KBB distributor PJH has announced that Eddie Rock, its regional sales manager for 21 years, passed away suddenly over Easter, aged 45.
Rock (pictured) began his career at PJH on the internal sales team, and quickly progressed to the role of internal key account manager.
He soon proved that his customer-centric style was perfect for face-to-face sales and so then joined the PJH external sales team, where he worked for more than 10 years.
PJH chief executive said: “We [PJH] are deeply shocked and saddened by the untimely death of Eddie Rock. The thoughts of everyone at PJH are with his family and friends and we extend our deepest sympathies to them.”
Head of sales (retail) Rick Adams added: “Eddie was simply a beautiful soul, a genuine human being who showed so much love towards his colleagues and customers. Everyone at PJH is heartbroken. He was a delight to work with, a model professional who always showed a positive attitude and gave everything to his role. He authentically cared about other people – no ego just simple love.
“We will miss him so much. He would have loved what’s coming along soon and I can imagine how he would have described it, ‘Absolutely awesome!’ God bless you Eddie, all of us at PJH will do you proud and never forget you.”
