Kestrel Building Products builds its sales team

  • 27 Feb 2024

Kestrel has announced the latest addition to its business development team – James Bennett. He joined Kestrel at the end of last year to work with customers across the North East of England.

Having more than a decade’s experience in the building products sector, Lincolnshire-based James is already proving to be a valuable addition to the business development team.

Jonathan Boland, Kestrel sales director, comments: “James had made a great start, he’s showing real enthusiasm and is bringing a fresh ideas to the role. Most importantly, he’s completely focused on helping and providing solutions for customers.”


In his new role, James will be working with customers across a wide area, from Lincolnshire up to Newcastle. Having spent some time at the Scunthorpe headquarters, learning about the products and getting to know his new team, James explained why he chose to join Kestrel.

James comments: “I’m joining Kestrel at an exciting time for the brand. There are some big developments in the pipeline, including the recently announced expansion of the portfolio, which are all designed to support our customers. It’s a really positive team, with a very pro-active attitude.”

Father-of-one James is very much a team-player, enjoying sports such as football as well as gym sessions. To fill his, not-so, spare time, he is also a retained firefighter, a role James has held for 10 years and which, he explains, has added extra purpose to his life.

“It’s all about helping people and it’s great feeling to know I can make a difference to someone’s life. That person may never know who I am, but in their hour of need, I can make a massive difference, and that’s priceless.”
