Palmer Harvey expands direct van sales business with ex PepsiCo man at helm

P amp;H Direct, the UK’s largest van sales operation, has announced that its new business targeting the foodservice sector will be headed up ex PepsiCo man Huw Davies

With 15 years’ experience of leading successful vans operations, Huw brings with him considerable expertise, most recently as UK field sales director at PepsiCo UK and Ireland.

Davies (pictured) started his van sales career with Golden Wonder, progressing to PepsiCo UK where he expanded the Walkers vans business model from purely focused on independent retail to driving growth into the foodservice sectors for the Walkers, Quaker and Tropicana brands.

Jim Newsome, managing director, P amp;H Direct Van Sales, commented: “We are about to enter a new phase within P amp;H Direct with the launch of our foodservice division. Huw’s track record speaks for itself and his knowledge, skills and behaviours provide us with powerful leadership to rapidly bring our new business to market. He is well known across the FMCG Industry and we are positive he is the right person to deliver the business transformation that lies ahead.”
