Beaphar UK strengthens team with two new veterinary nurses


Beaphar UK has added two new members to their team, with Georgina Shrimpton (above left) taking on the role of Technical Support Executive and Sarah Hewitt (above right) joining as Customer Services Assistant.

Both Georgina and Sarah are registered veterinary nurses, and bring with them a plethora of knowledge to their new roles at Beaphar.

Georgina spent seven years in practice as an RVN before going on to work for Merial Animal Health for two years as a Technical Advisor. During this time, and throughout her new role at Beaphar, Georgina has maintained her RVN title so that she can be sure she is up-to-date with current veterinary practices and medicines. As part of the Beaphar Team, Georgina will be responsible for providing technical support to the marketing, sales and customer services teams, as well as compiling training documents and leading training sessions with Beaphar customers.

Sarah has worked in practice as an RVN for over five years, having previously also obtained a degree in Applied Biology from Kingston University. Before choosing to pursue a career in veterinary nursing, she also worked in customer services for a global company, making her a great asset to Beaphar’s Customer Service Team.

Dr Sue Huggett, Business Manager, Beaphar UK, said: “As registered veterinary nurses, Georgina and Sarah bring not only a wealth of technical knowledge but also real-world experience to the Beaphar Team.

“Georgina’s skillset and past-experience offering technical advice to vets, SQPs and pet owners makes her an excellent choice for the new role of Technical Support Executive, particularly with the development of our AMTRA-accredited Training, which has seen a huge surge in signups recently.

“As a member of the Customer Services Team, Sarah will be at the forefront of Beaphar, handling enquiries from pet-owners and our trade customers. Her experience as a veterinary nurse and in customer service makes her an ideal addition to the Beaphar Team.”

Dr Huggett concluded: “We are thrilled to welcome Georgina and Sarah to Beaphar, and wish them every success in their new roles.”
