Bristan announce two new recruits

Published:  09 June, 2015

Bristan Group’s domestic specification division has announced the recent appointment of two business development managers.

Sonia Serne and Sophie Taylor will help business development across Bristan’s burgeoning specification division, working with specifiers, contractors and housebuilders across the country.

Ms Serne will head up the company’s South Central region. She has 15 years of experience in business management, most recently occupying senior business roles at domestic appliance manufacturers Indesit and Whirlpool.

Ms Taylor joins Bristan from luxury furniture brand Villiers Brothers, where she has occupied a sales role for almost seven years. She studied interior design to degree level, which the company says makes her suited to her new role heading up the East Anglia to Northampton region.

Craig Rendall, national sales manager for Bristan Group, said: “Having already welcomed three new members to the commercial team earlier this year, we are confident that the two new additions of such high calibre will aid us as we continue in our major expansion plans.”
