Continued growth at Hull-based caravan manufacturer leads to two new appointments

Hull caravan manufacturer, Atlas Leisure Homes, has bolstered its sales team with the creation of two new director roles. 

Janette McClean

Janette McClean has been promoted from her Regional Sales Manager role to Regional Sales Director – North. She has been with the company for over two years, in which time she has successfully led the northern team with both new customer wins and year-on-year growth with existing distributors.  

Joint Managing Director, Phil Spark, said: “Janette has supported the business through a time of rapid change and growth, taking responsibility for sales, customer service, and ensuring we continue to provide the very highest quality product that our dealers have come to expect from us. I was delighted to be able to promote from within for this new role. I know that she provides a safe pair of hands to support our customers.” 

Commenting on the new role, Ms McClean said “I’m really pleased to have been recognised in this way and am looking forward to delivering continued growth for Atlas and our customers – despite these strange and challenging times we’re working in.” 

Tim Parker

Joining the team in the second newly-created role, Regional Sales Director – South, is Tim Parker, who joins with a wealth of experience in the market. 

“It feels like the right time to bring someone in to the business who can help us drive further growth and so we can offer an even better service to our customers based in the south, and Tim is the ideal fit for this. He has a proven history of working successfully within the holiday home manufacturing industry,” commented Spark.  

Speaking about starting the new role, Parker said: “To start a new job in the current environment, having only met a few of my new colleagues, and not even having had a tour of the factory yet, is certainly different to what I’m used to, however I’m really looking forward to getting my teeth in to the new role. I’m based right in the heart of where many of our customers are, so as soon as lockdown ends, I’ll be able to get out and meet with them.”
