Axis strengthens cleaning division

Axis Cleaning and Support Services has appointed two new sales managers to support the division’s new business drive.

Richard Barlow, who has 20 years of sales experience in the FM sector, is re-joining Axis after a brief sabbatical and will lead sales in the North, whilst the South region becomes the responsibility of Steven Willoughby, who joins with over 16 years of experience in the cleaning industry across organisations of all sizes.

Simon Giles, Axis Group finance director and Axis Cleaning and Support Services COO, says the business has been investing time and considerable effort into formulating its sales strategy for the coming years, of which a key part has been to build a strong sales team. He commented: “Both Richard and Steven have considerable experience with a number of cleaning and FM companies and I am very excited about working with both of them in the next stage of Axis’ development. They have already hit the ground running in terms of helping drive the business forward.”

Barlow and Willoughby will be supported by bid manager, David Downs.
