Chelsom bolsters its Sales team with the appointment of Karen Brennan as Sales Consultant for the South of England as the company consolidates its position as a leading designer, manufacturer and supplier of decorative lighting to the international hospitality and marine markets.
Cementing what has been a particularly successful eighteen months for the company, Chelsom has recently appointed a highly experienced new team member to further enhance the continued expansion of the Chelsom brand. The new appointment accompanies a series of high profile international project wins and a significant increase in sales across the global hotel, marine and leisure sectors.
With a professional background in the interior design market spanning more than 20 years in both the UK and UAE, Karen Brennan has spent the last 8 years specialising in the contract hospitality marketplace. Her career to date has provided her with a thorough understanding of the decorative contract market and she brings with her a wealth of experience from her previous roles with companies including Decca Furniture, JAB Furnishings and Skopos Design. During her time in these positions Karen has developed a large number of key relationships within the hospitality industry and has completed projects across a wide client base including Langham Hotels, Monaco Yacht Club, IHG Group, Accor, Hilton Worldwide and St. Regis Hotels to name a few.
Brennan says “During my career in the contract market and within the hospitality environment specifically, I have understood that providing first class client service is the corner stone of any business relationship. I want to add that first class service to Chelsom’s enviable reputation for superior design and quality. Having had a sneak preview of the 2016 collection I am even more excited about joining the UK’s leading hospitality lighting specialist.”
Sales Director, Philip Macaulay says: “We have been very diligent in our search for the right person to join the Sales team. Karen understands the Chelsom ethos and all we are looking to achieve and is well respected within the industry. We are delighted to welcome Karen to the team, she’s certainly coming on board at a very exciting time ready to tackle the opportunities ahead in 2016 with the launch of our new lighting collections, Edition 25, around the corner in May.”
