Vicki Uttridge has been promoted from commercial director at Sequel UK to managing director and will be responsible for growing the UK business as well as overseeing the day to day operating activities.
Previously commercial director, Uttridge has been with the business since February 2007 following a successful career in the watch and jewellery industry for more than 20 years.
She said: “I’m delighted to take the position of managing director and looking forward to further building on the business with my team."
Also welcoming Uttridge into the role, Sequel AG COO Alan Stone-Wigg said: “I am pleased to announce the appointment of Vicki Uttridge as managing director of Sequel UK. Having worked with Vicki for over six years I have every confidence that she will continue to drive the UK business forward as she has always demonstrated a strong passion and belief in our brands and customers.”
Additionally, Sequel UK’s Bill Leonard has left Sequel UK to pursue other career opportunities. Throughout Leonard’s eight year career with Sequel he has played a key role in the development of the UK business.
Meanwhile, the position of finance director has been filled by Paul Martin. Martin’s role will support Uttridge operationally and he will have direct oversight of the financial management of Sequel UK.
Most recently Martin was finance director with Shuropody so joins Sequel UK with a strong focus on retail as well as finance.
