Gem appoints category manager to lead office products push
Distributor Gem has appointed a new category manager to help boost its move into office products.
Andy Hirst joins from running his own retail and online business, having previously spent 18 years at Office Depot. He will report into Colin Learmouth, Gem's head of category for office products.
Gem, which distributes hardware, software and gaming, last week announced a push into office products, including mobile phones. Office products will be launched by the end of September 2013.
Colin Learmouth said: 'I’m delighted that Andy has chosen to join us at this exciting stage of our development. His experience will undoubtedly help us to better shape our product and service proposition for customers ahead of our launch.'
