Harrison & Clough, a distributor of fasteners and fixings, has appointed two new Area Sales Managers. Matthew Aubrey will look after the West Midlands and Wales, while Adam Shaw will oversee the East Midlands and East Anglia.

Having built over a decade of experience in the fastener and fixing industry, Aubrey began his career with a family-run engineering merchant where he initially worked in picking, packing and delivering. His dedication and skill quickly saw him transition into sales as an Area Sales Manager; working directly to end-users. Testament to his wealth of expertise, Aubrey has been given a Platinum Sales Award by Troy UK. 

With a background in engineering, Shaw’s curiosity led to him to the fixing and fastener industry, and after gaining experience in the packaging department of a large fastener and fixing company, Shaw realised his passion for the sector.

He went on to gain hands on experience in the warehouse after undergoing high-level order picker training. He later became responsible for quality control, and then moved into merchandising, which spurred him on to take his current position as Area Manager at Harrison & Clough. 

Mark Dorrington, Business Development Director at Harrison & Clough, commented on the dual appointment: “Both Matthew and Adam are a great fit for our team and will no doubt bolster our relationships with customers in the regions and help us to take our customer service to the next level. They both have commendable track records and take on a proactive and customer-focused mindset.

“I am sure that their contributions will significantly benefit our clients whilst supporting our growth objectives.”
