Wow! Stuff Director Jon Birch is to part ways with the company after more than a decade, saying “the time feels rights for a change”.
His departure follows a period of significant growth at the company and a number of recent hires, including the appointment of Dawn Lavalette, the former head toy buyer at Tesco, as Commercial Director last November. Other new recruits include Ian Goodall from Logitech, Kelly Fletcher from Muller and, most recently, Sunny Walia from Tesco.
"It's all about the people. So when a hard-working, trusted colleague leaves the company it's a sad day,” says Wow! Stuff’s CEO Richard North. “Jon goes with our deep heartfelt thanks and best wishes.”
“It’s been an absolute pleasure, incredible journey and an honour to have worked with the Wow! Stuff team, but now feels the right time,” adds Jon. “I leave as the business is entering unprecedented growth in 2019 with a raft of new product innovations and brands set for launch in 2020.
“I am very confident that my small shareholding in the business will continue to grow further in value as the business keeps doing WOW! as only Wow! Stuff know how!”
