Nield Group, the independent wholesale distributor of toiletries, household, health and beauty products, has appointed Bill Tempany to the newly created post of sales director.
Tempany had been with rival M&S Toiletries for 25 years before his move, starting out as a sales representative and ending up as sales director. Before M&S, Tempany worked at SmithKline Beecham and household aerosol supplier ER Howard.
He will head the newly formed sales force at Nield Group. The company previously used five agency territory managers but because of recent growth - the group’s sales are currently growing at 12.8% - it has recruited 10 of its own managers to cover the UK and Ireland.
