Shane Cuthbert has joined Parsley in Time as business development manager. He is a well-known face in the commercial tableware market, having worked for Utopia for several years, during which he covered London and the South of England.
In his new role he has been tasked with helping Parsley in Time to develop business through both new and existing accounts.
Cuthbert commented: “Parsley in Time is a great business. There’s significant potential for growing sales and my aim is to help the company achieve this by consolidating the list of very loyal existing customers while bringing in new accounts. Given the great reputation of the business I believe this is achievable with some good old fashioned hard work.”
His 14-year career in the industry has given him extensive experience of the hospitality sector. Before Utopia, he worked with brands including Rollover Over Hot Dogs and The Fabulous Bakin’ Boys.
He added: “One of the attractions of working with Parsley in Time is the company’s flexible approach. The aim is to satisfy any tableware requirement a customer may have. There are some very experienced guys here and if Parsley in Time doesn’t already stock it, then the team will know where to find it.”
Marketing manager Rob Blunderfield commented: “We worked with Shane when he was at Utopia and we’re delighted that he’s joined the team.
“His expertise, ability and track record mark him out as a first class tableware professional with great insight of bar and restaurant trends.”
Outside of work Cuthbert is keen on sport, especially golf, cricket and motorsport.
