A MORPETH woman has revved up her career with a newly-created role at a family garage equipment firm.

After seeing a 35 per cent increase in turnover last year, Gott Technical Services has recruited Vivienne Gibbs as its first client development executive.

She will extend and manage new repair service business opportunities and retain relationships with its existing service contract client base of more than 500 garages and multi-site motor retail groups.

“This is a brand new role for the company so there is a lot of room for me to push it into new territories, which I am very excited about,” she said.

“Gott is already seeing expansion in areas outside of the North East like Scotland and Cumbria and the advancements in low carbon vehicle equipment technology is another growth sector I’ll be accelerating.”

The mother of three, originally from Gateshead, previously worked as a sales account manager for hygiene company Cannon for nine years before joining the Coopies Lane-based business.

Gott Technical Services Director Ian Gott said: “We want to continue driving forward this year and as such we’re looking to build new relationships with new garages all of the time, which is where Vivienne comes in.

“We plan to extend the team by also recruiting equipment field sales representatives in different parts of the UK, while Vivienne focuses purely on the promotion of our service related products throughout the whole sales cycle, including after sales care.”
