“This appointment will further enhance our trade sales team and will help in increasing the support that we offer to our growing portfolio of regional and national agent partners.
“Our new product launches, service developments and innovations are producing increased demand from new and existing customers, and we will continue to resource accordingly in order to drive our brand forward.
“We’re very fortunate that we were able to secure someone of the Carla’s calibre as she will fit in perfectly with the ethos of our business and will help take If Only to the next level.
“Carla is the newest addition to our field sales team following our recent re-structure, appointing Gemma Pinder-Davidson and Dominic Carrick as head of sales north and south and well as the promotion of Jorge Quibell to BDM south west England, following Neil Sealy’s departure.”
McCreadie added: “Carla will help us to capitalise on the tremendous opportunity to grow sales in partnership with our agents in the south east, and having worked together for the last six years so she knows exactly the high standards that I expect and how she can to deliver on these.”
