After joining Stax Trade Centres just two years ago, Marie Rossi has been promoted from Seasonal Section Manager to the field based role of Sales Representative, looking after key garden centre clients across Scotland.
Since joining Stax, Marie has consistently impressed with her ability to ensure sales targets are exceeded, delighting customers with her proactive approach. It was her excellent customer relations skills and extensive product knowledge that made her the ideal candidate to fill the role, which will see her responsible for the Fife, Tayside, Angus, the Lothians, Central Scotland and Glasgow territories.
Previously Marie spent 12 years working at Makro where she rose to several key managerial positions. With a CV which clearly demonstrates her ability to surpass expectations, a desire to progress and a hunger to take on more responsibility, Marie’s knowledge of the wholesale sector has been pivotal in the ongoing success of Stax’s flagship Scottish Glasgow branch.
The promotion further enhances Stax’s ethos of nurturing their own talent and promoting from within for key roles. The UK’s leading DIY and garden wholesaler believes passionately that the key to a strong team is to develop people and help them to achieve their own goals in order to be as effective as possible. It’s these values that have seen several staff promoted and moved into roles better suited to their skills over the last few years.
Stax Operations Director, Nigel Wright commented: “It’s no wonder that Marie continues to rise through the ranks. Her tenacity and ambition is infectious and we’re delighted that she’s agreed to take on this demanding sales role. We always seek to promote from within the company wherever possible and in Marie we had the perfect candidate. She’s excelled throughout her short career with Stax so far and I have no doubt Marie will continue to help Stax achieve its ambitious growth targets.”
