Tony White has been promoted to the position of head of sales UK and will focus on the development of the company’s portfolio within the bricks and mortar retailers: specialists, grocers, value, high street, discount, warehouse and independents.

Stacy Hunt has been promoted to the position of head of digital sales and will focus on developing Worlds Apart’s distribution, assets and content across its digital partners within the UK and across Europe.

Vance added: “Tony joined us in 2013 and has made a significant impact on our UK business. He brings a wealth of experience to the new role and will focus on driving the development of our key ranges across all channels. Stacy first joined the team in 2011 and has experience from both sides of the business having worked as a buyer for Tesco, Argos and ELC. He has been instrumental in the development of our branded and retail own label business across all channels and will use his product and process expertise to ensure that our key ranges are fully optimised for all our digital partners. We’re investing in our internal resources across the business and these changes will position us at the forefront of development across all channels within the UK and will provide a sound commercial platform to maximise the opportunities within the European markets.”
