Hallgarten strengthens marketing team with two new appointments
Hallgarten & Novum Wines has appointed two new heads to its central marketing department, increasing the size of the team to 14 people.
Appointed to the newly created role of Customer Marketing Manager, Tom Bennett joins the company from Global Brands where he held a Customer Marketing Controller role managing a team of seven people.
Bringing with him a wealth of experience and knowledge of the drinks sector, Bennett’s primary responsibility at Hallgarten Wines will be to provide a proactive and strategic customer-facing marketing function to complement the company’s sales teams nationwide. He will utilise data and insights to identify, support and help develop new business opportunities, and develop activities that drive growth with customers
The second new recruit to the marketing team, David Morrison, joins the team as Supplier Manager, looking after Hallgarten’s portfolio of suppliers from the Americas, Asia, Spain and Portugal. Morrison has taken the position following four years working at Oxfordshire based wine retailer Slurp Wine, where he held the role of Buyer & Marketing Manager, prior to which he spent three years working with Majestic Wine.
Hallgarten Head of Marketing, Colin Cameron, commented: “In Tom and David we have two individuals that will help Hallgarten & Novum Wines to significantly develop and strengthen its marketing offering and better reach our partners in the on- and off-trade. The newly created role of customer marketing manager is an important step forward for the business as we look to provide our partners with a strong, commercially focused function expected of a leading wine distributor such as Hallgarten.”
