A Day in the Life of Garador’s Aaron Clarke

In this feature article we will get to know Garador’s Area Sales Manager for the South West of England, Aaron Clarke, who works as part of Garador’s nationwide sales team to generate business for the company.

How long have you worked with Garador?
  • I started at Garador in September 2016, 24 years young! 

What is your job at Garador?

  • I am the Area Sales Manager for the South West, looking after the National & Independent Builders Merchants, Specialists, Housing Developers and Housing Associations, basically anyone that has a Garage Door requirement! 

What experience or training was required?

  • I have 10 years sales experience including 3 years field sales experience prior to starting at Garador, this included working in Media Marketing & External Sales for a National Builders Merchant. 

What does a normal day look like?

  • A normal day tends to start with a wake up call from my two children! In reality every day is different, however I’m normally on the road by 7.15 on route to see my first customer of the day! My day to day duties largely involve visiting customers at their premises and offering support on products and pricing, ensuring showrooms have all our up to date products, working on new business together such as housing developers. 

What are the best and hardest parts of the job?

  • Best – I have a excellent customer base in the South West and have built up some great relationships over the past 3 or so years.

    Hardest – Being away from my young family. 

Have you worked on any interesting projects?

  • I have worked on lots of interesting projects! Because we have quite a diverse product range, I get to work on lots of different projects across the region which requires different specifications. 

What has been your proudest moment at Garador?

  • I was awarded the Managing Directors award fairly early on in my career with Garador, for going above and beyond the call of duty with a customer and really going out of my way to help the company. This gave me great confidence that what I was doing was being noticed and appreciated.
