PROTECTING, PROMOTING AND REPRESENTING THE UK GUN TRADE SINCE 1891
Tewkesbury, May 15, 2019 – The Gun Trade Association announces the appointment of Ben Tolhurst as our new Marketing and Communications Officer. Ben will be responsible for communicating with media outlets, attending trade shows, providing marketing advice for members and developing the Association’s digital marketing channels, as well as spearheading the new Airgun Sports Trust campaign.
A recent graduate of the University of Worcester, Ben comes to the organisation with a master’s degree in International Sports Management and experience marketing several professional sports teams and educational institutions in the United States, where he himself studied for his BSc in Exercise Science and English.
“I hope that with the new Airgun Sports Trust campaign, I can really make my mark on the UK gun trade by promoting best practice of safe airgun use and widening the airgun family,” says Ben. “I am completely new to the world of shooting, which I think is a good thing in terms of perspective. I did however get an introduction to clay pigeon shooting at the fantastic Northern Shooting Show this past weekend and it’s safe to say it will definitely be something I’ll be doing again”.
