Two new sales coordinators have joined the Kidicraft team to cover growth and ensure a smooth run up to Christmas for the company.​

Emma Lund and Damian Meer

Emma Lund and Damian Meer will join Kidicraft as sales coordinators, bringing a wealth of experience with them. The new roles will bolster the sales team during this critical period.

Emma will be the first point of call for customers based in the South West, South East and The Midlands and support the sales agents in her area. Meanwhile, Damian will be the first point of contact for customers based in The North of England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Ireland and will also support the area’s sales team.

Katy Greenwood continues her development within the company, moving into a marketing support role to assist marketing manager, Annaliese Mason, with exciting new product launches which are to be announced soon.

Kidicraft is also pleased to announce that Sarah Haslam has taken on a new role as general manager. Sarah has worked for the company for several years and is an invaluable member of the team. In her new role, she will oversee the daily operations of the company and provide direct management to the rest of the Kidicraft team.

Paul Evans continues to manage the warehouse, ensuring accurate and timely product distribution.

Roy Greenwood, director of Kidicraft, said: “I am delighted to welcome both Damian and Emma to the team. I’m certain that the company will benefit from the skills and experience they will bring. Kidicraft is continuing to expand with lots of new products launching soon, so they are joining us at a very exciting time. Kidicraft has invested heavily to ensure that we meet product demand and availability, as we strive to continue to provide an exceptional level of customer service to our customers.”

Kidicraft recently announced new offices and warehouse close to the M65, which are 10 times the size of the company’s former premises.

As part of its future-proofing strategy, the company also has plans to bring some of its production in-house from next summer, and has an agreement in place for a distribution centre and salesperson in the Netherlands, that it hopes to develop soon.
