AIS Training has appointed a new business development manager to support key clients across the region and raise awareness of its services in the Humber, Midlands and South of England.
Geoff Croft, from Scotter, near Scunthorpe, will be based at the company’s facilities at Catch in Stallingborough, and will be responsible for promoting the extensive portfolio of wind, oil and gas and industrial courses to regional businesses and those further afield to help them develop a highly skilled, safe and competent workforce.
Originally from Liverpool, the 43-year-old is married with two children, and has a solid background in sales having worked in senior business development roles for the past 10 years with organisations such as Grimsby Institute, security specialist Orbis and Ingeus.
Geoff said: “Joining AIS Training really excites me. The company has a unique and highly innovative approach to business, which explains why it has grown so phenomenally since its inception ten years ago. AIS Training works very closely with its clients to truly understand their needs and provides everything from online training management to free finance, accommodation and tailored training solutions to help improve safety and productivity. I’m really looking forward to talking to regional businesses to find out how we can help them now and in the future. My aim is for AIS Training at Catch to become the place to go for GWO wind training in the region.”
Prior to sales, he had a career in the forces and worked abroad in places like Marbella and Egypt.
His first priority will be to get to grips with AIS Training’s extensive product range, which includes more than 400 training and competency courses approved by the world’s leading accreditation and standard setting bodies.
These courses are delivered at AIS’s state-of-the-art training centres based at strategic locations around the UK including Newcastle, Aberdeen and Stallingborough, where AIS is located at Catch. It provides world-class training and competency courses for the energy, engineering and renewables industries.
Gavin Taylor, commercial director at AIS, said: “We are delighted to welcome Geoff to our expanding business development team. He has a fantastic track record of building strong client relationships and we’re confident he’ll become a great asset for the business community across Lincolnshire.”
