Drustan Durman – Technical Sales Administrator
Drustan joined PCE with several years of experience in sales and retail, most recently selling advertising for the local Express & Echo newspaper. His retail experience has ingrained a deep sense of customer service into him, ensuring it is the service more than the sale that matters to him most.
Growing up just within the western confines of the M25, Drustan returned to his family’s roots in Devon in 2004 after a brief spell in Chester.
A singer for a neo-Victorian/steam punk ensemble, Drustan also runs his own Iron Age re-enactment group, meaning his weekends are frequently busy doing all sorts of unusual and exciting things! Yet to be seen without a waistcoat and bafflingly fancy tie knot….
