Copestick Murray announces key promotions and appointments

Published:  05 August, 2015

Copestick Murray has appointed two new members to its sales team after an extensive recruitment campaign earlier in the year.

 David Percival joins as national account manager with a focus on the national on-trade sector. Ian Dunne has been recruited as a sales support executive, a role he will take over from Shane McNally, who has been promoted to help manage and develop the company's thriving business in Ireland.

In another change within the organisation, Copestick Murray has also announced that current commercial director David Peek will leave at the end of the year to start his own business.

Stuart Bond, formerly UK off-trade sales director, has been promoted to the commercial director role. Bond has previously worked at Constellation Europe, Gaymers Cider and Brown-Forman.

The company plans to expand its sales team further, and will shortly start the recruitment process for two new senior national account managers to cover the national off trade.

Robin Copestick, managing director, said: "Whilst I am sorry that David will be leaving us, I am absolutely delighted with the company's progress. We are over 60% ahead of where we were last year, over 50% ahead of budget and the growth is coming in all areas of the business.

"i heart goes from strength the strength, Mionetto is working well and we have had a successful launsh of the new Lisa McGuigan brand. I see no reason why this growth will not continue."
