Leading industrial trainer, AIS Training has appointed a new business development manager in Grimsby to support key clients across the region and raise awareness of its services in the Humber, Midlands and South of England.

Geoff Croft, aged 42, from Scotter village in West Lindsay will be responsible for promoting AIS Training’s extensive portfolio of wind, oil and gas and industrial courses to regional businesses and those further afield to help them develop a highly skilled, safe and competent workforce.

Originally hailing from Liverpool, Geoff, who is married with two children, has a solid background in sales having worked in senior business development roles for the past ten years with organisations such as the Grimsby Institute, security specialist Orbis and Ingeus.

Prior to sales, Geoff had a career in the forces and worked abroad in places like Marbella and Egypt.

Geoff said: “Joining AIS Training really excites me. The company has a unique and highly innovative approach to business, which explains why it has grown so phenomenally since its inception ten years ago. AIS Training works very closely with its clients to truly understand their needs and provides everything from online training management to free finance, accommodation and tailored training solutions to help improve safety and productivity. I’m really looking forward to talking to regional businesses to find out how we can help them now and in the future. My aim is for AIS Training at CATCH to become THE place to go for GWO wind training in the region.”
