Tuesday 9th December 2020.
Ben and Rob are in the Christmas spirit in our final FlameStop TV episode for 2020. With the holiday break fast approaching they talk about our trading period during this time. FlameStop TV will return in 2021 with plenty of fresh content, new products and Rob’s terrible puns. If you want to catch up on any of this year’s episodes you’ve missed, simply visit our website and click on the FlameStop TV tab.
Ben is the General Manager of FlameStop Australia. He first started his career with the company over 17 years ago in internal sales. Through hard work and determination Ben quickly progressed up the ranks through various management positions. Ben has traditionally specialised on portable fire extinguishers, however over the years and with our product diversification he has now become quite the generalist on all things FlameStop..
As the General Manager, Ben currently manages the sales & operations of 100 + team members spread throughout our 10 Distribution Centres located in Australia and New Zealand. He enjoys working hands-on with our various teams and never shies away from a challenge. When Ben is not working he enjoys spending time with his family on the Gold Coast, BBQing trying to master the perfect brisket (low and slow) and watching his beloved Brisbane Broncos football team.
Rob is the National Manager for the Fire Detection products portfolio at FlameStop. He has been in the fire industry for over 17 years, with 10 of those years being with FlameStop. Rob has played an instrumental role in the rapid growth and expansion of the company over the past decade, and continues to make improvements to take things to the next level.
Rob has been responsible for driving product strategy and direction and realises the importance of service and loyalty in the world of the fire industry. Each day he strives to attain an outstanding experience for all FlameStop customers, as well as being responsible for the vision, growth and development of his product portfolio.
Rob’s hobbies include participating in triathlons, playing squash and also spending time with family (in particular helping his two young daughters with their netball skills). Rob follows both football codes supporting the GWS Giants and Penrith Panthers.
After making the first series of FlameStop TV both Ben and Rob have agreed there is definitely no career for them in acting, and hoping to better their efforts for the next series of shows.
FlameStop Australia is pleased to be launching FlameStop TV, a new initiative showcasing the latest products and services we have to offer. Each show will run for 2 to 3 minutes and allows you to view the show no matter where you are.
This exciting new platform is presented by Ben Parkhill and Rob Glover who have a combined amount of 35 years’ experience in the fire industry. Both have a passion for all things fire and enjoy building long lasting relationships with customers.
FlameStop TV can be shown at your company toolbox meetings. Each show focuses on product applications and highlights key features you may or might not know about. The show also covers topics of interest and services offered at our national distribution warehouses.
A new show will be released every fortnight via email, our website and FlameStop Facebook page. We encourage your feedback and any suggestions you have are welcome.
