Ben Pritchard, Marketing Manager – Central Services
I started with Saint-Gobain back in June 2010 on the Management
Trainee Scheme. Having been selected from a pool of over 5,000
applicants I immediately understood the opportunity before me. I
was placed in our Leamington branch where I was taught everything I
needed to know and more about the building industry. I was asked to
present to a board of individuals which included a Regional
Director and the Regional HR manager, who realised I had a flare
for marketing. I subsequently moved to Central Services in Binley
to help with the 175 celebration marketing campaign for six
I've been in Marketing ever since. I started as an Online
Marketing Executive, and then progressed to General Marketing
Executive. After a year in this role I was promoted to the role of
Marketing Manager, which I'm extremely proud of. I've received a
huge amount of support from my managers and peers who have
encouraged me to expand my horizons and learn new skills.
I successfully completed a CIM Marketing course with the full
backing of Jewson in August 2012.
In 2014 I started a new role within the Marketing Team looking
after the Customer Experience. Within this role I am responsible
for managing the customer feedback loop.
Without all of the support I've received in my roles, I don't
believe I'd be where I am today.
