Shebang lures Tesco's Julian Burton in sales director role
Shebang has drafted in Julian Burton from Tesco as its new sales director.
Burton was head of Tesco’s contract mobile business, and will now be looking after all of Shebang’s new sales channels – prepay, contract fulfilment and accessories. He joined last week (2 March).
The previous sales director, Glyn Horsfield, joined in May 2008 from T-Mobile and is now moving into an operations director role.
Burton follows the recruitment of former Dextra and Nokia accessories chief Neil Henderson in January, to manage Shebang’s relationships with manufacturers.
The distributor has also added Mark Rushton from 20:20 Mobile as a national account manager.
Shebang CEO Ian Humphrey could not be reached this week.
