Today is Civil Aviation Day and we thought we would take the opportunity to introduce you to our Sales Director Mr Colin Green who has been faithfully serving our Aviation customers for many years.
Colin started working with MPI back in 1987, so this year he celebrated 35 years, more than half of the years we have been in business! He moved to us from a hands on engineering background and started as a recruitment consultant. It quickly became apparent that he had both a passion for sales and new business and combining that with his friendly, dedicated and efficient approach he quickly got promoted to manager and asked to start a brand new office in Telford.
Colin then handpicked an amazing team and our recruitment director Ellen was one of his first hires. She is grateful to him for a wonderful opportunity and the two still work tremendously together on new and existing business. Over the next few years Telford was built into an incredible business with contracts with British Aerospace and British Rail Engineering to name but two. When asked about a career highlight for Colin from his time at Telford he stated "Winning the British Rail Engineering Limited account."
Colin then moved back to our head office in 2000 when he was promoted to director and continued to work to establish lasting relationships with clients in rolling stock, airlines and aircraft maintenance repair organisations. The most important thing to Colin and the reason for his success stems from a desire to provide the best possible service for each and every client he works with. His career highlight when asked..."The continued successful long term retention of several valued clients" and when I asked him about his meticulous attention to detail for every client he had this to say "I like to get things right even if it takes longer, clients can see I’m careful in the detail and trust grows from there. Supplying our clients is a pleasure , we only exist to make them stronger." This amongst many other reasons is why MPI is lucky to have a sales director like Colin. When managing director Simon Henser was asked about working with Colin he said "At the last tender presentation for TUI, Colin was extremely composed he showed great understanding of what TUI required and his passion for MPI providing TUI with an excellent level of service was infectious. He built a real team spirit within the MPI tender team and this ultimately led to MPI retaining the TUI contract."
So what about the person beyond the office. What else other than great customer service makes Colin tick? Number One- Travel. Colin loves to travel and see the world. His favourite city? Rome. Favourite landscapes? American National Parks with their depth and variety of terrain and natural resources. Number 2- Old American Cars. In fact Colin is quite the automotive enthusiast, indeed Simon Henser said this about Colin "If Colin hadn’t been a successful Engineering Director, I always felt he would have been a great driving instructor he gave me a few lessons many years ago and it really helped me passing my driving test !" What a tremendous accolade with all the driving both of these gentleman have to do for their work! And number 3- Japanese Motorcycles!!
So if you want to work with a sales director who stands for everything above and more then don't hesitate to get in touch with Colin on the contact information above or through this link : Linked In. I think our clients and team would confirm it is a call you won' t regret!!
