Bennett joins Shebang in reshuffle


Shebang has appointed former Brightstar employee Joe Bennett as its new sales director.

Bennett, who previously held the UK and Ireland sales director role at Brightstar Europe for 18 months, joined Shebang last Monday and will be responsible for all of Shebang’s sales channels.

Bennett’s appointment marks his return to the industry after spending the past six months on gardening leave as part a contractual agreement with Brightstar, which ended mid-December.

He replaces former sales director, Julian Burton, who becomes Shebang’s new general manager and works alongside managing director Iain Humphrey.

Bennett said: “I am delighted to be joining Shebang. Because of my experience I had opportunities with a number of large distributors, and made a decision on which distributor really had the potential to grow and to win, and I saw all that in Shebang.

“For me, it’s by far the most advanced and most forward-thinking innovative distributor in the market place. 2010 will be the year that Shebang is recognised by the wider market for the exceptional business it is”
