PJH expands sales development team
Following a successful 2019 with strong sales growth and as part of its continuous growth strategy and efforts to be its customers' first choice, PJH is pleased to announce that it has strengthened its sales division by welcoming three new sales development managers to its nationwide team.
Paula Wilson joins PJH as sales development manager for the Northern & Scotland region, from one of PJH's trade customers, Express Plumbing Supplies, where she was showroom manager.
With over 30 years' experience in the bathroom and tile industry, Paula has a career spanning retail, merchant, architect, specifier and house building markets and held previous roles within Plumb Centre, Villeroy & Boch, Jewson & Grahams and the Bathroom Council. Inspired by PJH's Bathrooms to Love Collection and how it has evolved over the last few years, Paula is delighted to join PJH, commenting: "I'm looking forward to making a positive contribution to the company and working with everyone at PJH as well as helping the company become the number one go-to brand in the UK KBB sector."
Joining PJH's Southwest team is Darren Turner (pictured right). Based in Bristol, Darren's previous roles as showroom manager for Active Plumbing Supplies and regional manager for Porcelanosa, place him in good stead for his new position as sales development manager.
Speaking about joining PJH, Darren says: "I am excited about my new challenge and working for such an established company in our sector. I'm looking forward to helping build sales in my region, especially with such an enviable portfolio of brands, such as Bathrooms to Love and RefleXion Enclosures, as well as the wide mix of kitchen appliance brands now onboard with PJH."
The third new appointment is Charlotte Hall, who joins the company's Northern sales team (below right).
From Huddersfield, Charlotte brings with her a wealth of experience in the industry having worked previously for Hibberds Distribution as an area sales manager, and before that, at Frontline where she worked internally in customer service.
In her new role as sales development manager for the Northern regions, Charlotte will be responsible for growing and maintaining sales with both current and prospective retail and merchant customers.
Head of PJH Retail Sales, Rick Adams, says of the new recruits: "I'd like to welcome Paula, Darren and Charlotte to PJH, who join us during an exciting period of growth and company development. The PJH brand is one of the most established and recognisable of the KBB sector and with a loyal and growing customer base; Paula, Darren and Charlotte will be great assets to the company as we works towards our strategic goals of unrivalled customer support and being the first choice in retail distribution."
