Polyvine appoints new national sales manager

Published:  15 August, 2016

Polyvine has appointed David Clayton as national sales manager covering its specialist stockist, general retail and professional user markets throughout the UK. His remit is to build sales for the company’s decorating and wood care ranges with existing and new accounts and to create a national sales team for the company.

Ian Wells, managing director of Polyvine, said: “UK and international sales are growing very well and we have a number of new products to bring to the professional and retail markets. With the right support, I am confident that we can make considerable inroads and potentially change a lot of the received thinking in the wood care, varnish and specialist paints categories.

Appointing Mr Clayton is a first step in building a really effective and committed sales team. We are also increasing our marketing spend to support the sales drive and we look forward to some great results. The products are best in class and getting the message across to stockists and end users is very much the priority.”
