Vanessa Stalley's Professional Experience

2012 - 2013

Omya - Team Leader and Sales Coordinator

I am responsible for 9 Sales Coordinators and 2 Credit Controllers who I work closely with to ensure the team delivers a premium standard of customer service. I organise, guide and motivate the team to ensure the Customer Service department runs smoothly. This involves arranging staffing, covering holidays and sickness , identifying training needs and organising training. I have introduced new procedures and team meetings which has improved communication and efficiency of the team
My own Coordinator role is demanding and high profile. I supply calcium carbonates from the UK, Spain,Turkey ,Holland and Germany to over 50 large companies in the plastics industry eg BPI, Polfylor, Speciality Coatings,Ineos. Communication and trust is key to my success and I have a fantastic rapport with my customers. My reputation for getting results has seen me implement new supply from Holland to a customer within 10 days. I achieved this by working closely with my Technical Sales Rep, purchasing manager, product manager and logistic team. Over 1 million pounds worth of new business was brought in. I set up my new orders using the SAP system, which I learnt how to use in a couple of weeks, enabling me to meet the short lead time and fulfill the needs of the customer. He has since placed future orders. I lead by example and work incredibly hard to fulfill both sides of my role. I also support my Head of Department by proposing new ideas and attending meetings in her absence.
