Welcome Gareth Kent Head of New Business
Gareth Kent joins Branded as our Head of New Business
We are delighted to welcome Gareth Kent to our rapidly expanding team! Gareth joined us at the beginning of February after leaving his ‘dream job’ in the Marine industry. Charlotte Fantelli, Owner of Branded Studios ‘tempted him away with the opportunity to be part of Branded’ because, he says; ‘I could see big things for the company and I wanted to be part of that.’
Furthermore, he adds; ‘Having worked with Charlotte before, I knew she would embrace my ideas and also help me grow creatively.’ Gareth takes on the important role of Head of Sales and New Business. He works closely with Charlotte Fantelli to grow our client base and consequently develop the business.
A Close Customer Contact Specialist
Gareth is a Close Customer Contact Specialist with a long history of working in sales and customer service. He has a wealth of knowledge spanning many industries and is a fantastic communicator at all levels.
Gareth and Charlotte met whilst working for Branded’s long-standing client Just Shutters. Charlotte says ‘I enjoyed working with Gareth from his days at Just Shutters. What struck me most about him – outside of his ability to create customer relationships and make sales; which is obviously the most important thing – was the fact he had such loyalty and focus. He was forever coming up with ideas that would approve efficiency and aid him in his role. I felt that kind of person was hard to find and knew I wanted him to be a part of our team.’
A warm welcome
Gareth has already been making waves in the two weeks he has been with us. From introducing the company to Sony Music, to bringing in video editing jobs. Gareth has also helped start the company tender application process with the public sector.
Charlotte adds; ‘Gareth is getting stuck in to what is a hugely challenging and vast role. His passion, enthusiasm and optimistic approach to his work makes these challenges seem smaller. His attitude makes Branded a wonderfully warm and creative place to be.’
Welcome on board Gareth!!
