AMG Group has announced a raft of new appointments this quarter, continuing its growth plans for 2018. Shona Quigley has joined as Chief Financial Officer, with a further four appointments in the sales, design and creative teams. The new distribution centre (DC) facility sees the largest increase with nine members of staff signing permanent contracts. The 14 new recruits see the business increase its staff by 15 percent.
AMG distributes its portfolio of Vango, F10 Series, Lichfield, Blacks of Greenock, Rossignol, Trangia, Wayfayrer, Anatom and Teko to over 40 countries worldwide and recently opened the Westway DC to meet demand. The opening of the Westway DC has driven staff expansion and will allow AMG to distribute from one central location, streamlining their operation for retailers and consumers.
In addition to Shona Quigley, AMG has appointed James Robertson as Graphic and Film Designer, Jason Gilmour as Assistant Product Manager, Stacey Cummings as Web and E-Commerce Assistant and Daniel Julier-Smith as Southern Territory Account Manager in UK.
Bernie McGown, HR and Operations Director at AMG, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Shona Quigley on board as Chief Financial Officer, who brings with her decades of experience from within the financial sector, which will be a vital asset to AMG’s continued expansion. Shona will be joined, at our Port Glasgow HQ, by fellow new starts, Jason, James and Stacey who bring their respective talents to our design, web and creative teams, with Daniel looking after sales in the south.”
Steve Newlands, CEO of AMG Group, added: “Welcoming new people to the AMG family is always a pleasure. This is a very exciting period of growth for the business, one in which we are investing in our team to ensure we continue to achieve our future goals.”
