Adande has announced changes to its UK sales team with a focus on increased ‘on the ground' sales resource.
Ben Aird has been promoted from regional sales manager to national account manager, and will work alongside new recruits Graham Jones, who takes over as regional sales manager London and the South East, and who ran his own company in Australia called Mr Chop; and James Kershaw, who will pair with Aird as national account manager and has worked previously with Trak Hupfer, CDS Wilman and Counterline.
Karl Hodgson, UK sales director for Adande, commented: "It is with great excitement and pride that I am able to formally announce the promotion of our own Ben Aird. It is important to give our best service to the customer and reward those who achieve in the marketplace, and it gives me great pleasure to demonstrate the culture of promoting from within at the company.
"James will be looking after some of our national accounts and pioneering new ones in the foodservice and retail sector.
"Both candidates have demonstrated a dynamic approach in what they want from their career and how to achieve their goals. I am confident that both of these guys have what it takes to take Adande to the next level of sales in 2016 and beyond."
