28 April 2016
An experienced property professional from Leicestershire has landed a top sales job at Persimmon East Midlands.
Sharon Gilder, of Stathern, has joined Persimmon’s East Midlands region as field sales manager. She has plenty of experience within the industry having worked for other housebuilders as well as Persimmon North Midlands– and now she’s looking forward to becoming a mentor to others at the company.
“I’m delighted to be back with Persimmon Homes,” said Sharon. “And really looking forward to getting stuck in and helping my team drive towards even greater success. This is an exciting new role for me and I have a lot to learn obviously, but I know that I can achieve that by working closely with the team. Steven, my sales director, has been very supportive and has an open door policy. I genuinely believe I can thrive here and make an important contribution.”
Sharon, whose husband Mark is furniture maker, will oversee Persimmon East Midlands’ most northerly sites. They include Burfield Walk in Witham St Hughs, Fairways Park in Retford and Holdingham in Sleaford.
Sharon, who has two chocolate Labradors and a German Shepherd-cross, said she has received a very warm welcome from the team in her first three weeks in the job. “It feels like I’ve been here a lot longer already,” she said. “Everyone I’ve come across has been great and I’m looking forward to meeting the rest of the team.”
Sales director, Steven Allenby said: “I’m delighted to welcome Sharon to the team. She brings with her a vast amount of knowledge and experience, which I’m sure will be very valuable to us. We’re extremely busy at the moment with new sites to be launched throughout the year, so I’m pleased to have Sharon as part of our team.”
Persimmon Homes East Midlands, which employs about 100 people and has its headquarters at Peterborough Business Park, is looking for experienced sales people to join the team. Information on the jobs currently available can be found at www.persimmonjobs.com
