Catering equipment component supplier Oxford Hardware has promoted George Bousfield to sales manager.
He has worked for the company for 2 years as a rep for the east, north and Scotland, and he will still retain his customers following this move.
US counterpart Kason Industries acquired Oxford Hardware towards the beginning of this year.
Bousfield commented: “I am very excited to be taking on the new challenge of management and look forward to leading a strong team to continued success at Oxford Hardware.
“Given the level of experience and expertise already present within the company, along with the additional support of Kason Industries, there is no limit to what we can achieve.”
One of his first jobs after leaving education was employment for 3 years at a catering component supplier so he had already gained knowledge of the products and market.
Director David Cleave praised: “George has done an excellent job there and increased sales significantly in his area. He has shown impressive maturity for his age and has thoroughly deserved his promotion.
“George will do a very good job leading the sales team into our next phase of development and we wish him all success.”
