Physically Distant but Socially Connected
I’m Carwyn Gurmin, the Commercial Manager for atal UK. My role runs right across business daily. I deal with all the staff that we have in atal HQ, as well as externally dealing with anyone from architects and engineers, through to groundworkers. I’m here to ensure that we’re always operating as smoothly as we can. I’ve been with the company for 8 months so far and in that time, I’ve developed strategies and processes and be an enabler for growth for both the people and the business.
I’m passionate about man management and have continued to develop this by engaging with people throughout my career. Whatever training that’s been available, from recognised ILM qualifications sharpening my own capabilities to LEAN Six-Sigma along with sales strategy and training. Previously I spent 12 years with DS Smith Recycling, eventually moving from my position as Commercial Director to atal UK, seeing it as an exciting opportunity. I have overseen large projects that included supply chains worth over £65m and customer account management of over £20m.
As a team we are always looking to utilise best practice and look for ways to progress, developing individual growth plans well as job profiles to better understand where we fit in the atal system of enquiry. As we continue to develop, I’d encourage our clients to continue giving feedback to us at every opportunity, our main focus is ensuring that our clients have peace of mind throughout the process, consistent feedback enables us to adapt around the client’s needs.
