Ten sales companies will become one integrated team covering Sales, Marketing and Business Support areas such as finance, logistics, HR and communications. The proposed changes are subject to local consultation and may result in efficiencies and headcount reduction.

Chris Bowen, currently sales director for the UK, has been appointed country head UK and Ireland, and will continue to manage the commercial relations at a local level.
