Gary Hutchins has joined Birchwood Tools as Sales Director.
He joins BPT from Rexel, where he was Regional Director for electrical wholesalers WF Senate.
Hutchins brings over 20 years sales experience within a wholesaler and distribution background, having previously worked with many national corporate blue chip customers from the facilities management and end user sectors. In joining BPT, he intends to bring this knowledge to the supplier side in order to further strengthen BPT brands and products as ‘must stock’ items.
He said: “What excites me are the strong brands and the quality of the products BPT offer and the opportunity to take these brands into new distribution channels.”
The new Sales Director’s priorities are to understand customers’ needs, to ensure BPT is proposing solutions which will help them to grow their businesses, and to understand the potential opportunities for brands in new sectors. In addition, Hutchins will drive a programme of heavy investment to further strengthen BPT’s nationwide salesforce.
