Widd Signs Appoints Business Development Manager As It Looks To Fuel Further Growth

Leeds-headquartered digital and traditional signage manufacturer Widd Signs has appointed a second business development manager to its 80-strong team as it looks to grow its presence in several key markets.

Jac Lloyd-Jones will be responsible for expanding the company’s client base in a number of key markets, with a particular focus on the construction, architecture, design and commercial sectors.

He brings a wealth of experience to the team, having operated within the signage industry for almost 15 years working on an array of high-profile six-figure projects.

Lloyd-Jones will work alongside existing business development manager Damon Kirkham, who previously operated for thirteen years as sales manager at Spectrum Sign & Display Ltd before the company was acquired by Widd Signs in early 2020.

Commenting on his appointment, Widd Signs head of sales Peter Harris said: “Jac has a proven track record when it comes to delivering high-value projects and forging strong working relationships with clients, and we’re delighted to bring him on board as we look to accelerate our growth in a number of key sectors.”

On his move to Widd Signs, Jac said: “Widd Signs’ reputation for quality, craftsmanship and innovation is second to none and I’m excited by the opportunity to support the company’s growth strategy and build its presence in a number of key sectors which I’m already very familiar with.”

Earlier this year, Widd Signs completed the acquisition of Spectrum Sign & Display and its new 20,000 sq ft site in St Helens as part of the company’s exciting expansion plans, adding additional expertise and boosting its in-house manufacturing capacity and capabilities.

In May, the company launched Auto-Q, a state-of-the-art occupancy management system to help retailers faced with new Covid-19 requirements measure the number of customers in-store. It’s part of a wider range of solutions offered by the company to help retailers to operate safely, which includes antimicrobial acrylic protection screens, floor and wall graphics and hand-sanitising stations.
