Robert Sheldon Appointed as National Commercial Manager for Peter Cox

Peter Cox Ltd, part of the Business Services group Rentokil Initial, is a UK market leader for offering a variety of different property treatments including damp proofing, waterproofing, wall stabilisation and timber preservation. The company was first founded in 1951 and currently employs more than 240 staff in their regional branches located around the country. Peter Cox has announced this week that they have appointed Robert Sheldon as the national commercial manager; a new role for the property treatment company.

Prior to this appointment, Robert Sheldon was the regional manager for the south. Sheldon has spent four years as a regional manager and helped Peter Cox double their revenue in the London and South East branch over the course of his first 12 months in the role. Hopefully he will be able to make as much of a difference in his new role within the company.  Before he was a part of Peter Cox Ltd, Robert Sheldon worked in the insurance industry. For 10 years Sheldon surveyed fire and flood damage and acted as a mentor for franchises around the UK.

It is thought that Sheldon will now lead the Peter Cox’s nationwide commercial team in order to help develop their operational and business development capabilities. In his new role, Sheldon will be working to oversee the key account managers across the UK in order to develop the company’s specialist service strategies, as well as managing the relationships with suppliers and working with the marketing team in order to improve commercial marketing strategies.

Peter Cox is keen to expand their commercial sector services. The Commercial sector covers all activities that is non-residential and is considered a fruitful market to be a part of. Peter Cox is already the leading company in building preservation and hopefully with the new appointment, the company will be able to keep its top position and continue to develop.
