Evesham, United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 06, 2012 -- Anthony Langston has been at Plumbworld for several years now; first starting in the warehouse and then changing paths and becoming involved in the marketing department. Anthony in his current role oversees a lot of website administration tasks, the creating and refinement of new websites in the pipeline and employing many SEO strategies across all the sites on the Plumbworld network. His new role as 'Returns Manager' will provide him with a completely new challenge and put a different skill set of his into use.
Scott Morris, top dog of the Marketing department had a few words to contribute "Ant and I have worked alongside each other for a couple of years now and I couldn't have asked for a better person for the job. As we're a small team in marketing consisting of just 3 people, Ant leaving is quite a huge blow; if I had to compare it to anything, I'd liken it to Noah abandoning the Ark." Scott continues to say "I'm happy and sad at the same time for him; I know he'll do the other job to the best of his ability, but it's tough to see someone so adept for a specific role move on. I'm confident after a harsh winter and warm summer in warehouse conditions; he might be persuaded to come back to his home at marketing, where air conditioning is always available."
The Managing Director at Plumbworld, James Hickman was keen to get Anthony to spearhead this new job role. The dedication to his job over the years had seen Anthony work a lot of extra hours for no extra pay, but purely for the love of the job; this hadn't gone unnoticed, and part of the reason for being offered this new position was down to the motivation and drive he possessed. In this new arrangement, Anthony will be dealing with any customer/courier returns from over 50 online e-commerce sites; products will vary from power tools to electric showers to car jacks.
James Cook, Web Admin and a new addition to the marketing team spoke about Anthony; "I've only known him for a while, but he's one of the easiest guys to get along with and has really made me feel welcome since I've been here. He's been a great help in getting me to learn and be familiar with the in-house system and has helped me out on a great deal of other things. I've thoroughly enjoyed working with him for the past 2-3 months and I'll definitely be sad to see him leave, but, he needs more money to feed his Morrison's steak addiction, so I fully understand his decision."
The Plumbworld brand was started by James and Anita Hickman in 1999 and was sold to the Grafton Group PLC in December 2006, Plumbworld now employ more than 50 people in their purpose built warehouse and offices and boast an astonishing 50 websites selling everything from tools and bathroom vanity units to lawn mowers and wood burning stoves. The business has a turnover in excess of £18 million and is growing at more than 20% year on year.
