Cheers to 10 years with Johnsons Workwear to Shaun Somers
Shaun began his career with Johnsons as a Regional Sales Executive, working out of the Hull and Leeds plants and rising to the challenge of covering a large geographical area from Wakefield to Skegness, Boston to Derbyshire, and Nottinghamshire, successfully hitting target every year.
After five years, Shaun was appointed as National Motor Division Manager.
His role involves “setting up supply chains, seeking new business and maintaining the current client base, supporting product development, distribution and marketing, and keeping up with the challenges of a very fast moving automotive sector.”
Shaun’s has successfully qualified for six company Club Trips. He says: “these have included some things I never thought I’d have the opportunity to do. I’ve been to Niagara Falls, the top of the CN Tower, and ridden a segway around Berlin!” However, there was one very important Club Trip he missed to Marrakech! And that was because he was getting married instead!
Shaun is particularly proud of having brought some big client names to Johnsons for their workwear, such as BMW, and of a strong year on year growth in sales.
During Covid-19, Shaun has been authorised as an NHS volunteer to help with transportation and community response, and he has already been out spreading a little cheer in his local area delivering sweet treats to his local hospital and ambulance station and delivering Easter eggs to a local nursing home.
Shaun’s manager Stephanie Jordan, head of major accounts for Johnsons Workwear, comments: “Since coming into the department Shaun has made a big contribution and our division has gone from strength to strength, enabling us to bring an industry leading offering to the UK’s dealers and garages. More importantly, Shaun really brings a sense of fun to the team.”
