Ben Pritchard, Marketing Manager – Central Services

Rsz _ben (2)

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  months.

 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.
