New Appointments Strengthen Expansion & Commitment

Promotional writing instrument specialist, The Pen Warehouse, and Snap Products, a leader in digitally printed merchandise, 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.

Both companies are proud to announce the appointment of Hannah Bonell as the new Field Sales Manager for Northern England and Scotland.  Based in South Yorkshire, Hannah 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.  Hannah adds: “I am looking forward to meeting my customers, listening to their needs and building strong, profitable relationships as we move forward.”

The Pen Warehouse and Snap Products are equally delighted to confirm the appointment of Hannah Whitman as the new Field Sales Manager for the South-West of England.  Hannah 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.  Hannah, based in the Cotswolds, comments: “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.”

The two new professional Field Sales Managers have joined Nicole Phillips, recently appointed as Field Sales Manager for the Midlands, to form a dynamic, customer-focused and energetic national sales team, led by Matthew Dyl, Head of Sales.  Harnessing the latest field-sales software technology will form a cornerstone of the new field sales programme to identify and respond quickly to new opportunities.

Both Hannah Bonell and Hannah Whitman will undergo an intensive and structured one month training programme at the companies’ Head Offices in Aldershot, Hampshire, learning about the companies’ comprehensive products and solutions as well as the latest industry developments and trends.  They will then accompany Matthew Dyl on visits to make their introductions to their customers.

Operations Director, Helen Dyl, comments: “We are delighted to welcome Hannah Bonell 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.”
