Methven has strengthened its sales and marketing function with the appointment of three area sales managers.

The three new appointments aim to increase Methven’s support to customers across the UK, the company says. Aaron Hughes will oversee Methven’s sales operations in central and eastern regions, Rachael Gray will look after the South East, and Jordan Mcleod will be taking care of Scotland.

Mr Hughes joins the team from national retailer Sainsbury’s, while Ms Gray has more than 20 years of experience in the manufacturing and construction industry in New Zealand and Australia. Mr Mcleod arrives at the company from McDonald Engineers.

The new recruits will be tasked with developing new sales routes for Methven in their specific regions, while further strengthening relationships with its existing customer base.

Martin Walker, chief executive officer at Methven UK, said: “With the recent launch of the company’s Aurajet showering technology as well as a host of other new products, the new appointments join Methven at a very important and exciting time.”
