Andrew Marjoram – sales director, Gü

Andrew has developed his career across an impressive range of FMCG businesses including Mars Confectionery, Pepsico and Hallmark Cards. He’s now sales director of the premium deserts brand Gü, and he shares some of his secrets of success with us…
Andrew’s top tips for building and managing a high-performing sales team are to ensure great communication of the leadership strategy and involve the team with decision-making to broaden their exposure. When hiring for his own team, he looks for those who strive to be the best they can, a can-do attitude with a results focus. Especially important is the awareness that winning as a team is more important than an individual win.
