Smith Sign and Display, part of William Smith Group 1832, is pleased to announce the appointment of Ian Spence as Business Development Manager.
Having worked for the Company for over 15 years, Ian will now be responsible for all business development activities related to trade manufactured signage.
Previously working on the material distribution side of the business, Ian is a familiar face within the sign and graphics industry, having worked as an External Account Manager in the North of England and attended many company and industry events.
Smith Sign & Display has seen significant growth in recent years and the decision to appoint a dedicated Business Development Manager indicates a positive step forward in what are challenging times for businesses throughout the UK.
Promoting from within and appointing Ian for the role was a logical step for the division due to his wealth of knowledge and experience in sign-making. Having worked in many different positions throughout his time with the company, Ian originally joined the business as a sign maker, manufacturing both CE Marked Traffic Signage and commercial signage.
Speaking on the appointment of his new role Ian commented:
“It’s a new year, a new role, although I feel like I am going back to my roots. I started in manufactured signage and now I am back in manufactured signage. What makes this more exciting is that it’s a new role but with the same company and dealing with the same customer base.
The signage division has been growing over the last few years and now I have the opportunity to help it grow even further.”
