Exciting news! We’ve recruited a whole new Temple Knight Sales team, which will bring 70 years of experience to the business.
Paul Taaffe heads up the Sales team with Steven Connelly and Baz Abdul as Business Development Managers. They join Simon Chapman, Managing Director, and Adam Payne, Service Director. We’re looking forward to seeing how they help to transform Temple Knight over the coming months.
Simon, our Managing Director, said:
“The new sales team is critical to the next stage of growth for Temple Knight. It was important that we found the right team for the business, and a strong leader for the role of Head of Sales Operations & Business Development. Paul’s experience has made him the perfect candidate to lead the sales team with Steven and Baz.”
Paul Taaffe has worked in the printer industry for over 25 years. Starting off in Managed Print Services, he spent his early years with American giant IKON office solutions, before moving to a senior role with manufacturer Konica Minolta. Paul then went on to work at another manufacturer OCE as Regional Sales Director for London and the South East.
“I’m pleased to say I find myself with the ever progressive and dynamic organisation Temple Knight. I’m looking forward to making a difference with positive change and working with Simon and Richard. We all have the same ideas of where we want the company to be. This enhances my role hugely and gives me the confidence that we can succeed in our new and exciting journey.”
Steven Connelly is the new Business Development Manager. He’s been working in the industry for over 30 years, with the majority of his time spent at NCS where he managed national accounts. He worked his way up from a Trainee sales position to Sales Manager, before joining Paul’s team at Temple Knight.
“I’m looking forward to expanding our customer user base, and continuing to help grow the Temple Knight business. I want to also continue to establish excellent relationships with all our customers, and grow trust in doing business with them”
Baz Abdul is the third new recruit in the team at Temple Knight. He joins the team as Business Development Manager. Baz comes from a background working in the industry for the past 15 years, starting his career being trained at the Xerox Academy. He’s worked for both dealers and manufacturers.
“I’m really pleased to be part of the new phase of Temple Knight. Most importantly, I want to help our customers with Temple Knight’s innovative solutions, combined with the latest technology to help increase efficiencies.”
