Abbeygate is delighted to announce that Viv Blumfield will be joining the company as Sales & Marketing Director with effect from 1st March 2016. Her key responsibilities will include leading the sales, marketing and customer service functions to develop excellent relationships with both existing customers and new prospects to drive sales growth.

Claire Coventry, Managing Director of Abbeygate, said: “We are so pleased that Viv is joining the company full time in a sales and marketing capacity to assist with our expansion plans. Viv brings with her many years’ experience of the promotional merchandise industry, having run her own distributor business for 25 years, which she sold to Dowlis in 2004, and then Pro-Motion Consulting Ltd since 2011. We are sure that many of our customers will already know Viv and be delighted that she’ll be managing their account.”

Viv commented: “A thank you to all my customers … Having enjoyed almost 5 years working as a consultant in the promotional merchandise industry, I am delighted to announce that I will be joining Abbeygate full time with effect from 1st March 2016 as Sales & Marketing Director. It has been an amazing five years working with distributors and suppliers in the industry to help drive better results for their business and I would like to thank everyone that has supported me since I launched Pro-Motion Consulting.

Having worked with Abbeygate on a consultancy basis, I am really looking forward to taking their product range to market. They have so much to offer and I am not sure if distributors really know how Abbeygate’s products and services can benefit both their own business and end-user clients. They are a great team and I am delighted to be joining them at this exciting time.”
