WHEN Marie Richards started out as a 21-year-old sales advisor at a Bellway development in Kidsgrove, she never imagined where her career would take her.
The 43-year-old has recently been appointed as Sales Director Designate for the housebuilder’s West Midlands division, which is based at Relay Point in Tamworth.
Marie, who lives in Eccleshall, said: “I’ve spent my entire adult life working for Bellway and I can honestly say I love the people and the team here. I love the familiarity of working for a company which has been my home for 22 years.
“I’m delighted to have been promoted to this position. It certainly wasn’t something I thought would happen when I started out!
“I’ve been encouraged to take on new challenges throughout my time with Bellway and I think I’m lucky to have great support from my fellow colleagues.
“This is a really challenging role but I’m enjoying the day-to-day variety of my work.”
Marie has been promoted at an exciting time for the West Midlands division, with the company moving its headquarters to Centurion Court in Tamworth to provide space for growth in the region.
The division, which is building new homes at developments across the West Midlands, Staffordshire, Shropshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Leicestershire, also has new sites coming soon in Shrewsbury, Stafford, Rolleston on Dove in Staffordshire and Doveridge in Derbyshire.
