Ball & Doggett expands display team

Ball & Doggett is expanding its Display & Visual team with three new hires, a move it says was made necessary following month-on-month growth post-merger.

Shaun Dowling makes the move from Shann DPM following 10 years of experience in signage, and is now Ball & Doggett area manager for Western Australia and South Australia.

David Walsh, who has previously worked for AGS and Orafol, will join as a NSW-based sales executive. With 12-years of prior experience, Ball & Doggett says Walsh will work alongside Joel Salmon and Paul Bartolo to service the local market.

Christel Pavlides is the final hire, and will be working as a sales executive in Queensland, having past experience with Avery Dennison.

Leigh Hooper, national manager Display & Visual, Ball & Doggett, says, “Our Display & Visual team has three experienced and talented additions in Dowling, Walsh and Pavlides.

“They complement our growing team of specialists, enhancing our reach and ability to provide a high level of service to our customers, whether this is via consultation, offering a diverse and quality range of media and substrates, or ensuring a well presented and prompt delivery service.

“We are investing in our Display & Visual unit in 2018 to maintain our commitment to creating a team of experts who offer our customers stand-out product knowledge and service.”

Following the merger, Ball & Doggett has an expanded portfolio in wide format media, which now includes Avery Dennison, Yupo and Catalina.

The company now also stocks media for the signage, fabrication, architectural and interior décor markets.

Ball & Doggett says it has a dedicated team of sales executives, customer service staff and a marketing officer that provide technical assistance, support and a tailored delivery model to the wide format market.

“Further to their extensive range of products and dedicated team, the Ball & Doggett Display & Visual division offers services such as same day delivery, technical support and converting facilities. This year, they will continue to focus further on rolling out their i_Consignment offering, a vendor managed inventory system that means customers have the right products, in the right place, at the right time.”

In August 2017, BJ Ball and KW Doggett Fine Paper joined forces to form Ball & Doggett, and says it is now Australia’s largest distributor of paper, packaging, plastics, inks, and wide format media.
