Simon Lewis appointed to the Board in his new role as Sales Director

We are delighted to announce an addition to our leadership team, appointing Simon Lewis as Sales Director.

Simon joined Roberts Mart in 2012 as Business Development Manager and was promoted to Head of Sales in 2021, as the company stepped up its growth plans.

In his role as Head of Sales, Simon has worked closely with the sales team to bring on new business, over ten new customers in the past 12 months alone, including frozen food, pet food, chilled foods and snacks markets, bringing work across a broader range of product sectors.

“I am absolutely thrilled to be promoted to Sales Director.  The future for Roberts Mart is very exciting and I am pleased to have the opportunity to play an important role in this new phase of development,” commented Simon.

We are projecting continued growth through new customer accounts, with a target to increase turnover to over £50 million, by the end of the year.

William Roberts, Managing Director at Roberts Mart, commented: “Simon has played a significant role in the growth of our business over the past decade, as we continue to consolidate our position in expanding markets whilst increasing support in our core business sectors.  Simon is a great asset to our company, and we are delighted to welcome him onto the Board.”

We have also made additional significant managerial appointments to strengthen our production and warehouse teams.  James Campbell has been promoted to Production Manager and Gosia Mierzwa-Paszkowska to Operations Manager, responsible for warehouse, logistics and quality departments.  Sam Hocker takes on the role of Quality & Technical Co-ordinator and Paul Walshaw is the new Engineering & Facilities Manager.

The firm also welcomes to the business Dominic Kissack as Business Development Manager, bringing the team up to six and Jo Fletcher joins as Health, Safety & Environmental Manager.

Recent investment of over £11 million in new machinery and an extensive facility expansion mean Roberts Mart can easily manage an increase in contracts. Investing in the future of the business will allow the firm to operate even more efficiently, future-proof their business and better support a growing customer base.
