WP Group has announced today the appointment of Mary Ball as the newest member of the WP Fuel Sales Business Development Team.
Mary has extensive experience in the fuels distribution industry working for over 26 years at a number of the industry’s leading companies.
Going from strength to strength since her auspicious start in 1986 when she joined Shell as a Telesales Representative; Mary’s career highlights include a switch to Marketing in the late 1990’s with the achievement of her CIM credentials. Asking why Mary made the move to WP she commented “As an outsider, WP has the reputation of a professional company who can offer a reliable personal service. The company is unique as they value their customers at the centre of their business; this may come from the strong family influence which is felt in every aspect of the company. Sadly this important element is disappearing from larger fuel companies.”
Melanie Noel Fuel Sales Manager at WP Group said “Mary is a fantastic addition to our team at WP, and we are all excited to have her on board. Having the type of experience that Mary brings with her is rare and one that we are looking forward to harnessing.”
