Domino is pleased to announce the recent promotion of two key members of its globe-spanning sales team. In his new position as Group Sales Director, Ben Rock will draw on his long and varied experience within Domino to bring fresh energy to the sales approach around the world, while Will Edwards has been promoted to European Sales Director, a role which will see him lead the company’s European business, including direct channels and distributors.
With a BSc (Hons) in Chemistry from Sheffield Polytechnic, Ben Rock first joined Domino in 1991 as a Development Chemist, before eventually moving into a UK sales role covering the East Midlands region. He honed his leadership skills while heading up the UK Sales Team in 1999 until he relocated to Japan in 2002, where he served as Country Manager for four years.
Since 2006, Ben has returned to the UK to take on management responsibilities for the Global Key Accounts and Distributor Management teams, until landing the role of Group Sales Director in November 2014. He comments, “I look forward to leading Domino’s ongoing sales effort, capitalising on our sales personnel’s superb capabilities, excellent product portfolio and global consistency.”
Before joining Domino in 2000, Will Edwards was a mechanical engineering graduate forging a career in the white goods industry. Specialising originally in the design of domestic refrigeration equipment, he was subsequently promoted as part of a leadership programme to Sales Manager, before moving into the logistics industry as an Account Manager.
Will’s initial role at Domino was as a Territory Sales Manager for the Product Identification Strategic Business Unit, working primarily on new business accounts. He has spent the last 5 years leading the Domino UK business as General Manager. He says, “Europe continues to be an important region for Domino and I am delighted to be taking on this new leadership challenge.”
