Introducing Bluestone: Gemma Grainger

Gemma is our regional account manager for East Midlands North. Since joining Bluestone Leasing in 2022, Gemma has established herself as an approachable, personable and hard-working member of the sales team. If she is not out of the office meeting with a potential new client or partner to help them understand the benefits of finance, you will find Gemma on the phone providing advice and support to one of her existing partners or customers.

“I immerse myself into my partners and customers businesses, understanding their needs and bug-bears, and recommending the best solutions to help them achieve their long-term aspirations. I recently had my first client meeting which I really enjoyed – I’m looking forward to speaking to and supporting more of my clients.”

The early days

Gemma grew up in Tamworth with many fond memories, particularly of dancing ballet, which she has done since she was three. Her favourite subject as school was English (particularly Shakespeare), made all the more enjoyable by her amazing English teacher. 

I really wanted to be a dancer (ballet, contemporary, modern and Jazz). I grew up dancing but ballet was always what I was best at. I have won some awards and danced in the winter gardens in Blackpool as well as in London.

The world of work   

Gemma began her career working in recruitment for clients wanting to lease pubs. Since then, she has spent the last few years in the role of internal sales manager at Grenke Leasing, where she was focused on new partner acquisition and delivering excellent customer service to clients, including helping them to generate more business through finance.

Right from my first interview with the CEO, I got a sense that the people at Bluestone were friendly and approachable. I knew from then that it would be a good company to work for. Everyone is extremely supportive, open, and approachable. From the MD to the admin team everyone is treated equally and it’s just a fab place to work.”

Gemma really likes that no day is the same, working with people and the diversity of her role. 

Gemma wants to be remembered for…

‘Making people smile and always dancing around to cheesy songs.’

What does the future hold for Gemma? 

After already completing a solo parachute jump, Gemma has ambitions to undertake a freefall skydive, as well as continuing to spend her time with her family and dog who all keep her on her toes. 

Gemma is a huge lover of food, so cooking and going out for a nice meal is something she enjoys doing (when she’s not doing to watch the kids play football, rugby or boxing…)

When it comes to her work with Bluestone, Gemma is exited to build new relationships while continuing to support them in achieving their long-term aspirations.
