ESA expands sales and marketing team

ESA Sales has expanded its team with the appointment of Caroline Holford as account director.

The company was founded in 2017 by Chris Hoyle with the vision of providing a bespoke service assisting brands with entry into UK retail channels.

With over 30 years of senior sales experience, Chris said he ‘saw an opportunity to implement a completely fresh methodology which ensures his business model is appropriate and relevant in today’s market’. This formula has seen the business grow ‘at an exceptional pace’, resulting in the decision to recruit Caroline.

Working alongside Chris, Caroline has spent over 15 years in the housewares industry in both product development and trade marketing roles.

Chris commented: “I’m delighted that Caroline has joined such an exciting time, as we continue to rapidly expand our business. Working with JIT [Just In Time] logistics solutions, low MOQs [Minimum Order Quantity] and opportunities for direct despatch, I feel that we can offer a great alternative to the traditional distributor model. With our combined experience in sales and marketing, we aim to deliver on our ethos of ‘Better Together’ for our retail and brand partners.”

The brands represented by ESA Sales are TATAY of Barcelona, Zak Designs EU, Platters Slate UK and ICO UK, with new names soon to be announced.
