Robert Devine- Regional Sales Manager, UK and Eire
Robert started his career with Ansell in the UK as a Territory Sales Manager for Scotland in 2014. After delivering consistent growth to his region, Robert was promoted to Vertical Sales Specialist Oil & Gas, Utilities & Public Sector 2 years later. His success has continued in the Vertical Specialist role and he again returned growth for his Vertical in what was at the time a challenging Energy market. In April 2018, Robert was appointed as Regional Sales Manager UK & Eire and is responsible for planning, direction, control and coordination of the sales activities with direct line responsibility for the Territory Sales Manager team.
In early 2021 Robert was additionally tasked with developing the end user Key Account strategy for the Region and has recruited a team of Key Account Specialist’s to grow sales by leveraging Ansell’s value proposition. Robert says that although he had no historical PPE sales experience joining Ansell from renewables sector, Ansell leadership identified his transferrable skills fairly quickly and strongly supported him with continuous training and development plans allowing him to further grow. Through his participation in various projects, Robert feels he can share and implement his own ideas and demonstrate his capabilities. Robert says: “At Ansell our leaders always take the time to recognize individual or team efforts. My ultimate motivation is the pursuit of sales excellence for my region through the coaching and development of my team. In 2014 my aim was to join a Global leader that could provide a transparent and achievable career progression path, and ultimately my decision to join Ansell has 100% turned out to be the correct one!”
