SJB Recycling welcomes Sam

SJB Recycling welcomes Sam Wright, our first Field Sales Executive for Yorganics, the 100% recycled, peat-free compost.

Sam has been tasked with developing new sales opportunities across the rest of the UK, and possibly overseas, within the retail sector, as well the horticultural and agricultural industry.

She said: “The fact the compost is made from recycled garden waste and is peat-free makes it a unique product and I am looking forward to introducing it to more potential customers and building the Yorganics brand.”

Sam has a strong sales background. She lived in France for ten years, where she worked for L’Oreal, Elf Petroleum and Ducros herbs and spices, before returning to the UK to do a Masters’ Degree in Business Administration. She has spent the last six years working as the Northern Area Manager for Bailey’s Horse Feeds, which is one of the leading horse food manufacturers in the UK.

Sam added: “I come from a farming community and grew up in the countryside, so being involved with products that contribute to the rural economy has always been important to me.

“Because it is peat-free, Yorganics is proving very popular with the agricultural and horticulture industry, but the fact it started life in peoples’ gardens makes it even more attractive because it is a perfect example of closed loop recycling.”

Matt Wilkinson, Yorganics’ Head of Sales & Marketing, said: “We are delighted to have someone of Sam’s calibre on board. She has excellent sales experience, coupled with an understanding of the importance of an environmentally friendly products like Yorganics.

“She will help us to deliver new sales opportunities across the UK as we work towards establishing Yorganics as a national brand.”
