Item Products has appointed Charlene Hurst into a key sales role.
Charlene’s appointment follows 14 years of experience in frontline sales. In her previous role she bought and sold rare collector coins in a consumer facing environment. Her move to Item Products was inspired by her interest in moving from business to consumer to business to business, where she could enjoy the advantages of a workplace environment, and experience more variety in her day to day tasks.
Item Products’ managing director, Julian Cook, commented: ‘We are thrilled that Charlene has joined the business as a sales executive. We look forward to her winning new business and increasing our growth.
‘In her new role, Charlene will be identifying new customers and markets for our existing product range, as well as introducing new products to our existing customer base. She will be following up on new leads and managing our extensive contacts database. It will be an evolution of her previous job. By utilising her wealth of experience in frontline sales, it has allowed us to expand the position to be a proactive, rather than reactive, sales role.’
Item Products has recently secured an exclusive partnership with US company Box Latch. The Box Latch product enables corrugated packaging to be re-used using a simple closure system, as opposed to tape or staples.
