Many will know industry figure Chris Globe, originally employed at Liniar to head up the Commercial Sales function in 2010. With his marketing background, when Liniar needed extra support in that area, he was ideally placed to step in and help – launching his own business, Inside The Box Marketing at the same time.
Throughout his time with Liniar, Chris has always been a strong ambassador for the systems house, writing countless articles and press releases and project-managing Liniar’s presence at the Ecobuild exhibition and the inaugural FIT Show in 2013.
As Liniar has continued to grow, so has the client base at Inside The Box.
Servicing a wide range of clients across and beyond the industry, Chris now provides PR and marketing support to companies both large and small. In addition, Chris launched the Independent Ratings Company last year, enabling clients to add value through independent customer feedback.
In the last few years, Liniar has boosted its own internal marketing function – with a team led by Marketing Director Sue Davenport creating online and offline collateral to support Liniar customers and managing communication through a variety of channels, including the recent launch of a brand new website.
The parties’ mutual success has now led to Liniar and Chris agreeing to formally part ways, so Chris can focus on his other clients and take his business to even greater heights. The Commercial Sales function at Liniar will be managed in-house by Charlotte Curtis, Business Development Co-ordinator and the current regional sales team.
Roger Hartshorn comments: “I’d like to say thank you to Chris for everything he has helped us to achieve at Liniar, and to wish him every success with his business ventures. I’m sure there will be many more opportunities for us to work together again in the future, so it’s not goodbye – more ‘au revoir’ for now.”
Chris concurs: “From my point of view, without the help and support of Roger and all the team at Liniar we would have found it difficult to start our business at the height of the recession. Working with them over the past few years has been an absolute pleasure – it is rare that you find such enthusiasm across a whole workplace and their determination to innovate and to be different is unrelenting.”
“This is the perfect time for both of us to part company in terms of trading, but I have no doubt that our relationship will remain as strong as ever. Everyone at Liniar has our best wishes and it will be great to see them become real industry leaders in every sense.”
