Meet the team…Bernard Bergin.
As part of our meet the team series, Bernard Bergin, Service Sales Director at Sheridan Lifts took some time out of his schedule to discuss his role and how he sees the company.
Bernard is a recent addition to the management team of Sheridan Lifts having joined the company in November 2012. Bernard, whilst being new to the company, is no stranger to the business having worked in the lift trade for over 37 years.
He started life in the lift industry as a repair engineer, before progressing to working on major modernisations, sales of new lift installations, sales of minor repairs and maintenance agreements. His last role prior to Sheridan’s was that of National Service Sales Manager for a large independent lift company.
When asked about what attracted him to the role at Sheridan’s, he was quick to enthuse about the youthful exuberance on display, mixed in with the experienced industry professionals who head up the management team “Having being in the industry for a long time, it is easy to become stagnant and stale. The Sheridan Lifts team is full of hunger, excitement and a genuine keenness to develop and improve – it was an easy decision for me to want to be a part of it”
Bernard pointed to the ‘can-do’ attitude of the team, and the range of new ideas that have seen Sheridan Lifts enhance their reputation and standing in the industry, as to some of the key facets of the success of the company.
The main remit of Bernard and his team is to further improve Sheridan Lifts standing within the lift consultant and facilities management market places, and whilst his role is primarily based around lift servicing, he has also taken on responsibility for delivering major lift modernisation and lift repair projects.
His main hobbies and interests away from work are cycling, and he recently completed the coast to coast cycling challenge, raising money for charity and completing 144 miles.
