“Geoff joined S.A.C. Construction at the beginning of 2015 on a part-time freelance basis. Geoff’s wealth of construction contacts together with his industry knowledge and experience have contributed greatly to the continued increase in our workload over the last four years. Additionally, through his approach Geoff quickly became an integral part of the S.A.C. team and I highly recommend his services”.
“I worked with Geoff when he was a Business Development Manager for a main contractor and I recently invited him to spend time at our office to see how he could assist us. We have subsequently implemented a number of ideas that Geoff has suggested and I am delighted to say that these are producing results”.
“Geoff worked with me during GMS’s time with Protech. Geoff immediately became part of our time and used his experience and contacts to successfully increase our turnover from our existing client list as well as introducing many new clients to us. Additionally, we were successful on a number of on-line Framework and tender submissions Geoff put together for us”.
We brought the services of GMS on board part-time at the end of 2013 after agreeing a financial arrangement that worked for us both. After picking up the baton for the B&W Group Geoff quickly familiarised himself with the activities of our various subsidiaries and each one has saw an increase in enquiries. I am delighted that we have subsequently carried out numerous profitable projects as a result of these enquiries.
“Since we have been utilising the services of GMS we have seen a significant increase in the numbers of enquiries we have received overall including a 100% increase in enquires received from some of our existing clients. Even more importantly, we have carried out profitable work for a number of new clients that GMS have introduced us to”.
“GMS has recently helped W.S.Howe & Co to acquire a number of new major clients for whom we are carrying out profitable business. Additionally, the financial arrangement we agreed with GMS proved to be good value for money”.
“I worked with Geoff for close on ten years whilst he was Business Development Manager at SDC Housing. Geoff’s Sales and Marketing work, Networking and PQQ documents were instrumental in building relationships and Frameworks with Housing Associates that enabled us to deliver turnover and margin to meet our business plans. Geoff is hardworking, intelligent and personable and I have no hesitation in recommending him in this his area of expertise.”
“I dealt with Geoff for several years in his Business Development role for a housing contractor. He carried out this role professionally keeping in touch with clients and trying to match opportunities to identified needs. A significant part of the role of Business Development is successfully establishing and developing contacts and Geoff was able to do this is a personable way ensuring regular and on-going contact”.
“I have worked with Geoff for several years and found him to be proactive and enthusiastic in bringing forward business development opportunities. Geoff played a key role in resuming SDC and bpha’s business relationship, resulting in several successful projects”.
“Geoff is one of the best contractor/developer business development managers I have worked with.”
“I worked with Geoff at Henry Boot Construction. He negotiated an extension to a School and it was my first job to deliver – a quality small project with a great design team and client. Geoff stayed in touch with the design team and oversaw my work – the project was a great success and under Geoff’s tutorage I was able to develop my career at a pace. Geoff moved towards business development and used his natural flair and warm personality to great effect. His move to the Southern Region was to the detriment of the Midlands team”.
“Geoff was a valuable member of staff with SDC for 12½ years. His role as Business Development Manager was at the forefront of the business in a sales and marketing role seeking to secure opportunities for the company.
His primary responsibilities related to the Housing Division, operating within the affordable housing sector delivering schemes for residential social landlords (RSL’s) with whom Geoff built up excellent relationships and a clear understanding of the RSL requirements, the latter being a pre-requisite of working within this field.
Geoff will be an asset to any organisation within these sectors of activity.”
“I am lucky you are a patient, along with a loyal member of our team. Belatedly, I would like to thank you for your energy and humour during your first 10 years and congratulate you on your successes during that time. We are fortunate to have so many housing enquiries during this recession and you should take great satisfaction from your part of that achievement”.
