Emporia Life adds former 20:20 man Richard Parry
Richard Parry, the former 20:20 Dextra sales director, has taken the role of country manager for Emporia Life.
Emporia Life is a manufacturer specialising in handsets for the elderly, disabled, partially sighted and hard of hearing.
Parry (pictured) left 20:20 in August 2008 amid a restructuring of the distributor.
He had also been a senior commercial chief at Carphone Warehouse’s former distribution and trading division, Mobile Phone Express, and worked for Unique Distribution.
Emporia is understood to be looking to tap into the growing market of users who want simple, easy to use devices. Emporia is part of Austrian group, Matobmobile, which also makes the Doro brand of mobile phones, known for big buttons.
