Avenir makes two accessory appointments
Avenir has made two new appointments to its accessories team, a month after winning a role in the Orange accessories contract.
James Bennett and Mark Grice have joined the distributor from positions within the telecoms industry.
Bennett will take on the position of national account manager, having previously worked at Motorola and Carphone Warehouse where he covered area sales management.
Grice joins as accessories sales manager, after two years at Peter Jones’ company Phones International as head of accessory sales.
Avenir accessories sales director, Stuart Balaam said: ‘Having signed exclusivity deals on some great new brands we have continued to extend our successes in the mobile accessory market in a relatively short space of time. We are confident that Mark and James will help capitalise on these successes and help drive the business further forwards.’
Avenir was recently selected as one of the partners for Orange’s accessories distribution contract.
Avenir Telecom managing director, Andy Tow, said: ‘The fact that Orange Retail has chosen to retain us as a key distributor is a testament to our accessories offering which - at customer, retailer and dealer level - is based on clearly marketed features and benefits, financial confidence, and technical excellence.’
