Phones 4u’s Ben Carter to head new department
Phones 4u has created a new department that will combine prepay and contract buying across the company.
It will be headed up by former Nokia sales operations director Ben Carter.
In his new role as director of purchasing, Carter will be responsible for purchasing and proposition across all categories at Phones 4u, and will report to trading director Scott Hooton.
In April, Mobile magazine reported Phones 4u was poised to bolster its commercial team with Carter’s appointment. It comes after several mid-ranking and senior exits at the retailer, including Simon Boyd, Damian Gowland and James Lumb.
