Chelsom strengthen global sales team with appointment of Business Development Manager for The Americas30th March 2023
Further to the recruitment of a European Business Development Manager at the end of last year, Chelsom continues to expand its overseas sales team with the appointment of Adrian Baldry as Business Development Manager for the Americas following continued success in the USA.
The new appointment accompanies an increase in sales across the global hotel, cruise and leisure sectors in addition to a series of high-profile project wins in the USA including Four Seasons Beverly Wilshire, Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach, Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, Hyatt Regency Conroe and Four Seasons Minneapolis.
With a professional background centred around the marine and USA markets specifically, Adrian has spent the last 7 years working as a sales representative for IMO wallcoverings where he has built a strong rapport with leading marine operators including Disney, Carnival Cruise Lines, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines & Holland America. Adrian’s career to date has seen him spend a considerable amount of time in America which has provided him with valuable exposure to the market and armed him with the necessary experience to succeed in this competitive environment.
Based in the UK, Adrian will be working closely with Sales Director, Julia Brogan, to create effective sales strategies that build on all the hard work the team have been putting into raising the company’s profile in the States. As well as managing and supporting Chelsom’s ever-growing network of USA agents, Adrian will regularly travel to America to meet with leading interior designers, architects and hotel operators.
Sales Director, Julia Brogan says: “We are thrilled to announce the news of Adrian’s appointment and have no doubt that he will prove a valuable member of our global sales force. Significant investment in our international sales team, corporate branding and overseas exhibitions have helped raise our international profile and undoubtedly contributed to our success across the pond. Adrian has a wealth of experience within the industry and is the right person to lead Chelsom in the American marketplace and help continue to elevate Chelsom’s growing reputation. He will no doubt tackle the many exciting opportunities ahead, especially the global launch of our new lighting collections, Edition 28, set to launch in May 2023 at Clerkenwell Design Week.”
