Kieran Harrod returns as Marketing Manager as Gareth Harris is promoted to Sales Director of CAME UK & Ireland.
In positive news for the CAME UK & Ireland family it’s nice to share a story of talent, growth, and loyalty. CAME is thrilled to announce the return of Kieran Harrod to the company after a 12-year journey that has come full circle. Stepping into the role of Marketing Manager, Kieran's return signifies not only the company's commitment to nurturing its own, but also its reputation as a workplace that warmly welcomes back its outstanding talent.
Kieran's journey with CAME began over a decade ago when he embarked on a career that would help shape his professional life. After his departure 12 years ago, Kieran ventured into new horizons, accumulating a wealth of experience and knowledge that has now come back to enrich the CAME family. His return symbolises the connections forged within the CAME family and reaffirms the company's belief in the potential of its employees.
Speaking about his return to the company after his hiatus Kieran commented:
“Coming back to CAME is like returning to a place I’ve always felt at home. The CAME culture and support from colleagues have always been second-to-none, and with the growth and expansion of the company, it’s exciting to both meet new faces and reunite with old friends. I’m delighted to be a part of the company again and determined to contribute to the future success of the business in any way I can.”
As Kieran takes the reins as the new Marketing Manager, another member of the CAME family is rising within the business. Gareth Harris, previously the Marketing Manager, has transitioned into the role of Sales Director. Gareth's journey within the company is a testament to the opportunities that await those who exhibit hard work, passion, and a hunger for growth. Having been a huge part of CAME's Sales & Marketing team for 11 years, Gareth's unwavering commitment and consistent high level of performance that have propelled him to this new role.
Speaking candidly about the appointments Manging Director James Bostock said:
“It feels like Christmas has come early for CAME UK in the Sales & Marketing Department. Being able to welcome back an amazing creative talent like Kieran to the team, alongside seeing such a dedicated team member like Gareth take on a brand-new role as Sales Director for the North UK & Ireland, a challenge that will put his management skills and marketing experience to their best use.
Both are equipped with an invaluable skill set that we at CAME are lucky to have working on our team. When a former employee like Kieran returns, it provides us with a warm reassurance that we create a great culture to work in. Seeing Gareth grow within the business and take the next step in his career also confirms that we are getting something right providing progression and opportunity to those who roll their sleeves up and get stuck in! Working alongside Mark Kurland will provide Gareth with a supportive and colourful transition into sales management where together they will make an excellent team to take the CAME BPT business forward.
Many companies say ‘It’s the people that make the business’; in this case, we have two solid examples, and we sincerely all wish them every success in the new challenges that lie ahead, alongside a genuine thank you for choosing CAME to invest their valued time and efforts in.”
Gareth commented: “It’s a fantastic opportunity for me professionally to develop within a company that has already provided me with so much in my career. I look forward to the challenge and promise to deliver the same high-level of performance that I always have, forging, and furthering the customer relationships I’ve built during my time with CAME. I’m excited for what the future holds for CAME UK & Ireland.”
Gareth's promotion to Sales Director not only demonstrates CAME's commitment to recognising and promoting from within but also showcases the company's trend for developing its employees' professional aspirations. Gareth's journey serves as an inspiring example for others, proving that a career with CAME is a pathway to personal and professional growth.
Gareth will be working alongside current Sales Director in the South, Mark Kurland, who himself has a huge wealth of experience within the business having recently celebrated a 25th anniversary with the company. On the development of the new partnership Mark commented:
“Having worked with Gareth for many years, I am delighted with his appointment as Sales Director for CAME UK & Ireland. He undoubtably possesses all the attributes to succeed in his new role; hard work, enthusiasm, industry knowledge, CAME knowledge, and above all a passion for driving service excellence for our customers. We can’t wait to get started”

Their stories underscore the importance of building a work environment that values both fresh perspectives and experienced insights, creating a harmonious blend that drives innovation and success. Both appointments exemplify CAME’s brand values in the day-to-day experiences within the UK business.
