Jamie Kirkbride has assumed a new role in the organisation as area sales manager, UK North, responsible for the sales of The Crosby Group portfolio, with brands including Crosby, Gunnebo Industries, Crosby Straightpoint and recently acquired leading mooring brand Crosby Feubo.
In this new role, Kirkbride will relocate to Aberdeen in Scotland, regarded as the heart of the Oil & Gas industry in the UK & North Sea. Jamie will have heavy focus on supporting our local distribution partners in the region. With Kirkbride located in Aberdeen, the customers in the northern region have never been closer to The Crosby Group, and they will now have local support 24/7.
“Jamie has a broad range of knowledge and more than 10 years of experience developing business in emerging markets, particularly in the oil and gas industry. We are very excited with him assuming this new role which will bring great value to our customers in the region”, says Justin Whelan, commercial director, The Crosby Group UK.
Previously, Kirkbride has spent several years working in Africa and more recently, the Middle East, before joining The Crosby Group as business development manager for Asia Pacific in 2019. He has a BSc in Business Management and Marketing from University of Northumbria at Newcastle.
