I am an enthusiastic, passionate, dynamic & experienced online marketing and e-commerce professional, having first ventured into the online space in 2003 whilst at Express Gifts (a home catalogue / shopping division of Findel plc).
Following on from Express Gifts, I moved onto Kitbag.com as Internet Marketing Manager for just under 3 years, then moving onto The Hut Group as Trading Manager for just over 1 year where I worked on The Hut's FMCG whitelabel entertainment websites such as Interport, Woolworths and Asda-Entertainment.co.uk, as well as own brand sites such as SportDiscount.com. In June 2011 I moved to my role at PJH Group (part of Globe Union) as Online Marketing Manager. As PJH's e-commerce setup developed my title changed to Online Trading Manager in May 2012.
