Joe Bennett joins Shebang as sales director
Former Brightstar Europe sales director Joe Bennett has joined Shebang Distribution as sales director.
Bennett said: ‘I’ve spent the last two months meeting all the key players in mobile distribution and after a lot of consideration decided to join Shebang because I felt it had the greatest potential for growth, the best skills sets, the right infrastructure in place and the right level of ambition.’
Bennett added that he felt Shebang had the right attitude to be successful in a changing market. ‘It’s a customer service based business that believes in treating its customers as partners. Shebang offers a complete solution and its cutting edge IT system allows it to really deliver on its promises. I’m really excited about 2010 with Shebang. I think it will be the company to watch.’
Bennett has worked in mobile distribution for 11 years starting his career at Unique Distribution before moving to Brightstar two years ago, where he helped develop it in the UK. Bennett left his job as Brightstar’s sales director for UK and Ireland in July 2009 on amicable terms and has been on gardening leave until now.
