Internal Account Manager

I have worked for Horizon Platforms since August 2010, previously working for an International Drainage company.  I was ready for a new challenge and after attending my first interview at Horizon, I knew that this was the type of company that I was looking for.

My first impressions of a customer focussed, fast paced business, proved to be right.  Even though I have only worked here for 10 months, I have seen a huge amount of growth within both the Rental and the Training side of the business.  The fleet has now grown from 180 machines to over 300! It is no wonder some people say that Horizon Platforms is the most successful and fastest growing Powered Access Company in the North.

Having started work in the Hire office, with no prior knowledge of the Access Industry. It really was sink or swim!  However, working with two of the best Hire Controllers in the business, I felt that I was able to grasp the volume of work and learn the different types of machines quickly. Their customer service skills, product knowledge and experience were just what I needed to help support me and help me grow into the role.

At the start of April 2011 I moved into a new role within the business as Internal Account Manager.   This role is a very pro-active consisting of attracting new customers, re-activating old ones and also developing current customers, which is proving to be very successful. The main selling point when introducing Horizon Platforms to prospective customers is that ‘Customer service’ is at the heart of everything that we do and that the whole Horizon team truly do strive to be the very best.

The team spirit permeates right the way through the business in every department.  This Team Spirit and our desire to satisfy all of our customers is what helps make my job so rewarding.

 I am proud to say that I work for Horizon Platform and look forward to watching the business grow over the coming years.
