Chairman of the company John Sneyd said the company developed a two year expansion plan during the latter quarter of 2013 with the aim of making further investments into the business and Simon’s appointment is just the first of a number of key announcements to be made in the coming year.
Managing director Phil Judson said: “We are delighted to be in such a good business position and furthermore to have Simon joining our team. He has spent the last two years gaining new product sales experience in the pet food industry. In addition, his track record selling new products to a wide range of trade marketplaces, presents us with a perfect fit for our desire to look after our existing loyal and other potential customers.”
Simon added: “Opportunities to work for a family business with such integrity, values and principles are rare. Sneyd’s expansion plans are the most exciting I have seen for quite a while and I am delighted to have the chance to play a part in their implementation. The team at Sneyd’s is second-to-none and they have made me more welcome than any company I have ever worked for in the past.”
