We’re thrilled to announce that our former Head of Sales and Marketing, Ben Lee has been promoted to Director of Sales and Marketing.
Former Driffield School pupil, Ben began his career in the factory after A Levels and worked his way up through the sales team to Head of Sales and Marketing and a position on the Senior Management Team in April 2019.
Of his most recent promotion, our MD, Nigel Upson said: “Since Ben took on the senior sales role, he has been instrumental in driving the sales strategy and the change agenda and has used his depth of knowledge of the business to best effect.
“Through Ben’s hard work, willingness to modernise the business and his ‘work with’ ethos he has delivered a coherent plan and, as a willing student of management theory, he has also brought a fresh people-centred approach to the team.
“His promotion is well-deserved, and the board looks forward to seeing him lead the sales team to even greater success.”
Ben is delighted with the promotion: “I have a great team around me and am very grateful for the opportunities that I have been given. I’m looking forward to developing the team and growing the business.”
31 year old Ben grew up in Middleton on the Wolds, where his father is still the gamekeeper. He lives with his wife and daughter in Driffield.
