Omar Group Promotes a Select Group of Ladies

With Omar Group’s continued success and expansion, and in recognition of the dedication and commitment shown by a select group of individuals, the company is delighted to announce a number of promotions within their sales and marketing functions: Ashley Alkac as Commercial Manager, Caroline Kuijper as Sales Office Manager, Claire Tallon as Retail Sales & Showground Manager and Clara Baillie-Lane as Group Head of Marketing.

Having worked for the company for over eight years initially as a Sales Administrator and for the past seven years as Sales Office & Showground Manager, Ashley has been promoted to the position of Commercial Manager. Ashley has recently led the implementation of a new CRM system for the company (due to go live in June), and has shown great commercial skills alongside a sound understanding of the business and its processes. In this all-new role, Ashley will have key management input on the commercial aspects of customer relationships; analyse commercial activities; review processes and carry out business improvement projects around sales and product development.

After seven years of exemplary service to the company and with a solid understanding of the sales office and sales processes, Caroline Kuijper has been promoted to the position of Sales Office Manager.  This new position is well deserved having demonstrated strong management skills as Assistant Sales Office Manager and running the sales office whilst Ashley concentrated on the implementation of the CRM project. Caroline will maintain the smooth running of the sales office, supporting the area sales managers.

Claire Tallon, who joined Omar Group in December 2017 as Retail Sales Manager, has been given the increased responsibility of managing the Brandon showground and is now Omar's Retail Sales & Showground Manager. Claire has already demonstrated considerable skills in dealing with 400 plus retail leads a month, making introductions between retail customers and parks, helping customers to specify their new park homes and lodges, and ensuring an outstanding customer experience. Claire’s new role will encompass responsibility for the showground, ensuring it’s maintained to the highest of standards.

Following four years of outstanding contribution to the company, transforming their marketing collateral and effectively leading their marketing function, Clara Baillie-Lane has also received some well-deserved recognition and has been promoted to Group Head of Marketing. Clara will continue to be responsible for all aspects of promotion and marketing across the five group brands, developing and delivering the group marketing strategies.

Peter Berwick, Omar Group Sales & Design Director commented: “We’re exceptionally proud of what we’ve achieved as a team here at Omar Group; the contributions of this select group of ladies has certainly contributed to the success the company has seen in recent years. Congratulations to Ashley, Caroline, Claire and Clara on their new positions!”
