Jack Ford, a vastly experienced, technically-minded sales representative has joined Lusty & Blundell as their new Tauranga branch Internal Account Manager.

Jack joins L&B, New Zealand’s largest distributor of high quality marine and recreational products and systems from a similar role for a global leader of jet ski, ATV and snowmobile brands.

“With his years of experience, strong people focus and technically minded sales skills, Jack is going to be a great addition to our Tauranga team,” says L&B sales director Cameron Maher. “His solid experience in managing relationships, wide breadth of product knowledge and multi-country international experience will be a huge asset for both us and our clients.”

Cameron says a key part of Jack’s role will be to build strong relationships with both new and existing business-to-business accounts “especially in the central North Island where the establishing of L&B’s Tauranga branch has so served our key customers so well.”

“Jack coming on board is a further development of this initiative. It will increase our service levels throughout the region and further help us grow new business opportunities.”

A keen fisher and outdoorsman, Jack and his young family (and his trusty trailer boat) have recently returned to Tauranga (his home town) from the Far North.

Jack and the rest of the L&B Tauranga team are at 26 Marsh Street, Tauranga from 7.30am to 5pm Monday to Friday and the phone number is (07) 927 9270.
