Bob Buckingham: Membership Sales Manager

Bob Buckingham WebI manage, support and develop Team Member activities designed to achieve membership sales targets at each centre and to ensure that, once recruited, our members’ experience is such that they will never want to leave!

I joined Avalon in October 2003 after a long career in a variety of leadership roles in the financial services industry. I am based at Avalon Headquarters in High Street, Street, Somerset.

I have 40+ years of experience in sales, customer service and team leadership/development.

Working for Avalon Leisure: Operating in an environment where customers and their wellbeing is at the heart of all that we do, is both refreshing and rewarding. Having the freedom to challenge established practices and introduce new ideas is stimulating and rewarding and ensures that no two days are the same.

 I have been married to my wife Gill for 33 years.  Our children are both heavily involved in sport.  My daughter works in Sydney, Australia for the Australian Olympic Committee- she marched in the opening ceremony in London 2012. My Son is the Sports Development and Academy Manager for a prominent local College.  I enjoy, all sports, particularly Football, Rugby Union and Tennis.
