I managed APCOA's Business Development Support Team from 2006-2008 and served a team of 6 Business Development Managers. We worked continuously on bids and tenders for parking service provision into local authority, retail, hospital, airport & rail parking and commercial premises.
In addition to supporting the bid function with professionally branded proposals, I ran a programme of marketing activity which included development of a website, brochures, corporate gifts, sponsorship of the British Parking Awards and a group of local exhibitions.
Paul Bird, Managing Director at the time said;
"During my time as MD at APCOA (north) I had the pleasure of working with Gillian during a challenging period of company turnround and re-engineering. Gillian's role included the task of re-inventing and supervising certain aspects of the business development (sales) function. She handled this task professionally and showed an ability to lead her team well. As an individual she was a joy to work with and I have no hesitation in endorsing her."
