A Harrogate-based resin driveway company has expanded its head office team.
Helen Wade-Smith, whose previous experience includes working as a VIP client services executive and media sales consultant, is taking on the role of office manager at YRC Resin Drives of Distinction.
The University of Edinburgh graduate – who undertook an internship in a Hong Kong-based advertising agency – will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the team’s work schedules, directors’ diaries, customer and supplier liaison.
YRC’s managing director, Mark Kennedy, who launched the company in 2007, said: “In the short time Helen has been with us, she has proved to be a real asset.
“Having her as office manager means we can concentrate on what we’re good at, laying residential and commercial resin drives, whilst knowing the office is being well managed and the needs of our customers are being looked after. She is also experienced in managing suppliers too.”
Helen said: “In my previous role as a media sales consultant I got to know Mark and the YRC team well. And, from being a client – he is now my boss!
“YRC Resin Drives of Distinction is a great local business and I’m very much looking forward to making my mark within it.”
