Mobility veteran Andy Weston has started a new role with Better Mobility after 14 years of working at GBL Wheelchairs.
Weston has joined the Hemel Hempstead-based dealer as a senior powerchair specialist and will be responsible for assessing powered mobility and power add-ons on a daily basis and specialising in alternative controls.
Weston worked his way up through the years from the workshop to servicing at GBL. After eight years working in mobility servicing he progressed to GBL’s sales team where he focused on powered mobility and powered assist equipment.
A spokesperson for Better Mobility said that specialising in powered mobility, Weston will provide the dealer with even more experience in its seating specialist team, alongside its active and passive specialists.
“Andy will also specialise in high end powerchairs with specialist controls for our more complex requirements. We’re always looking to improve and expand our knowledge of each area and Andy will help us do just that with our powered mobility.”
Better Mobility has recently been on a recruitment drive in order to support the growth it is experiencing.
At the end of last year it promoted internally and is planning to bring in more staff as part of its strategy to grow its team to “keep up with sales”.
Natasha Warner-Mizon, who has worked in the visual merchandise departments of Harrods, Karen Millen, and Tesco head offices, stepped up after joining her family’s business in 2015 on a temporary basis.
The expanding company is also looking to increase the maintenance side of the business by bolstering its service team and recruiting a new mobility service engineer.
The retailer regards its service operation as a highly important part of the business and said it means it is able to ensure customers they will be taken care of following a purchase.
