North Scotland has welcomed Craig Mitchell to the role of Sales Director Designate working with the team at its Perth office.

Making the move from his previous region of West Scotland, Craig takes on his new position after being promoted from Field Sales Manager.  He has been with Persimmon Homes for nine years having started out as a Trainee Sales Advisor in 2012.

Commenting on his appointment, Craig said: “I’ve experienced a high level of sales success working in a field sales capacity for our West Scotland region and I am looking forward to bringing my experience to this expanded role and to replicating this success.

“Persimmon Homes is currently enjoying a buoyant period of sales and my key focus is to further grow our business in North Scotland.  We will achieve this through sales of quality homes, while ensuring a high level of service and customer satisfaction is at the forefront of everything we do.”

Craig’s overall remit is to oversee the sales function of the business in North Scotland region that currently has 13 developments across North Lanarkshire, Perthshire, Fife, Tayside and Grampian and is managed by a team of 13 made up of three Field Sales Managers, Sales Advisors and Sales Administrators.

James MacKay, Managing Director at North Scotland, said: “Craig is well known in the property sales sector in Scotland having developed his career with Persimmon Homes over the last nine years, leading to him now picking up the reins for the North Scotland region.

“His progression through the company demonstrates the excellent opportunities available to build an exciting and worthwhile career within Persimmon Homes.  Achieving Sales Director Designate after joining us as a Trainee Sales Advisor in just nine years is no mean feat and hopefully this will inspire other young people to look at what we have to offer.

“I am delighted all Craig’s hard work has paid off and that he has been promoted into this role. I know that he will make a significant contribution to our sales effort in this region.”
