Quinn’s role is to assure positive business development by meeting yearly goals on recognised revenue, operating profit, and operational efficiency, as well as cooperation with the service sales and marketing function and equipment business lines to support the growth of revenues from service plans and advanced services. She will also ensure the highest standards of customer care are provided throughout the CTS operation, including giving attention to customer feedback through a Net Promoter Score system.

“Health, safety and the environment continue to be at the centre of Atlas Copco’s service operations and, as well as ensuring that our own organisation adheres to all measures, we provide guidance to our customers on the latest health, safety and environmental matters when it comes to compressed air,” says Quinn.

On her priorities, Quinn continues: “One of my first priorities in the new role is to ensure that our team is there to support customers with their equipment uptime as the manufacturing industry returns to growth in the post-pandemic environment and invests more in capital equipment. A second, and more personal priority, is to help increase diversity in the field of compressor operations. I am a Diversity & Inclusion ambassador and promote our mission to attract the best talent and to have a good balance of role models in our organisation. I would like the industry to know that Atlas Copco believes in the power and potential of diverse teams, that we offer equal opportunities, that we invest in apprenticeship programmes and offer a strong framework for training and competence development of all of our employees.”

In 2018 Quinn relocated to the USA on a global assignment to deliver training to end-users in accordance with a defined training plan for the CTS business stream. This assignment involved engagement and interaction with all Atlas Copco Compressor Technique customer centres within the USA, Canada, and Mexico.
