British furniture designer and manufacturer, Gallery direct has recently announced the appointment of James Hudson as sales director. James takes on the position alongside his existing role as business development director for furniture.

On his new title, James commented: “I’m thrilled to be given the position of sales director, but delighted that I can also retain my role putting together our furniture collections which I love! Furniture has been a key part of my life for so long, it’s great that I can still utilise my design skills and knowledge. The combination of the two jobs will keep me busy (and the title is rather long - sales and business development director), but I’m always up for a challenge, and with my enthusiasm, experience and work ethic, I’m confident that I can balance the two roles and deliver the results required for both.”

 This certainly seems to be the case so far. The company’s new furniture collections were extremely well received at the January Furniture Show, and James’ sales team exceeded their sales target for January, providing a strong start to 2017 for James and the whole team.
