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.
