Avenir restructuring sees Balaam depart
Stuart Balaam, Avenir’s accessories sales director, has left Avenir as part of a restructuring which saw his role made redundant.
The accessories division will now be overseen by John Pett, Avenir’s UK sales director. Balaam (pictured) joined Avenir in 2007. He recently launched Reading-based Xccessory, an accessories brand development business.
Avenir MD Andy Tow said the restructuring was aimed at driving ‘significant growth’ in the accessories market.
He said: ‘In order to achieve significant growth in the accessories market this year we have reorganised our organisation and confirm this has led to the position of accessories sales director being made redundant and accordingly Stuart Balaam has left the company.
‘The accessories sales team will now report to John Pett, UK sales director and this reorganisation will deliver many exciting new opportunities to be announced in the coming months.’
