Farsight’s Chris Shields promoted to UK Sales Manager

Working together

We are excited to announce the promotion of Chris Shields to UK Sales Manager. This will strengthen our sales team and help us deal with ever-increasing numbers of customer enquiries.

In his new role, Chris will develop business plans and management strategies to win new contracts and expand our customer base nationally, lead and motivate the sales team, as well as oversee and maintain Farsight’s existing contracts.

Chris will be the national face of our company and provide a friendly point of contact for customers, using his extensive account management skills to satisfy their requirements.

Joining Farsight two years ago as Northern Business Development Manager, a position now vacant, Chris has gained much regional experience that will stand him in good stead as he transitions to a national sales position.

Prior to Farsight Chris spent over a decade working in sales for some of the UK’s biggest electronic security systems installers.

“Chris has worked extremely hard since joining us and fully deserves this promotion,” says Farsight Managing Director Rob Moore. “He is knowledgeable, highly competent and ambitious, so I have every confidence in his future success. Outstanding employees such as Chris are the lifeblood of Farsight and will help us drive the business forward in 2016.

Chris adds: “Taking on the role of UK Sales Manager is an enormous opportunity for me. I am sure there will be challenges but I have a wonderfully supportive team behind me, so I can’t wait to get stuck in. Farsight is a great company to work for and I am very happy here.”
