About Lewis Clarke

I started at KB’s after applying for a trainee glazier in 2013 with no experience in the industry and no clear idea of what I wanted to do as a career. During my 4 years in the glass department I received training through courses and colleague training until I was able to run jobs and have my own van. In 2017 I was offered the chance to take part in a training course called find the leader in you, to develop skills with the view to move into a management/leadership role.

I completed the yearlong training programme and from there it has helped me achieve various roles, from supervisor to shop manager, then branch manager in a small branch, and now in a larger branch. I wouldn’t have ever pursued a career as a branch manager, but through the support of colleagues, line managers and the senior management team I’ve found a career path that I have really enjoyed and I am very passionate about.

I am very grateful I’ve had the chance to develop myself within a company who have been nothing but supportive. I am now in a position where I can do the same for my team and look for every opportunity to promote development of the branch and individuals and that is the most rewarding part. I would recommend the industry to anyone looking for a challenge, with experience or not, as there are so many different types of roles there and something for everyone.
