Card Connection appoints new franchise manager for the South East
Card Connection, one of the UK’s leading greeting card publisher and franchisors, has announced that it has selected a new franchise manager, Scott Gibson, for the South East region, covering Leicester to London, plus East Anglia and Sussex. Gibson will take over responsibility for providing help and support to 20 franchisees in territories across this region.
Commenting on his new appointment, Gibson said, “My direct-to-retail background will allow me to provide a structured sales approach for franchisees. With the backing of Card Connection's head office, the well organised support team, plus the resources of parent company UKG to draw on, I am looking forward to making a valuable contribution to helping franchisees accelerate the profits of their individual businesses. Opening new retail accounts where franchisees will supply Card Connection's vast range of quality greeting cards and innovative party accessories will be key to my approach, as well as working closely with retailers to see how we can optimise the level of stock in existing outlets.”
According to the information provided, Scott Gibson has 18 years' sales experience, having worked in organisations including: The Great British Card Co, SJG Agencies (main agent for Wishing Well Studios Ltd and Abracadabra gifts), Carlton Cards Ltd, Paper Island Greetings Ltd, Gala UK Ltd, Sapphire Greetings and Gibson Greetings International Ltd.
Card Connection is part of UK Greetings, the largest publicly owned greeting card publisher in the world and has limited vacancies for franchisees who are keen to run an expanding business. Successful candidates would ideally have some management experience as, once established, they would be expected to employ a small team, operate a warehouse and have several liveried vans on the road.
