James Glasson

Sales Director

L’Eau Bleue D’Issey Pour Homme

What does your job title mean?

As Sales Director I manage the whole sales and marketing function of the business and have seen the company through an exciting growth period since I joined in 2003. We have now become one of the largest suppliers of fragrance and skincare in the UK. Our most exciting growth sector has been e-commerce and I have seen this grow to over a third of our business. The one thing we have to get right is to offer all our customers in the UK and Europe the best possible service whatever their means of selling, whether that be traditional high street retail, e-retail or wholesale.

What has been your path in to the industry?

I worked in the IT industry prior to joining the company, working in sales initially and progressing to pre-sales and project management.

What do you like best about your job?

Although I only deal with a few of our larger accounts now, the role is always challenging and demanding. Every day can be different and it’s this variety that continues to make the job interesting to me.

What is your hidden talent?

Since having my son my new specialist subjects are ‘In The Night Garden’ and ‘Peppa Pig’. I have little time for anything else.
