Trio of senior female appointments for Pricecheck

Pricecheck, the Sheffield-headquartered wholesaler and distributor, has made a trio of key senior appointments as it looks to boost turnover to £200 million.

Jane Whitham, a former director of Leeds-based PR agency Cream Consultancy, joins as Head of Marketing.

She will oversee the company’s UK and international marketing as it continues to develop partnerships with brand leaders and enters new territories and channels.

Project Manager Helen Coulthard joins from Bestway Wholesale having previously spent eight years in a variety of operational roles at wholesale giant Palmer and Harvey.

Sales Support Manager Jessica Ellis brings several years’ sales management experience, leaving Virgin Media Business to take up her newly created role.

Pricehceck is based near Junction 31 of the M1 and exports to more than 80 countries. Turnover this year is in excess of £80 million with exports accounting for more than £45 million.

The company is planning significant further growth and is seeking to grow both its domestic and export business.

Joint MD Debbie Harrison said: “We are investing in the very best people to help drive Pricecheck forward. We are a very people-focused business and have ambitious plans to continue our growth journey.

“Coupled with our continual investment in technology and a bespoke, tailored service for customers and brand owners alike, we are committed to ensuring our partners and customers get the absolute best service.

“These are transformational times for Pricecheck and ensuring we’ve got the best people is absolutely critical to our continued success.”
