Paul Lamond Games grows sales team with double appointment

This autumn is bringing significant growth for the games and puzzles specialist as it introduces two new members to its sales team.

Paul Lamond has named Mark Jones as its new national accounts manager and Jacqui Butler as its area sales manager for London.

Both bring extensive retail, sales and games and puzzles knowledge to the team. Jones boasts over 20 years’ industry experience in the sector and will now focus on developing and growing Paul Lamond’s national accounts business.

Meanwhile, Butler has enjoyed an extensive career with the likes of Harrods and Selfridges thanks to her background in selling giftware and high end kitchen ware. Sh has also worked with card and gift shops following her time with Enesco.

Richard Wells, Paul Lamond’s managing director, said that this is an exciting time for the company.

“We are delighted that Mark and Jacqui have joined our sales team and they both bring a host of skills and experience,” he said. “Mark and Jacqui’s roles will reinforce and add depth to our already strong sales force. Their appointments come at the perfect time as we head into Q4, the festive season for games and puzzles, and then onto the early trade shows in 2019.”
