"I am delighted to be joining Golden Bear," he commented. "The company has high profile and much loved brands in its portfolio. This will add a new challenge to my sales career and I look forward to becoming a valued member of the team."
Taylor added: "We would like to welcome Ian to the team. His national account experience will be invaluable to Golden Bear in the year going forward, which promises both to be successful and exciting with our leading brands being extended and many new properties to introduce."
