He comments: “Whilst in the process of searching for a new career opportunity, I got a really positive feeling from Salamander. Although it isn’t a family-run business, it has a real close-knit feel, which appealed to me when choosing a new workplace.

“Salamander has gone from strength to strength in recent years, which made me want to be a part of the company’s positive-looking future. I am really excited to get under the skin of this new opportunity and contribute to Salamander’s growth.”

Adam Brand adds: “We are delighted to announce the arrival of Lee to Salamander. He has shown incredible promise in the past few weeks and we are looking forward to seeing what he can achieve in the months to come. We have no doubt that he will continue to help us increase sales and hit ambitious targets, and enjoy a long and fruitful career here at Salamander.”
