We’re dedicated to growing our business all over the country, so our customers can access a wide range of highly skilled professionals wherever they are. We currently have regional offices in Leeds and Reading, and we’re pleased to announce our latest addition: Bristol.
Here’s 60 seconds with our new Bristol Regional Director, Salvatore, whose background in business consultancy makes him the perfect candidate to bring Get Ahead VA to a new region.
Name: Salvatore Catania
Area(s) of expertise: Experienced in selling and delivering market-leading products and services across the science and technology sectors. Skilled in: consultative sales, proposal writing and presentation, bid management, forecasting, and business strategy development and implementation. I am an experienced team builder, coach, and manager with a keen eye for talent.
What did you do before you joined Get Ahead VA? I joined Get Ahead VA in September 2018. Before that I worked as a business consultant, helping a number of SMEs in the science sector to improve and grow their businesses.
Career highlight to date: In January 2002 I was invited to set up and manage all aspects of the UK subsidiary for a German manufacturer of scientific laboratory instrumentation. I designed a lean organisational structure, set business processes, and developed strategy and vision, whilst ensuring delivery of all targets. I was responsible for recruitment and all aspects of human performance issues and P&L. With the help of a talented team we grew the business and increased our market share year on year for well over a decade.
Plans for the future: To grow the Get Ahead business in the Bristol/Somerset region and build a customer-focused team to work with me in delivering an outstanding service to our clients.
