DTL welcomes Client Development Advisor, Chris Edgar
15 May 2019
Chris Edgar has joined DTL’s Client Development team based in York as a Client Development Advisor. Reporting to Client Development Manager, Jon Savage, Chris will be developing DTL’s customer base by working with both new and existing clients and ensuring that their training needs are catered for.
Chris' career so far
Chris has worked in telecoms and IT infrastructure sales for over 25 years so brings with him a wealth of sales experience. Most recently he worked in an IT-based role at NG Bailey, the UK’s leading independent engineering and services business. Throughout his field sales career Chris has become familiar with a number of highly regulated industries and has successfully gained an in-depth knowledge in regards to the regulations that surround many of DTL’s training areas such as working at height and asbestos. Chris said “I’m confident that this knowledge will help me to advise clients on the most appropriate training courses for their needs.”
Making the most of apprenticeship opportunities
Chris continued, “I’m looking forward to making a positive impact in the team, helping to ensure our clients receive the highest quality service and that their people enjoy equally excellent training. I’m especially looking forward to speaking with clients about apprenticeships and how hiring an apprentice can really benefit their business – we run some fantastic apprentice training programmes here at DTL and I’m eager to help businesses make the most of their Apprenticeship Levy funds as well as make sure that those looking to progress in their career with an apprenticeship receive quality training.”
A dedicated Manchester United fan
Chris lives just south of York and is a dedicated Manchester United fan through thick and thin, most recently (through his own omission) thin! In his spare time he enjoys watching films and getting out into the fresh air for a long walk in the countryside.
