Reeve Calendars has recently appointed a highly experienced senior sales professional to continue its business growth with trade distributors.

Elliot Van Sertima has joined Reeve in the position of National Sales Manager to develop relationships with distributors, leading a team in promotional calendars in the Business to Business market.

Elliot brings a great deal of highly relevant industry experience, including 7 years working for Yellow Pages and Zoopla, in the field of advertising promotion. Originally from an engineering background, Elliot is also well placed to understand the technicalities of printing and producing calendars.

Mark Shipley, Operations Director at Reeve Calendars says: “Elliot joins our capable team and will be a great asset in developing relationships with trade customers. His proven capability will be invaluable in building sales and relationships with partners. This combined with his confidence to increase our offering, ensuring high quality products and exemplary customer service is perfectly aligned with Reeve Calendars’ vision for the future.”

Elliot is based in Essex, but manages the sales portfolio for the whole of the UK. With partners based across the country, and as far afield as Northern Ireland, The Channel Islands and the Outer Hebrides, promotional calendars will be well represented as a successful form of advertising.

Talking about his appointment, Elliot said “I am looking forward to meeting distributors for Reeve Calendars, and bringing my experience of customer loyalty and relationship building to the business. With my interest and passion for excellence, I feel this translates well to the high-quality calendars which Reeve produce, whereby a customers’ brand is communicated through this visual medium.”

With over 80 titles in the calendar range, varying from pictorial wall calendars to commercial desk designs, all budgets and tastes are catered for, offering distributors a variety of calendar options for their customers. Elliot is most looking forward to promoting Reeve’s range of award-winning interactive calendars. The 360interactive calendar received a silver award for ‘Most Innovative Product’ at the Promotional Product Awards and was recently demonstrated at Branding World at The Ricoh Arena in September, continuing to be one of the most popular designs in the range.

Elliot joins the business at the optimum time of year, with sales for 2020 calendars continuing a pace. Samples for the new season will launch in January 2020, with the release of 2021 titles available to distributors keen to get ahead of the game in their calendar sales.
