AaGlobal has enhanced its private sector activity with a key appointment as it enters its 25th year.
As the newly-appointed Business Development Officer specialising in the private sector, Chantelle Akdemir is tasked with raising the company’s profile across the north of England.
Chantelle, daughter of AaGlobal CEO Kirk Akdemir, has already been working from the company’s Worcester office for nearly three years.
AaGlobal’s work is divided between the private and public sectors and the company holds a number of significant contracts with local authorities, health authorities and purchasing organisations.
Expansion to Hull in 2011 was part of AaGlobal’s strategy of developing a private sector client base which includes local and international operators. The company is also a corporate supporter of the Hull and Humber Chamber of Commerce International Trade Centre.
Kirk said: “We opened in Hull in anticipation of the buzz which the city and surrounding region is now experiencing and we are being rewarded for our confidence in the area.
“We also operate around the world – during 2016 we serviced another international convention for Toyota – and the focus of Chantelle’s work will be to build that private sector business by linking with clients directly and by representing us within organisations including the Chamber and the Bondholders.
“Chantelle has been heavily involved in our production department and she will be drawing on her comprehensive understanding of all our processes in looking after the needs of our private sector customers. She also has considerable marketing expertise and heads our social media activities, which is another area that we are looking to develop.”
Chantelle said: “My new role means that I’ll be spending more time in Hull supporting existing clients and making new contacts, and that’s something I’ve already started doing with the help of the Chamber.
“It’s an exciting time for AaGlobal as we build on the success already achieved by our team in Hull and look to deliver our services much further afield. It is also exciting for me personally to be spending more time in the UK City of Culture, something which we are sure will bring great opportunities for a wide range of businesses.”
