A Bristol-based business has made three promotions as it aligns itself to achieve an end of year turnover target of £6 million.
Waste Source is based at the Tobacco Factory in the city and has announced that Clayton Davies, 25, Melissa Baxter-Hunter, 27 and Alice Coram, 26, have all been promoted.
Clayton joined the company fifteen months ago and has been promoted from Account Executive to Junior Account Manager, for the businesses construction customers.
He has worked his way up the business following a mountain biking injury, less than three years ago, which saw him break his back in several places.
Melissa has been promoted from Account Executive to Junior Account Manager for Waste Source’s hospitality customers. Completing the promotions is Alice, who takes up the role of Customer Services Supervisor.
Chris Holland, who is Managing Director and founder of the business alongside Jon Free, commented: “This shows that you can come into the business and quickly work your way up the ranks if you show the right skills and aptitude. All of them have worked so hard and deserve these promotions on merit.
“It’s also refreshing to see that all three of them are under the age of 27, which shows that no matter what your age is you can make it in business and have your talent recognised.”
The company, founded in 2010, aims to make waste disposal a simple and environmentally-friendly process. In its last fiscal year, it pushed turnover past £3.5 million, which was up 50% on the previous twelve months.
The company operate across multiple sectors including retail, hospitality, property and construction among others.
