Changes to Advantage’s sales team
It’s been a month of change for the sales team at Advantage, with the nascent distributor gaining a director of sales and losing a national sales manager.
Earlier this month, Advantage hired former Carphone stalwart Richard Chambers as its new director of sales, while Frank Masson was appointed commercial director.
Chambers, who was commercial and operations director for
Carphone Warehouse Business Solutions, will be responsible for implementing all direct sales within the group.
Meanwhile, national sales manager David Foord left the business last Tuesday, following his resignation two months ago. Foord was a former colleague of Masson’s at European Telecom.
Masson described Foord as a Sir Alex Ferguson-esque figure. He said: David’s been a great servant to us.’ He added that the role would ‘not be advertised in the next few weeks’.
‘It’s most likely that we will replace that role. When people leave it gives us an opportunity to look at what we’ve got,’ he said.
