Employee Perspective -Phil

In this month’s Employee Perspective we are going to hear from Phil, a member of our team, about his experience with the company.

About Phil:

I’m Phil, our Distribution Manager, employed to meet and exceed the growing demands of the business. I have been at UK Acoustic Systems for 4 months, after joining in February 2016 as part of our team growth. Having worked in other sales and business development roles within the past, I felt that this role was perfect for me and something I could utilise my experience in. I love growing my personal skills and facing new challenges and I feel like working at UKAS is the best way to achieve that.

Role:

As the Distribution Manager my role is primarily to ensure leads and stock orders are run smoothly through our main distributor. This includes site visits to key contacts around the UK which allows me to utilise skills gained from previous experience. My day-to-day activities include gathering sales leads from various channels and extrapolating relevant information so we can quote clients, following up existing quotes to main contractors, arranging supply only leads via our distributor and creating purchase orders and sending them through to our manufacturer in eastern Europe ensuring stock levels are balanced.

My role means that I am part of the Sales Team, working closely with my other team members. As quite a new member of this team, I try to learn as much as I can from the sales team. I also work closely with Chris, our Business Development Manager on certain projects to enhance my knowledge of the industry and our processes.

Why I love working for UK Acoustic Systems:

It’s an exciting time for this company! My role gives me a huge opportunity for unprecedented success in terms of dealing with the distributors as I joined the company just before the new business ventures started. I’ve always found that it’s important to work with good people too, which is another tick in the UKAS box, as I get to work closely with a fantastic team of people. I love working for UKAS and as long as I can continue to improve there’s no reason why I can’t see myself still here in 10 years enjoying the shared success with my colleagues. I would definitely recommend both working at UKAS, and hiring our team of experts for any project.

Outside of Work:

Outside of work I try to exercise just enough to keep fit, travel (I just recently got back from celebrating my honeymoon in Indonesia) when I can and spend time with my wife and our friends. I also enjoy reading often, cooking and trying new recipes and playing a bit of guitar.
