On his time working at Carl Kammerling International, Ken commented, “It has been a privilege working for such a professional company, and I am now really looking forward to planning my future, including spending more time with my family and in my garden. I’m content in the knowledge that there is a great team to pick up where I will be leaving off, including Sarah Bevan, my successor, who is already working on exciting business opportunities for the future.”
Sarah Bevan has been working with Carl Kammerling International Industrial accounts for some time. Prior to joining the company, Sarah’s experience included working in account management within fire door hardware and architectural ironmongery industries.
Sarah said of her new post, “I am looking forward to taking up my new role, maintaining the high standards already delivered by Ken, and continuing to drive those customer relationships forward. I will be bringing my enthusiasm for both the C.K brand and its product ranges, as well as using that knowledge to help our customers increase sales and drive their businesses forward.”
