Leading UK window, door and conservatory fabricator Conservatory Outlet is pleased to welcome Karen Clough to the team as Marketing Manager.
Karen’s role is one of around 15 new jobs created at the Wakefield-based firm during 2016 to support the company’s continued growth and expansion, taking the total number of staff to 135.
Karen’s broad experience in marketing strategy development, lead generation, conference and event management, and copywriting and communications is sure to equip her well for this varied role. No stranger to the industry, Karen has previously held marketing management roles at Saint-Gobain Building Glass and the Government-backed Manufacturing Advisory Service (MAS) which aimed to support manufacturing businesses in England to improve and grow.
The three-strong marketing department at Conservatory Outlet offers its retail partners across the nationwide network with exclusive support for their businesses. Karen’s role will help boost the existing provision on offer and develop new initiatives for members, including product and showroom launch support, enhanced lead generation and online and offline marketing materials.
Karen said “I am really excited to join the team at Conservatory Outlet, we have some very exciting plans for our network underway already which I can’t wait to be a part of. The success of the business is all about working with our close network of retail customers to ensure their continued success – if they grow, we grow - which is why my experience in business support at MAS I’m sure can add real value.
“Amongst our plans is the launch of a new post-sale App for our retail partners, an enhanced training and events programme and a pro-active campaign to support our dealers with opening new showrooms in untapped areas. There is definitely a lot to look forward to!”
