Eddingtons will improve coverage and service levels to customers with the addition of two new experienced account managers to their dedicated sales team. Derek Carter joins Eddingtons from Dexam to look after independent customers in Scotland and the North East of England, while Craig Antcliffe joins as Key Account Manager, reporting to Theresa Jackson, Eddingtons National Accounts Manager, and with primary responsibility for developing department stores and online retailers.
Eddingtons will also benefit from the addition of Sarah Bennett, to the role of Packaging Coordinator. Sarah brings with her a wealth of experience gained within the food packaging industry to help develop Eddingtons own-brand packaging and progress custom-pack projects.
STOP PRESS: Eddingtons are also in the process of securing a talented Account Manager to head their newly created Catering division.
At the beginning of May Theresa Jackson, Eddingtons National Account Manager, battled it out to secure a place at the World Aquathlon (750m swim, 5k run) champs, which will be held in London on the 11th September.
At the end of May, she also qualified for next year’s European triathlon champs which will be held in Kitzbuhl in Austria over the sprint distance. However, she is hoping to override this with qualification at Olympic distance at the end of September (it is not allowed to compete in both distances).
At the European Triathlon champs, held in Turkey in June, Theresa raced the Olympic distance event to achieve 10th in her age group.
So a triple result for the Eddingtons tri-athlete – well done Theresa!!
