Dreamworks Beds has appointed Nick Blackett as an area sales manager to join its sales team. Nick is responsible for business development in the north of England.
Nick has been in the furniture industry for over 30 years, and so brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the role. He joined an independent furniture store straight from school as a trainee, before going on to work for Conroy’s and Furniture Village. He then opened his own furniture store, which he ran for 10 years, before becoming an area sales manager for an Irish importer.
Nick comments: “I really enjoy working in the furniture industry, and loved the area sales manager role and knew it was a career path that I wanted to follow. But I wanted to work for a British manufacturer, who was more reliable, with better quality and service.
"I applied for the position at Dreamworks Beds, as it was just what I was looking for. I am delighted to have got the job! I’m confident that with my background, dealing with both B2B and B2C clients, I can add value to the company, providing a great service to existing customers as well as sourcing new business.”
