The Pen Warehouse and Snap Products have continued their expansion with the appointment of two new field sales managers for Scotland, Northern England and the South-West of England.
The appointments form part of the companies’ strategic drive to recruit from outside the industry, with a focus to strengthen their commitment to customer relationships in the regions and widen their business development footprint.
Hannah Bonell is the new field sales manager for Northern England and Scotland. Based in South Yorkshire, Ms Bonell holds a BA (Honours) degree in Textile Buying, Management and Retailing and brings significant purchasing and account management experience acquired in challenging retail environments. Her initial focus will be to develop a commercial understanding of her customers’ needs whilst developing an insight to explore opportunities using new technology and innovation.
She said: “I am looking forward to meeting my customers, listening to their needs and building strong, profitable relationships as we move forward.”
Hannah Whitman is the new field sales manager for the South-West of England. Ms Whitman has enjoyed a successful international sales career across the retail, food and beverage and automotive industries. In her most recent role as regional sales manager, she was responsible for driving sales growth and business development in a tough retail sector, managing retailers across the South-West.
Ms Whitman said: “I am excited to meet the real people behind the accounts in the South-West region and look forward to cultivating new relationships to help and support them grow their businesses.”
Operations director, Helen Dyl, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Hannah Bonnell and Hannah Whitman to our field sales organisation. Their appointments represent the next phase of our dynamic expansion, providing both companies with the professional experience and expertise we’ve sought to upgrade our regional service standards for our customers. We look forward to further strengthening and building collaborative relationships with our distributors.”
