Carl F Groupco’s Regional Sales Team Leader Nathalie McKee and Purchasing Manager Lisa Davy have both celebrated ten years’ service for the hardware distributor. Nathalie and Lisa are the latest in a lengthy list of long servers for Carl F Groupco. During 2020, Credit Controller Edward Barnard also achieved the accolade and they join eighteen other Carl F Groupco employees who have passed the decade milestone.

In 2010, Nathalie joined the company as Sales Co-ordinator and was subsequently promoted to Regional Sales Team Leader. Nathalie enjoys her busy role managing the sales office team in the Peterborough head office, keeping customers updated regarding products and services; developing the internal sales team; preparing sales reports; taking responsibility for large customer accounts and liaising with customers. Nathalie says Carl F Groupco is a great company to work for: she emphasises the close teamwork, particularly during the pandemic where the organisation has pulled together to continue supplying essential hardware products.

Lisa Davy also joined the company a decade ago after previously working for the company in the sales department. As Purchasing Manager, she oversees ordering stock and ensuring product is available for On Time In Full delivery. Lisa also focuses on maintaining good relationships with suppliers. She is ably assisted by Bobbie-leigh Mckillop. Lisa observes that, over the last ten years, a major achievement for the company has been overcoming Brexit, twice - Lisa played a key role in ensuring stock levels were organised for the two major Brexit deadlines to safeguard supply of hardware throughout.

The celebrations were marked by colleagues who extended their thanks and congratulations to Natalie and Lisa who were working from home at the time due to coronavirus restrictions.
