Meet the Team!
Julie Futcher - Managing Director
Julie started The Sales Manager in 2015 following positive feedback from networking groups. She would present “sound-bites” of training she used to deliver to her teams whilst working in recruitment. These remarks about her 10-minute presentations sowed a seed, and from there The Sales Manager was born! Prior to running her own business, Julie’s background is 23 years within sales, predominately within the recruitment industry.
Her favourite hobby is amateur dramatics which she started doing in 1994 (yes, she is that old!) and we can’t let this opportunity pass without mentioning her love of Gin; her favourite is Warner Edwards Rhubarb.
Courtney Lott - Sales Generator Champion
Courtney is the Sales Generator Champion at The Sales Manager. Her main role is to ensure the smooth running of the LinkedIn lead generation programme, which is she enthusiastic about. Courtney thrives on helping de-mystify the world of selling on social media and giving people the confidence and tools to use it to their advantage. Helping people is her passion!
Courtney worked in customer service previously and has brought the passion for solving problems and helping people with her to The Sales Manager. In her spare time, she can be found in the kitchen cooking something delicious with a glass of wine in hand or talking to anyone who will listen about her latest houseplant purchase.
Beth Williams - Dark Lord of Marketing
Beth originally came to The Sales Manager as a freelance blogger and marketing exec. She gradually made herself at home and now works alongside the rest of the team under the title ‘Dark Lord of Marketing’ (perhaps a warning to anyone offering to let their staff choose their own jobs titles?!).
Beth has a first-class degree in Anthropology from Sussex University and spent 3 years teaching dance, pulling pints and running music events before settling into her current career path. She has a passion for learning, a love of all things nerdy (hello analytics!), and a borderline obsessive penchant for timekeeping.
Beth’s job at The Sales Manager is to keep social media alive, write blogs, coordinate guest bloggers, create content and coerce her co-workers into filming silly dance videos!
