Global wholesaler and distributor Pricecheck has made a trio of key appointments as it continues to grow and diversify.
Jane Whitham, a former director of Leeds-based PR agency Cream Consultancy, joins Pricecheck as Head of Marketing, as the international distributor aims for a turnover of £200m by 2025. Jane will oversee the company’s UK and international marketing as it continues to develop partnerships with brand leaders and enters new territories and channels.
Helen Coulthard, a Project Manager, joins from Bestway Wholesale having previously spent eight years in a variety of operational roles at wholesale giant Palmer and Harvey. Helen will lead a range of key projects at the Sheffield-based business which support whole-business growth and scalability.
Sales Support Manager Jessica Ellis brings several years’ sales management experience, leaving Virgin Media Business to take up her newly created role. Jessica will be a key manager in driving growth in a 30-strong direct sales force.
Pricecheck, an international distributor of fast-moving consumer goods, is trusted by the world’s biggest brands, offering more than 4,500 branded products to customers in the UK and worldwide.
The fast-growing business is based near Junction 31 of the M1 and exports to more than 80 countries. Turnover this year is in excess of £80m with exports accounting for more than £45m.
The company is planning significant further growth and is seeking to grow both its domestic and export business.
