P&MM has appointed Simon Lee as sales director, sales promotion division, as the company continues to focus on meeting current trends in the market with the delivery of creative and innovative sales promotion solutions.
Lee will lead the team, directing sales across the four brands the division encompasses, namely P&MM sales promotion, Protravel, Fotorama and Filmology. He will be responsible for maintaining the strong position of these brands in the market, as well as implementing a growth strategy in new areas. He will report to David Pearson, managing director, sales promotion division.
Lee brings with him a wealth of experience in sales-focused roles, having most recently been sales and marketing director at Mood Media in Australia, an agency offering a range of experiential solutions for retailers and the hospitality industry. Prior to that he was national sales training and programme manager at Tyco in Australia, where he was responsible for the national field and telesales teams and succeeded in increasing revenues dramatically and setting up a small business sales team. He returns to P&MM having been a business development director from 1999 to 2002.
Speaking about his new role, Lee said: “The UK sales promotion industry is characterised by vibrancy and creativity and it is great to be back. P&MM’s offering has expanded hugely since I left, with even more to offer brands and agencies, and I am looking forward to using my sales and training expertise to cement our place at the forefront of the market.”
Pearson said: “Simon’s experience in related industries in different countries, and his proven ability to manage both commercial and internal challenges and opportunities, will be extremely beneficial and give us new insight as we further consolidate our position as a leading provider of solutions-driven sales promotions.”
