North East-based IG Group has appointed a new, experienced sales manager.
Paul Millward has joined the light equipment dealer, bringing with him 18 years of experience, having previously worked for ER Clifford and for the last 2 years for commercial catering supplier, Zodiac.
Liverpool-born, Millward has taken up the role of sales manager for IG Brands, working with the company’s distribution network to support existing customers and help build new relationships.
His years of experience mean he is well known within the trade and will now be using his expertise in helping the company – which has bases in Sunderland, Peterlee and London – implement its growth strategy.
“I absolutely love the great aims and ambitions of the company and I know that I am joining a really dynamic team,” he said.
“I have spent the last 18 years working in hospitality and it’s great to be part of an organisation which has made such a fantastic impact and is at the top of its game.
“I am very excited to be part of it going forward.”
Stephen Hoey, CEO of IG Group, said: “Someone with Paul’s experience can only be a huge asset to us as we continue to grow.
“We are very happy he decided to join us and he will play an integral role as we break into new markets.”
