Herald strengthens its business development team

John Havercroft

British manufacturer and importer of high quality disposables, Herald is reinforcing its commitment to the company’s ongoing plans for future growth by bringing on board an experienced business development manager.

John Havercroft is joining the company with the aim of driving new business and forging new links across all sectors, while supporting the efforts of the current sales team.

Mr Havercroft’s appointment follows on from the appointment of David Martin to the role of national sales manager by Herald last year. The two will work together with a remit that reflects Herald’s progression, covering the sourcing and creation of new business opportunities, as well as promoting the growth of existing business accounts across all sectors.

Mr Havercroft said: “Having spent over 30 years working across various fields in the disposables and food packaging industries, I believe that I have the experience and the know-how to help Herald to move on to the next level in its plans for strategic growth. It’s a company that demonstrates a wholly positive approach, with considerable ambition, and I’m very much looking forward to being a part of its future and playing an instrumental part in all of its achievements and successes.”

Managing director of Herald, Yogesh Patel, added: “We’ve got lots of new lines to drive through and we are keen to reach out to both new and existing customers to make them aware of both the quality and the range of our products. I’m confident that John can help us to achieve our goals and that, with his support, we will be able to meet and, hopefully, surpass the targets that we’ve set for ourselves.”
