Suresite adds to sales team

Preston-based Suresite Group has appointed Craig Nugent as the company’s new head of sales and recruited two new business development managers.

The firm provides specialist services to the forecourt and retail sector and has been investing in team growth since the appointment of new CEO Steve Hoban earlier this year.

Craig brings more than 30 years of international experience in sales and operational management. He joins from Certas Energy where he headed the company’s dealer sales.

He also holds a wealth of forecourt and retail experience, having managed dealer relationships across around 900 Gulf and own branded stations, and has previously worked with Shell, Chevron, Eastwood Park, and Ryko International.

Craig said: "This is an exciting time to join Suresite and I am delighted to be part of the ambitious plans for growth whilst continuing to deliver the highest levels of customer service."

Alex Young and Gavin Harrison have also joined the sales team as business development managers.

Alex brings extensive knowledge and experience in sales and account management, having previously worked for Ribble Fuel, CoolKit LTD, R&J Builders Hardware, and Fuel Card Services.

Gavin Harrison comes with sales experience from organisations such as Wowcher, Living Social, Yell, and Capital Bank.

Steve Hoban, CEO at Suresite, said: "I’m very pleased to see Craig, Alex, and Gavin join our new sales and commercial team. They bring a wealth of experience to our payments and fuel services and strengthen the Suresite family. I am looking forward to seeing them help us improve our offering, expand our services to existing customers and expose us to new businesses to support our exciting growth plans."
