Birchwood Price Tools is pleased to announce the arrival of Gary Hutchins as its new Sales Director.
Gary has joined BPT from Rexel, where he was Regional Director for electrical wholesalers WF Senate.
Gary brings with him 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.
Gary says: “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.”
Gary’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, Gary will drive a programme of heavy investment to further strengthen BPT’s nationwide salesforce.
Gary lives in Swindon with wife Emma and their three children. Outside of work, he enjoys fitness and is currently training for the 2018 London Marathon. He will be running for the Jack Dowding Foundation, raising money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund.
