All-Party Parliamentary Group for Professional Sales

About the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Professional Sales

The APPG for Professional Sales was set up to:

  • improve recognition by parliament and industry of the importance of sales and its impact on the UK economy
  • to promote and advance sales as a profession
  • to boost the success of British industry, especially in international trade
The cross-party group is supported by the Association of Professional Sales which provides its secretariat and research. The group was founded by APS fellow Stephen Kerr in 2018, when he was MP for Stirling. The APPG is now led by Mark Pawsey, the MP for Rugby, who also sits on the influential Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee - a select committee of the House of Commons.
