Moneypenny meets increased demand from manufacturing sector with new appointment

Moneypenny has strengthened its sector expertise with the appointment of Jo Lockwood to head its new manufacturing and engineering team.

With an increase in the number of manufacturing and engineering businesses choosing outsourced communications support to improve business efficiencies and the customer experience, Moneypenny has appointed Jo to lead a dedicated team providing telephone answering, live chat, outsourced switchboard and customer contact support to the sector.

Jo joins as business development manager and brings more than 20 years of experience in account management, customer handling, customer service and business strategy to the role. She has previously held senior positions in manufacturing businesses including Bruni Erben, Verallia UK formerly Allied Glass and Troy Foods.

Jo Lockwood said: “With customers at the heart of the sectors’ continued growth, it’s crucial they’re listened to, heard and supported with professional and consistent customer care, every step of the way. I’m looking forward to putting my experience in this fast moving and complex sector to good use and helping businesses within it to improve first impressions and customer care as well as unlock greater efficiencies.”

One engineering business that’s already benefiting from Moneypenny’s outsourced communication expertise is Mechanical and Electrical engineering consultancy, FHP ESS.

Kerry Francis, HR & Administration Manager at FHP ESS, said: “Having seen an increase in calls being put through to us since using Moneypenny, it’s made us really think about how many we were missing beforehand.

“Ayesha, our dedicated Moneypenny receptionist, and the team take away the worry of planning phone cover if support staff are on leave, they ensure every call is answered, and save us valuable time – which enables us to concentrate on other important aspects of the business instead.”
