IDS has expanded its marketing team with two new members – Paul Ricci as digital marketing coordinator and Megan Abbotts as marketing assistant.
John Bagshaw, managing director said: “We’re excited to be expanding the marketing team with the additions of Paul and Megan – particularly as this year IDS celebrates 20 years of business.
“It’s a great opportunity to look forward, invest in talent and find the best ways of supporting our 17-strong branches nationwide to deliver the best service to customers. Increasing our marketing output is just one of the ways we’re doing this.”
Ricci brings with him six years of marketing experience. He will be overseeing the 14 websites managed by IDS as well as handling the company’s digital functions, from e-commerce to e-mail campaigns.
He said: “I am looking forward to implementing the new and exciting programmes we have planned for the websites and communicating them across the business. I think it will be brilliant to play a small part in adding something that hopefully colleagues and customers can greatly benefit from.”
Having recently achieved a Level 4 NVQ in business administration, Abbotts will be responsible for supporting IDS branches on a daily basis with their marketing and POS requirements. She has previously worked in sales and marketing as well as events and publications.
