New North West Sales Rep

Share This Post

We're delighted to welcome on board Conor Shields, the new regional manager for the North West. With a renewed focus on this region, Conor is dedicated to delivering growth and is looking forward to connecting with customers in this area.

Conor joins the sales team with a breadth of experience, having previously been a senior key account manager for UKVB – one of the UK’s leading vape wholesale suppliers. He’s got an understanding for the industrial sector, having worked for Brammer – a leading distributor of industrial maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) products – then later Buck & Hickman who were the UK’s first major tools distributor.

Belfast born-and-raised, Conor is now living near Liverpool and loves cooking, golf and travelling. To get to know Conor a bit better, we asked him 10 quick-fire questions:


Cats or Dogs?

Dogs - definitely.


Apple or Android?

Has to be Apple.


Football or Rugby?



Tea or Coffee?

Coffee for sure.


Bath or Shower?



What's your favourite type of music?

I'd say probably dance music.


What would be your death row meal?

Wow that's a tough one... probably a big cheeseburger.


What's your favourite type of eggs?



What's your opinion on pineapple on pizza?

I'd say it's fine. I wouldn't have it with ham though, I prefer it with pepperoni.


Finally, would you rather fight 100 duck-sized humans or 1 human-sized duck?

Haha I think I'd have to go for 100 duck-sized humans because I'm scared of birds so one massive duck would be my worst nightmare!

So if you’re a bird-loving, rugby fan who likes to drink tea in the bath, you and Conor might not get along so well… but we think he’s great and are pleased to have him covering the North West.

He joins the 6 existing sales managers, who have a wealth of experience in the industry. For a full rundown of the various sales areas, please refer to the map below.
