Name: Chris Sexton

Company: Knauf Insulation – nominated by Travis Perkins

Supporting Statement:

“Chris has been an absolute asset to Knauf in his role as an account manager. He is knowledgeable, always clear in his communications, shows understanding and is collaborative.

“I took over two very large categories, in insulation and roofing, and I had to contend with a volatile market, where most vendors were out on allocation. It was a difficult time.

“As the account manager for one of my key suppliers, Chris has proven an invaluable source of information. He could see I was spread thinly and so used our time together wisely. He built a quick rapport with me and understood how I wanted to trade this category. We have worked together to trade through a tough allocation period with positive results.

“He has helped me with my new category assistant and has helped introduce her to the building and merchant world. He always makes himself available, and is willing to answer questions and support her, which helps takes further pressure off me.”
