The firm's former sales director returns to lead a restructured sales team.
Publish date:

Golden Bear's former sales director, Julie Taylor, has returned to the company.

Taylor will take up her old post as head of the sales team.

She left the company at the end of 2012 to pursue new challenges at Worlds Apart, but after much consideration, has re-joined the Telford-based team.

Taylor said: "It has been a difficult decision to leave Worlds Apart after such a short time, I was made to feel incredibly welcome and it was a great pleasure to work alongside such a dedicated team.

"Unfortunately the South West location made balancing travel and home life difficult, which was a major factor in my decision to return to the team at Golden Bear.

"While I wish Worlds Apart all the very best for 2013, I am delighted to be working once again with my former colleagues."

Taylor will now work alongside new marketing director Kate O'Leary who joined the company in January.

The new sales team structure will also see Senior National Accounts Manager, Paul Mabbs, leave the company for new ventures.

Barry Hughes, General Manager of Golden Bear, said: "We are all delighted to have Julie back on board and welcome her wholeheartedly back to the team.

"With Julie Taylor and Kate O'Leary working together we have an incredibly strong slaes and marketing structure.

"We are however sorry to see Paul Mabbs leave the team and we wish him well in his future career."
