We are delighted to announce that we have engaged the services of Ian Ditcham to support with the development of new business opportunities within eXPD8, in line with our ambitious plans for the future.
Ian has spent the last 13 years at Tesco as a Category Director in charge of two lead departments, General Merchandise, and Electrical and Entertainment in the UK and Europe. Prior to that, he worked for BT in retail partnerships and at Dixons Retail as Marketing Director for its retail brands for 7 years. Ian also has extensive experience in food retail in fresh and grocery categories.
“I am delighted to be working with eXPD8 at this exciting time in retail where new ways of working and business models are being adopted to challenge existing business practices in order to deliver a better service to customers in a more efficient and effective way for retailers”.
Ian will be supporting eXPD8 to develop new business opportunities within the existing client base but also looking to the future to continue to grow the business and promote our unique service offering.
eXPD8 has recently become a fully-accredited and preferred partner to Tesco and has been a preferred partner to Asda and Sainsbury’s for over a year. These partnerships enable us to provide brands with a comprehensive service offering, combining strength of coverage and a quality service to maximise sales and visibility across all channels.
“It’s an exciting time within the business and I’m looking forward to having the retail buying, marketing and operations experience that Ian brings to the team. We are fully committed to driving service excellence for brands and retailers through first-class merchandising and exceptional store execution”.
Mark Thurgood, Co-Director of eXPD8
