Real and Smooth announces regional management changes in North England

Real and Smooth Limited has announced two internal regional management changes in the North East and North West, effective as of 15 October.

Alison Forshaw, who has held the role of group local sales director and acting managing director for Real and Smooth in the North East for the past year, will return to Manchester where she will continue her sales director role and become MD of Real and Smooth Limited in the North West.

Michael McIntyre, who is currently MD in the North West and regional agency sales director, will in turn move to the North East and take on the role of managing director for Real and Smooth in the region.

Andy Carter, MD of Real and Smooth Limited Group, said: “During Alison’s time in the North East both stations have significantly grown in terms of revenue delivery and we have an outstanding team of people, well prepared for future growth. The time is now right for Alison to return to Manchester where she can be closer to home.

“For Michael, the move represents a new challenge, after 10 years working in Manchester. During his time with the group he has delivered outstanding results as the Agency Sales Director and more recently as MD of Real and Smooth Limited North West. Michael grew up on Teesside and knows the area well and this is a great opportunity for him to lead a standalone team to even greater levels of success.”

As part of the move, regional agency accounts in Scotland will now become the responsibility of Scotland local sales director Jimmy Docherty.
