Simon Hanley is new sales manager at PML

London, UK: Simon Hanley, picured above, has taken a new role as sales manager at Perishable Movements Limited.

The company created the position following expansion and acquisition of a new site in Lympne, Kent.

Hanley, who joined PML five years ago, has been promoted from his previous role as business development manager.

He will manage a team of four and report to sales director Nick Finbow. He is charged with a remit of growing the Spalding and Kent sites and developing PML’s perishable goods market to the Middle and Far East.

Hanley said: “I was attracted to the progressive working environment here. It’s a flat organisation so there’s no room for protracted discussions and excessive bureaucracy, decisions are made quickly to enable everyone to move forward with their roles.

“If you present a compelling case for a particular activity, the senior management team is incredibly supportive and receptive to new initiatives. I’m looking forward to the fresh challenges this position represents and relish the prospect of being part of PML’s continued success and established recognition as an industry leader, success that is befitting of the clear commitment to forward thinking and continuous re-investment in the business.”
