pergolas and Simplicity 6, the firm’s new multi-purpose veranda. Just a few months ago, Milwood even launched their own Training Academy to help new trade partners successfully break into the market.
Based at their centrally-located distribution and fulfilment centre in Leicestershire, the Training Academy was recently announced as a finalist for ‘Training & Development Initiative of the Year’ at the G18 Awards, after the facility surpassed 50 graduates just three months after opening.
