Boost for Zebra’s sales team
Based in Southport, Caroline will be looking after Cavallo, Uvex and Equipe and Amerigo accessories in the north while Karen Lewis, who is based in Leighton Buzzard, will look after Bucas, Veredus, Equipe accessories, Konigs, PK and Fleck in the south.
Both are experienced horsewomen; Karen combines dressage and showjumping with a spot of showing while Caroline has owned and produced showing horses and currently rides out a traditional gypsy cob.
Karen attended Plumpton College and has been a master saddler for 14 years. ‘While I’ve had some customer experience being a master saddler, I’m looking forward to the one to one contact with retailers this new role will provide.’
Caroline has extensive experience in the equine sector having spent time in the States with Israeli dressage rider and trainer Oded Shimoni, the Blue Hors stable in Denmark as well as in racing stable management. ‘I’m really looking forward to getting stuck in to my new role and getting to know the brands in more detail. It’s a great new challenge for me.’
‘We’re thrilled to welcome Karen and Caroline to Zebra,’ said Simon Middleton, managing director at Zebra Products. ‘Both have some great experience which will complement the existing team and it’s a great start to the year.
‘Our retailers are such an important part of Zebra’s success and it’s essential we foster strong relationships with them. The new team is looking really strong and we’re all looking forward to a fantastic 2016.’
