Share This Post

Gordian has made a commitment to Scotland in 2023, as we continue to focus on delivering an exceptional service for our valued existing customers, as well as forming new strategic partnerships. So, we’re thrilled to introduce our new Regional Sales Manager, David Bolland, who will be dedicated to delivering growth in Scotland. 

David is a proud Scot and was raised and lives in Kilmarnock, Scotland. 

He joins the sales team, with an impressive 25 years experience in industrial distribution and a strong background in MRO (maintenance, repair and operations). 

David found Gordian Strapping offered a fantastic opportunity and was inspired by the people and the focus of the business. He is keen to work for a leading supplier of strapping, wrapping and hooding machinery and building specific technical skills and knowledge of the products and services Gordian offers.  

David is a caring family man and has been with his wife for 35 years (since 1988), and they have been married since 1999. He has two grown-up daughters, aged 30 and 40, who he is extremely proud of.  

As well as spending time with his family, David has a keen interest in golf. He is also a Director of his local golf course and has been part of the team co-running and operating the course since 2015. He also has an impressive handicap of 10! 

 To get to know David a bit better, we asked him some quick fire questions:

What's your opinion on pineapple on pizza?

We are excited for the future, as David’s expertise and dedication will be instrumental in growing the business throughout the region. Welcome to the team David!
