Wilsons welcomes new sales manager

Three months following its rebrand, Colchester-based wholesale distributor, Wilsons has welcomed Kevin Burton to the team as sales manager.

Burton brings with him a wealth of knowledge in working with independent retailers and will work closely with the growing sales team to help deliver an even better experience for its customers.

Gary Hopkins, director at Wilsons, said: “Wilsons continues to go from strength to strength and it is an exciting progression to bring in an experienced Sales Manager to support our customers and to lead the sales team here at Wilsons.  Kevin has the passion and ability that we really wanted in somebody for this role. We brought in a Marketing Manager to the team a year ago, and with our brand update 3 months ago, we look forward to working closely with our management team to grow the business further in the years ahead”

Kevin Burton added: “I have a great passion for retail and the high street in general and I am really looking forward to developing and managing the sales process at Wilsons. They have a fantastic reputation for giving a first-class service and having this chance to work with the sales team here to grow the business is a great opportunity for me”.

“I am really looking forward to getting to know all of Wilsons customers and being able to support them with what they do.  I am very much into my cycling and will be making sure my competitive edge is put to good use!”
