Audiologic, provider of professional audio solutions, has announced two new staff roles as part of ongoing expansion in what has been a challenging year: sales support supervisor Vicky Clayden and internal business manager Jessica Raraty (pictured).
Raraty’s role is predominantly an office-based sales role with a hybrid approach to internal and external sales. The role has a strong focus on relationship building with Audiologic’s widening direct customer base, which is key to its 2022 success.
The sales support supervisor role sees Clayden overseeing the structuring of the internal sales team. The position supports the strategy to have an internal support member dedicated to each external business manager, as a team.
The company’s headcount grew by 15% in the last year to meet the demands of the business, and included the hire of sales manager, Stuart Leader from POLAR Audio, in September 2021. Stuart was hired with the plan to bring a holistic approach to the sales function. The strategic alignment of the internal and external sales teams brings the opportunity for Stuart to grow and develop the team’s roles.
“As a business and an industry, we have all had challenges to face and to overcome in the past year,” said Stuart Leader, senior sales manager. “Since joining Audiologic, we have been working hard on a strategy to help drive the company forward. I am proud that as we enter 2022, we have developed new roles and a sales structure that will allow us to focus on our business and more importantly, forecast where it is coming from. We are excited for the new year ahead and look forward to entering the next chapter of growth for Audiologic.”
The growth of Audiologic and its customers also sees a continued focus on procurement and processes. Anne Broadley, senior operations manager, continues to make sure the business has the support structure, processes, and best practises in place to ensure the best delivery of customer service, on which the company prides itself.
To support this, Nicola Boyle takes on the role of procurement administrator, a role which will refine existing processes with the aim of providing accurate data such as lead times, delivery dates, pricing and order fulfilment information in the most efficient manner possible.
Anne Broadley, Senior Operations Manager, concludes: “Audiologic is a rapidly growing business with a family ethos which remains. We listen, we understand, we inform, we design, we supply. We empower our employees to drive the business and stay dedicated to delivering on our core values. The new roles for the company allow us to make sure we continue to deliver on that promise. We congratulate and welcome Jessica, Nicola and Vicky into their new roles.”
