Claire Banks

Business Development Manager

As the Business Development Manager for the product design section of GX it is Claire’s responsibility to promote the design engineers expertises and services to prospective clients. She initialy acts as the point of contact, introducing new clients to the right project manager.

Claire’s knowledge of product design is unrivalled, having been with GX for the past 24 years. Through her original role as the Commercial Assistant Claire was part of the team to implement the quality procedures needed to comply with ISO 9001. This understanding of a project lifecycle has proved invaluable in her more recent role as the Business Development Manager, a position that she has held since 2004.

One of Claire’s key dislikes is bad manners, she remains true to her personal mantra that ‘manners cost nothing’ which has made her so successful in her role as Business Development Manager. She is committed to ensuring that product design engineers consistently bring a fresh perspective to each and every project and has become instrumental in promoting their range of services to the military, medical, automotive and security sectors that they work with.

When not involved with the company’s sales and marketing Claire leads an incredibly active and adrenalin fuelled life. She can frequently be seen whizzing down the Welsh mountains cross country mountain biking, seeking powder snow in the Alps to push her snowboarding skills to the limit, or grappling with an opponent when practicing Jujitsu.
