About James Pound
 

Salt and Bracken is owned and run by James Pound.  Having come from many years in the marine industry, working with retailers across the UK, he then went on to work in the Country Lifestyle business.  James has gained huge experience over the years with all levels of retail.



Background
 

During his time in the Marine industry, working for leading global brands including Musto and Dubarry, James spend four of those years working with Musto and Volvo, concentrating on the Volvo Ocean Race (known at THE round the world sailing event). Working with the local car dealer to the CEO of Volvo Trucks Global, promoting and selling the merchandise for the Volvo Ocean Race, gave James massive experience in sourcing, targets and supply chain dealings, as well as realising that people are people - no matter what "level" we all are - we all deserve the same level of service and respect.

After the Musto experience, James went on to set up James Pound Agencies - working in several different markets, this then led him into Dubarry where he spent nearly eight years in different roles, but building a great understanding for the Country Lifestyle business. 

Realising there was a market for niche brands and products, James set up Salt and Bracken - specialising in his career market sectors.  Now with a great brand portfolio and very strong retail network, which has been slowly built over the years, James has taken on an assistant in the office and a Sub Agent to manage run Ireland, Wales and the South West of England, who will continue to work with the same business ethos that James goes by - "less is more" in terms of distribution and to ensure we put our brands into the leading stores, rather than choosing second best just to get the sale.

Having worked on "both sides of the fence" in terms of being an agent and working for brands directly, James has a very good understanding for what brands require and has a fresh approach to being an Agent rather than the traditional old school thoughts.  Communication is vital both ways!
