Guardtech hires new Business Development Manager

Ms Daisy Friend

Guardtech Cleanrooms has continued its recent trend of expanding the business by recruiting a new Business Development Manager.

Daisy Friend follows the recent additions of Quality Lead Martin Sewell, Financial Controller Heidi Utley and Marketing Manager Joe Shackley.

Ms Friend arrives at the Haverhill firm with a strong background in sales and project management, with her most recent role being the same position at Jet2Holidays – the UK’s second-largest tour operator.

As well as a spell at Guardtech’s local neighbours Screenworks, Ms Friend was responsible for co- ordinating laboratory refurbishment and equipment sales at Interfocus – and so she’s ready to build on her experience in the medical device sector.

“I’m really enjoying my new role at Guardtech,” she said. “The whole team have been super helpful and made me feel welcome from day one.”

Guardtech offer a range of products and services, from turnkey construction cleanroom projects to smaller-scale modular cleanroom builds and self-assembly ISOPOD controlled environments.

And Ms Friend is particularly keen to build on the company’s recent success in supplying their range of CleanCube mobile testing units and portable labs – which are proving critical in the UK’s tussle with the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It is great to work in an industry that is so vital during the present climate,” she added. “I’m really looking forward to the challenges this brings over the next few months.”

Guardtech’s Operations Director Conor Barwise is proud of the firm’s commitment to recruitment in such difficult times and is hopeful that the team can continue to grow. “We’re delighted to welcome Daisy to the team – as well as all our other new recruits – and we hope they’re the first of many more.

“We take our commitment to the local area very seriously and are keen to champion and support local businesses and people as much as we can.”
