Fellow of the Association of Professional Sales elected MP for Stirling

Stephen Kerr, Fellow of the APS, has been elected MP for Stirling

June 9 2017:  The Association of Professional Sales is proud to announce that Stephen Kerr, one of its Fellows, has been elected MP for Stirling at the General Election.

Andrew Hough, the chief executive of the APS, sent his congratulations to Mr Kerr, a career sales professional whose most recent role is as sales operations leader EMEA for Kimberley-Clark Professional.

“We are obviously delighted that someone who has been so proactive in supporting and being a Fellow of the APS has been successful in something they’ve chosen,” said Mr Hough.

“This puts an elected official into the political framework who has the best interests of the sales profession at heart.”

Mr Kerr campaigned with creating a positive environment for business and job creation as his number one priority.

He took the Stirling seat back from the Scottish National Party with a highly impressive swing of 13.9{06b6b360492ea91dcf5956ae2bf4e3e9ada2ae4dc734c18526569b7e6363d027}. The constituency was a distant 110th on the list of Conservative target seats. At the last election, the SNP majority was more than 11,700.

“Fantastic result for @stephenckerr in Stirling! So proud of him. He’ll make an excellent MP,” Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson tweeted after the result was announced at 4am.

It was a close run thing, and Mr Kerr has a majority of just 148 votes. The seat has been Conservative in the past, and was held by Michael Forsyth, now Lord Forsyth of Drumlean, the former Scottish Secretary.

The Association of Professional Sales is working towards royal chartered status. The journey has already started but we don’t want you to miss out.
