Freight forwarding, mail, courier and logistics specialist, Spatial – part of the fast-growing Keswick Enterprises group – has appointed Jil Towersey to the newly created position of Commercial Development Manager at its Castle Donington head office.
Jil has many years’ experience in shipping, freight forwarding and customer services. She joins Spatial from logistics giant CEVA, where she has worked since 2008 – latterly as Key Account Sales & Development Manager. Her previous experience includes periods at Massey Ferguson/Agco, Danzas AEI and Caterpillar UK, where her roles included Senior Customer Services Coordinator, Export Shipping Coordinator and Senior Export Agent.
At Spatial Jil has responsibility for driving and directing the commercial team and developing the company’s products. She also sets targets for the sales team, with the objective of growing revenues and helping the company to achieve its ambition of doubling turnover within the next five years.
Bryan Hindle, Managing Director of Spatial, commented: "Jil and I have previously worked together at AEI and CEVA. In both cases we took loss-making operations and turned them into one of the most successful parts of the business. The role of Commercial Development Manager was created to promote Spatial’s growth and to take the business to the next level in its development, and I am sure Jil has the abilities and expertise necessary to help achieve these goals."
Jil Towersey is a member of the Institute of Export and lives in Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire. Away from the workplace, her interests include travel, theatre and swimming.
