Meet Faye Young, Group Business Development Manager
Faye began her career with an apprenticeship in Mechanical Engineering as part of a training scheme at FläktWoods. Her passion for people and the built environment saw her become chair of the Young Engineers East Anglia Division early in her career. Faye’s successful time at FläktWoods saw her take on posts around the world, in South East Asia and Europe. Her previous experience includes Technical and Distribution Sales Management and Operational Marketing.
Faye joined Group SCS in 2014 as Regional Manager (London and South), opening and taking charge of our London office in Finsbury Square and overseeing customer relationships in the area. Her time at FläktWoods ensured she had great expertise in fan systems and at Group SCS she has worked on some interesting smoke and building automation projects, using her expertise and skills, and achieving great results.
Faye’s current role as Group Business Development Manager involves building and maintaining customer relationships across the business so that we can better understand and adapt to their needs. She also works with clients and developers to promote Group SCS’s Modular Solutions for Smoke Ventilation and is responsible for our product distribution business.
Faye said: “I enjoy the variety of what I get involved with and the responsibility of what I do. Coming from a large corporate organisation to a small business is refreshing for me. We can change and be really flexible and adapt to our clients’ demands which will contribute to our success in the future.”
In her spare time, Faye enjoys keeping fit by playing squash and practising yoga. She has previously completed two marathons – the Paris Marathon along with a number of her Group SCS colleagues, raising cash for CRASH, the construction industry’s charity, and Berlin. She is currently deciding which one to do next.
