Project First is pleased to announce the appointment of Richard Spurgeon as its Sales & Marketing Director. Richard joins Project First from the Hoffman Group, Europe’s leading distributor of engineering tooling, where he was UK Sales & Managing Director for the past two years. Prior to that he worked for a number of blue chip organisations including R S Components and Beiersdorf AG, in the UK, Ireland, and Australia.
Richard will be responsible for coordinating all sales activity across the Project First Group, assessing group wide sales processes in order to realise all potential opportunities within the company. He will also have the day-to-day responsibility for running GH England and Primo Products, reviewing and developing strategy. Above all, Richard says he wants to “provide our customers with the highest levels of customer service. We are in the fantastic position of being one of the very few companies within the commercial refrigeration sector equipped to offer our customers a complete end-to-end product and service solution.”
Mark Stratford, Managing Director of Project First, says of the appointment: “With the continued growth of the company, having a dedicated Sales & Marketing Director makes sound economic sense. I am sure you will join me in wishing Richard success in his new position and career at Project First.”
