A growing East Lancashire company has opened its first office in Scotland.

Operating from offices in Bishopton, Sales Geek Glasgow will be headed by experienced sales director, Peter Barclay, who brings with him senior sales experience from a career stretching back to 1992.

Having generated multi-million-pound increases in sales for companies across the UK, including Marshalls plc and ATG Access, Barclay’s previous position as group sales director for textile company The Beal Group saw his return to Scotland in 2017.

Launched in Blackburn in 2017, Sales Geek was named as a North West Most Exciting Company by North West Business Insider magazine in June 2021.

The fast-growing company, which has doubled in size every year since launch, delivers a blend of sales training services both online and face-to-face across the UK and internationally, while its Sales Geek Hub app also has users across the globe. 

On launching Sales Geek Glasgow, Peter Barclay said: “Throughout my career in sales I’ve proved many times that improving sales processes can lead to multi-million pound growth for companies big and small.

“Sales Geek’s approach chimes with my own in the best way to achieve maximum sales. It’s not about swaggering in and backslapping, it’s about taking a strategic approach and working in a lean way that means sales come to you rather than you pushing them onto anybody.

“Sales Geek is on a mission to change the way the world perceives sales, helping professionals achieve excellence and restore pride in what they do.

“Our part-time sales director solution enables businesses of all sizes to leverage the benefits of having a focussed sales strategy without the typical high salary costs of a full-time sales director.”
