The former Emerging Markets Relationship Manager with the £3.7 million turnover Ellesmere Port technology management company played a key role in researching, locating and then negotiating the deals for two prime sites in Scandinavia.
Now she has been promoted to the position of Business Development Director for both Arena Instrumentation (Sweden) and Arena Instrumentation (Denmark).
“It’s wonderful news, especially as I’m now being relocated to Sweden,” said 27 years old Lucy. “Being so involved with this hugely important search for Arena’s first overseas base was an honour.
“It was hard work but having found exactly the right locations and then being fortunate enough to appoint some extremely highly qualified staff, I am now convinced this is just the first phase of a rolling overseas presence for Arena.
“As Britain’s largest independent calibration and maintenance service provider, Arena can offer a cost-effective service that is attractive to a wide range of client companies in sectors as diverse as pharmaceutical, research and development and healthcare.
“That expertise is also in demand elsewhere in the world and we look forward to offering the same level of service to our Swedish and Danish clients. Whether they want equipment sourcing, maintaining or disposing of, Arena can offer professional asset management and competitive prices.”
Stockport born Lucy, who now lives at Marton near Congleton, joined Arena as a technical clerk just four and a half years ago. However she quickly rose through the ranks.
Arena Managing Director David Dawe said: “Lucy’s invaluable work on the Swedish and then the Danish bases has clearly demonstrated she deserves this promotion to the board.
“Not only did she thoroughly research the markets, she went over there and physically identified the sites that were right for Arena. Then she produced high quality management reports on the viability and sustainability of these overseas operations – and backed them up with the figures.
“When we gave her the go-ahead she then set about finding the personnel who would help us establish our bases.
“Now we’re recruiting and both sites will be up and running by the end of this year. That’s why Lucy is being transferred to Sweden. After all, who better to ensure our Scandinavia operations are successful?”
