Denny Bros, a global leader in multi-page labelling and printing solutions, has now set its sights firmly on developing its presence in European markets with the recent recruitment of experienced, multi-lingual, International Sales Executive, Anne Klermund.
Anne, who was born in Paris and studied in France until the age of 20, completed her studies in Taipei and worked for a further ten years in South East Asia before returning to Europe. She brings with her extensive commercial sales’ experience in two global companies combined with outstanding language skills in English, French, German and Chinese.
Before joining Denny Bros in October, Anne was involved in promotional and marketing activities for world, cosmetics’ leader l’Oréal in Asia. Her international career also led her to take up a post with Wella, (haircare products) in Singapore. After her work with foreign brands across Asian markets, Anne later went on to spend time in the USA, the UK and Austria before returning to her adopted roots in the UK.
With a proven track record in sales’ development Anne is extremely keen to help Denny Bros bring their European Sales division to the fore. She hopes to generate new business leads thanks to her language skills and to quickly become versed in the competitive nature of the French printing industries.
She said: “My new role represents a fantastic opportunity for me as I am not only able to combine my language skills and sales experience, but am also able to live in a familiar and beautiful part of the British countryside. I have every confidence that there is a lot of scope for a leading British print company, such as Denny Bros, to gain a significant market share in Europe. My aim is to bring in as many sales leads as possible across France as there are currently not many companies with the capabilities and products to rival Denny Bros’ Fix-a-Form®.”
She said that one of the attractions of the job was not just the challenge of working in a new industry, but of working in a supportive and forward-thinking environment, such as Denny Bros provides for its employees. She particularly likes the fact it is a large, local, family-run company but with a small, friendly mentality where local people are employed and stay for a long time because they enjoy working together.
Denny Bros is delighted with the latest addition to its successful team. Sales & Marketing Director, Stephen Jarrold said: “As we already have a strong customer base in the UK, we hope Anne will help us win more customers in France. The weak pound means the price of our multi-page labels is coming down for our export customers and so now is the perfect time to try to strengthen our market position in Europe.
“We are thrilled to have a multi-lingual Sales Executive on-board who can confidently support our sales objectives and show export customers why we have such a long-standing reputation for consistently delivering the best customer service, the highest quality product and for meeting the needs of our customers.”
