Guy Allen has joined Elliot Brown as head of national sales as the brand continues to grow beyond its start-up phase and into a period of rapid UK expansion.
Mr Allen brings 35 years of industry experience to the role. For the past eight years he has been UK distributor for French brand Pequignet.
Prior to that he owned his own watch and jewellery retailer and ran a distribution business in the United States.
He has also been sales and marketing director for both Avia and Burberry, and was the UK’s first distributor in the UK for Danish watch brand Skagen.
“Guy is a real watch enthusiast, whose natural passion for a well-made watch is infectious,” says Elliot Brown co-founder Ian Elliot.
“He brings a wealth of industry knowledge at an exciting period when Elliot Brown is enjoying rapid growth and reaching a milestone with the launch of Tyneham, our first automatic watch,” he adds.
