Signs of Sales Success: Kingston Signmakers Rewarded at Top Industry Event

Author: FASTSIGNS® Kingston Upon Thames

The Kingston branch of global signage and graphics franchise, FASTSIGNS, has been rewarded for its remarkable sales achievements during the past 12 months.

Based on Ewell Road, FASTSIGNS® Kingston Upon Thames racked up the third highest sales figures across the FASTSIGNS UK network in 2021. The team were awarded an accolade in recognition of their efforts at this year’s FASTSIGNS UK convention and awards ceremony, which took place at Staffordshire’s St George’s Park.

Each year, the global signage and visual communications specialist’s annual convention recognises the franchise network’s successes over the course of the year. It brings the FASTSIGNS UK teams and suppliers together to help share industry knowledge, culminating in a grand gala dinner after the two - day convention.

Mark Phelps, director at FASTSIGNS® Kingston Upon Thames said of the achievement:

“Although lockdowns might feel like a distant memory for lots of people, the reality is that we entered 2021 feeling quite uncertain. However, our local business community has proven its resilience and throughout the year many companies have come back with renewed energy.

“It’s been fantastic to help them achieve their ambitions, with so many rebranding and communications packages completed. Our success is down to a true collaborative effort between our sales and production staff, ensuring the customer experience and quality of signage is the best it can be.”

Mark Phelps was also recognised as a serving Central Marketing Board Member at FASTSIGNS UK, alongside Andy Dearman, franchisee of FASTSIGNS Hull.

John Davies, managing director at FASTSIGNS UK added:

“The determination of our team never fails to impress me. After navigating the difficulties of Covid-19, every franchise has emerged stronger than ever. They’ve been there as industries have reopened again, helping them to realise lots of exciting marketing projects."

“Our sales staff are a crucial connection between each centre and local enterprises, but it’s the full workforce that helps to join up the dots, and push each project through successfully. This win is testament to the remarkable achievements of all at FASTSIGNS® Kingston Upon Thames, and their strong leadership.”

FASTSIGNS® Kingston Upon Thames has been operating for 22 years, and has a strong presence in the area’s business community.
