Chesterfield manufacturer Peak Pipe Systems has recently announced several internal promotions after staff at the company showed ‘outstanding commitment’ during the covid-19 pandemic.
As part of the company’s values and strategy, it looks to invest in employees and empower staff. Despite describing the last year as tough, Peak Pipe Systems has continued to develop and has made changes in order to enable the team to work more effectively.
Mark Bottoms has extensive experience working on Extrusion since 2014 when he joined Peak and has recently been promoted to Senior Operations Coordinator.
Meanwhile Marcin Ablomiejko, who joined Peak in 2017 working on Extrusion has been promoted to Team Leader following years of continued personal development.
Within the sales team, Beccy Thompson joined Peak in 2014 and has shown her dedication and support to the team in varied roles, such as Team Leader. Beccy has recently been appointed to Internal Sales Project Support, which will enhance her strengths and skillset.
Beccy commented: “These last 7 years at Peak have flown by and I have thoroughly enjoyed the challenges working within a number of roles predominantly within the Sales Team. Peak have offered me fantastic opportunities which have enabled me to grow professionally and personally.
“They have been a great support throughout my maternity leave during the pandemic, allowing me to come back to work 4 days a week whilst my children are still young. I am looking forward to my new role and getting back to some sort of normality in 2021.”
Katrina Simmons joined Peak in 2017 and has supported the team over the last year, recently being appointed as Internal Sales Team Leader.
Katrina commented: “Whilst working at Peak, I’ve always felt encouraged to expand my knowledge and development. This has been via utilising the in-house knowledge from other experienced colleagues as well as having access to outside courses.
“Within the company we have years of industry knowledge and everyone is more than happy to pass on this knowledge to help aid individual development. Last year I gained my BTEC level 2 certificate in team leadership, which has helped me secure a promotion within the company. I’m now looking to start my level 3 which will further my development alongside my new position.”
The company is a UK leader in the manufacture and supply of polyethylene (PE) multi-utility pipeline solutions. You can find out more about the company here.
