Our top team at The Right Fuelcard Company (TRFC) – which runs the Bayford Foundation – is marking another fantastic milestone as we further accelerating our growth with the launch of a new office in York.
We’re over the moon as we enjoy unprecedented expansion. Since launching in 2011 as an independent distributor of Shell, Esso and Keyfuels fuel cards to UK businesses – our team has grown to 52-strong.
Retaining our headquarters in Hunslet, the expansion to offices at Apollo House in Eboracum Way, York, follows the opening of our new Harrogate sales office at the end of last year.
Recruiting an additional 10 sales staff – and planning to further boost the team by 20 per cent across 2017-2018 – we’ve achieved our best year of sales to date across the last 12 months and we’re forecasting 14 per cent sales growth in the year ahead.
The York office is headed by our sales manager Ros Shaw who has amassed over a decade of experience in the fuel card industry and was formerly head of sales for The Bayford Group of businesses run by serial entrepreneur Jonathan Turner.
Says Ros: “Being back with TRFC feels like ‘coming home’ and it’s great to be playing an instrumental role in the company’s development at this formative period as we grow the York team with a strong pipeline of business.”
IIP accredited and a committed ‘people champion’, we invest substantially in training and developing its employees to reach their full potential – recently hosting a fun day in York with a treasure hunt for the team to let off steam.
Comments Joshua Wilson, the first oil trader at TRFC’s new York office: “I was seeking a career with a company which is going places and has a dynamic vision. This is my first sales role which is challenging and rewarding and I’m looking forward to see our team develop.”
Concludes business director Adam Walsh: “It’s brilliant to have Ros on board – she brings a wealth of experience to this role and to the business. This latest milestone likewise reinforces that we are on track to realise our ambitious growth strategy and vision.”
