SIRANE has appointed Karl Heggarty as global sales manager.
The appointment comes as the company bids farewell to sales director Jeremy Haydn-Davies, who has retired after 18 years with the company.
Karl joined Sirane seven years ago, as sales executive, before becoming sales manager and then subsequently senior sales manager.
In recent years he has been responsible for our sales in the seafood sector, as well as for growing our business in North America.
Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “Karl has gained significant experience at Sirane, and has worked across multiple sectors, and in many parts of the world, and was the obvious choice to replace Jeremy.
“We have ambitious plans to continue to grow Sirane on a global basis, and Karl’s experience and knowledge will be vital for the future.
“While replacing Jeremy’s knowledge and experience is virtually impossible, Karl is the person to continue to take Sirane forwards, especially as the company grows into new areas.”
Karl said: “Sirane’s a great company to work for, there’s always so much going on, and there’s a great team of people, not just in sales but across the business. Nothing ever stands still at Sirane, we’re always looking to move things on, and I believe we have some great products, with some amazing developments on the way, and the future looks good.”
