Half Moon Bay boost sales team

Lucy Earing and Tracy Blight join Sales team as company prepares for a busy 2019

Leading licensed product and gift wholesaler Half Moon Bay is pleased to welcome two new members to the UK team. With the recent purchase of the Shruti brand and the launch of its new publishing imprint Ice House Books, Half Moon Bay adds to the sales team to expand and enhance its relationships with retailers across all three of its divisions.

Half Moon Bay has appointed Lucy Earing as National Account Manager to work across the Key Accounts team, and Tracy Blight who will join the Field Sales team working across the South West region.

Earing has relocated back to Bath after holding Account Manager positions at partywear and games company Talking Tables and Recruitment Agency I Love My Job Ltd in London. Earing brings a wide range of industry experience to the role and will be working closely with Half Moon Bay's key accounts. Having previously worked in Half Moon Bay's Sales Team for seven years, she is excited to be re-joining the company: 'It's changed a lot - grown in size, changed location and has lots of new faces, but still has the same lovely feel and I am very happy to be back!'

Blight will be working closely with Half Moon Bay's independent customer base across the South-West and South Wales regions. She joins the team with 15 years' experience in the Gifting Industry having worked in similar roles at Enesco and Heaven Sends. Blight's breadth of experience will help to grow business in the region and maximise customer account potential. She commented: 'I'm extremely excited to be joining Half Moon Bay and have already found the team to be very welcoming and lovely all round.'

Sally Thompson, Commercial Director at Half Moon Bay, commented: 'We are delighted to welcome Lucy and Tracy to Half Moon Bay. They bring a wealth of experience and I'm sure will fit in well with our team.'
