Territory sales manager Michael Stanyon is bringing new drive to 200-year-old Burgess Pet Care as he travels more than 1,000 miles a week to reach the company’s growing customer base.
The 46-year-old, who has a proven track record in the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) market – both in grocery and pet trade – will be developing the British company’s distribution routes and rate of sale among customers and implementing sales staff training.
Michael gained extensive experience working with independent pet retailers in the East of England and with some of the UK’s leading grocery brands before joining Burgess.
“I’m really excited about applying my FMCG skills to the pet food market and learning something new,” said Michael, who is based in Kettering with wife Tina and their four-year-old son, Seth.

“I love being out and about and meeting customers – and Burgess has a great reputation as a fantastic British company to work for,” he said.
Michael’s role as sales manager is the latest appointment following the recent recruitment of a new sales team and technical support staff at the company.
