The Board of Directors at Chelsom is delighted to announce the appointment of Julia Brogan as the company’s new Sales Director.
Julia has been part of the sales team at Chelsom for over two years in the role of Head of European Sales where she has significantly expanded the company’s sales and brand exposure throughout mainland Europe. Working with hotel owners, interior designers, architects, FF&E procurement companies and residential interior developers, Julia has grown the Chelsom business in Europe substantially, surpassing all 2021 sales targets in the region, despite the obstacles and restrictions faced due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Julia’s recent project wins in Europe include Radisson Red Oslo, Athenee Palace Hilton Bucharest, Voco The Hague, Paris Marriott Opera Ambassador Hotel and Mandarin Oriental Lucerne all of which have further put Chelsom on the global map as a leading UK exporter of high-quality decorative lighting for the worldwide hospitality, marine and residential interiors markets.
Julia’s promotion to Sales Director follows an in-depth executive search process across the industry which generated a high-calibre short list of candidates, all of whom came with worthy credentials and experience. Julia joins a senior leadership team of seven directors at Chelsom and will be responsible for global sales. Julia leads an extensive team of sales professionals based both in UK and overseas markets and will look after key accounts around the globe.
“I have absolutely loved my time at Chelsom so far and am thrilled to be taking on this exciting new opportunity,” says Julie. “Chelsom’s foundations are built on family business values, trusted relationships, high quality design and manufacturing as well as a huge passion for lighting, all of which makes me immensely proud to work here.
“As global markets awaken and recover in the wake of Covid-19, there has never been a more exciting time to be leading the sales efforts of this well-established business and I cannot wait to get started.”
Managing Director, Will Chelsom, adds, “As we celebrate our 75th Anniversary, there could not be a better suited person to lead our sales efforts around the world. I feel Julia has been part of our family for decades and she is only just getting started.
“I look forward to further growing our business with Julia at the helm of the sales team where I know her strategic input, natural leadership style and vast business development experience will deliver her and Chelsom great success.”
