As part of our strategic growth plan, and following the success of our Welsh region, we are pleased to announce the arrival of Mark West as our Regional Director for Wales and the South West. The appointment of Mark comes as part of Smart’s investment into our specialist divisions, and allows our operations in Wales and the South West to continue the significant growth that they’ve been experiencing for the last 18 months.
Mark has spent the last 12 years in Senior Management Roles within the Recruitment Industry, where he drove the strategic direction and business objectives of the relevant companies. He brings a hands on approach to developing internal teams, so that they are able to offer `Excellence in Service’ to the client base. This, along with his experience of working with clients on a local and national scale, enables him to offer an innovative ‘solutions’ based service across a multitude of sectors.
Mark’s experience and values are a great fit for the ambitions, culture and work ethic of our senior management team. He also embodies the attributes that fit Smart’s value proposition of delivering an innovative service model, long lasting partnerships with both clients and suppliers, and exceptional recruitment knowledge.
On his decision to join Smart Solutions, Mark said, “I decided to join Smart, as they are a truly dynamic company with a clear vision and strategy. Smart not only offer unique business solutions, but they also work to create business partnerships in order to maximise the output for their clients. The other key aspect of Smart Solutions is their clear career path and development for their internal teams, which are vitally important for a company to achieve their aspirations.”
Mark’s appointment will be instrumental in driving growth of our pre-existing operations in Wales, as well as targeted growth in new geographical locations. The first of which is soon to be realised with the opening of our latest recruitment Hub in the Bristol region. Speaking of Mark’s arrival to Smart Solutions, Rob Calcraft, Operations Director of our Branch Network and Onsite division had the following to say. “Being able to bring someone as experienced, and well respected as Mark into the business is an indication of our achievements in the industry. Mark brings a wealth of experience to the business, and shared ambitions of growth and development, which will bring huge successes to our operations in Wales and the South West. I am very excited to be working with Mark, and very confident of a successful year ahead.”
