It’s a direct success!
Local professionals Jonathan White and Lee Walker were this week promoted to become Directors of Sheffield based wholesaler Pricecheck Toiletries Limited after 10 and 13 years’ service respectively.
This week, newly appointed International Account Director Jonathan has been working tirelessly alongside colleagues at the 2015 NEC Autumn Trade Show. Jonathan, who has been instrumental in developing key accounts for Pricecheck in the UK and abroad, contributed to the company’s win of the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade earlier this year. His impressive sales figures as Pricecheck’s head account manager have been recognised and rewarded with this change in job title which reflects his hard work and seniority in the business.
It was also a commemorative week for Pricecheck’s long standing accountant Lee Walker. Lee, who started working for Pricecheck in March 2002 as the finance assistant, progressed to his former position as company accountant in May 2005. Since then, he has gone from strength to strength, juggling his own responsibilities managing the finance team, whilst continuously supporting the company directors and going above and beyond his job role for the benefit of every member of Pricecheck. Because of his commitment to the cause and unwavering loyalty to the company, Lee has now taken over as Pricecheck’s Finance Director and is set to join the Board of Directors later this month.
“Both Lee and Jonathan have made an unparalleled contribution to the growth of our business,” comments Debbie Harrison who is Joint Managing Director of Pricecheck alongside her brother Mark Lythe. “Their loyalty and dedication are invaluable to Pricecheck. They have well and truly earned this success.”
Mark goes on to add, “Lee and Jonathan have a deep understanding of our Company and the industry. With our ambitious growth plans for Pricecheck in place, and with a special birthday coming up for Lee, who turns 40 this week, it seemed only fitting to recognise their huge contribution!”
These changes have been executed to not only create a stronger, more structured management team, but to aid the company’s plans for expansion into larger premises at the end of this year. Ultimately, the company predicts that over the next 5 years, annual turnover will double from £40m to £80m as well as creating 70 more jobs for the local community.
