Meet The Team Behind Your Team – Josh Beal

July 29, 2021 | |

Sales Director

Josh is responsible for the sales strategy for the business across Europe, providing plans that allow the company to prosper, whilst ensuring customers receive the highest value for money.

Having obtained a range of specialist qualification, including a 1st class honours degree, Josh joined Kukri over 5 years ago, as a Sales Manager, before working his way up the business to his current role.

What is your background?

“I grew up in a sporting household, with my Dad being an ex-professional cricket player for Somerset CCC. My Grandad was also an excellent cricketer and fantastic footballer, which could quite easily have led to a professional career but never quite materialised.

On my mother’s side I was surrounded by rugby, netball, and tennis and upon joining senior school I captained the rugby, football and cricket teams, which is something I am extremely proud of. Between the ages of 10-17 I also played in the Somerset Country Cricket Club academy.”

What do you enjoy about working at Kukri?

“My passion for multiple sports means working at Kukri, who are a multi-sport brand, feels like a perfect fit.  Working with elite partners every day means that I am involved in an industry I love.

Every day is different, which allows for fresh and imaginative plans and strategies. I also enjoy being surrounded by highly skilled and hardworking people, who are all driving to maximise the success of the business, with customers at the forefront of everyone’s mind.”

What do you enjoy when away from work?

“Unsurprisingly – playing sport! I also enjoy travelling, dining out and music festivals, specifically Glastonbury, where I grew up.”
