Alison joined the Stone Zone in April 2019, and after embracing the new challenge as a Sales Executive, she has since been promoted to Ferndown Depot Manager! Alison first joined the industry back in 2005 as a business account handler to then an office manager. This was where Alison discovered her passion and ability to give high levels of customer service. She's excited to now get stuck into her new role of managing all Ferndown branch operations.
What’s your favourite part of the job?
That's a hard one to answer, I have 2 things... My first would have to be meeting customers face to face and putting faces to names as opposed to over the telephones. My second would be seeing the transformation of the Ferndown depot taking shape after 2 fulls days of rubbish clearance and a really good tidy up. It's starting to take shape just after a few days and I cannot wait to see the depot in a months time!
What’s your favourite product we sell?
That’s a hard one…. naturally I would have to say turf and topsoil but it’s been refreshing to learn new products, especially paving.
What’s your favourite colour?
Duck Egg Blue or Turquoise
What would your dream garden look like?
I would have an allotment at the end of my garden with large raised beds, greenhouse and polytunnel…… maybe a spa area and in this heat a swimming pool…
If you could have any super power what would it be?
If you won a million pounds, what would you do with it?
Have as much fun as possible…. spend it and retire.
To get in the spirit of our newly added Stone Zone Colouring Zone, Alison took a few pebbles home for her daughter to colour in, but got rather creative herself…
It started as a simple flower design…
Then along came Tommy the Turtle…
And then a pebble was transformed into a magical fairy garden! Just shows the Colouring Zone isn’t just for kids…
