Gifted To You is pleased to announce the appointment of Kevin Coles and Alex Evans as Non-Executive Directors with immediate effect.

Continuing the year of rapid growth for the business, the appointments show a real commitment to embed the company’s plans to move into the European gifting and experience marketplace, with investment in the business to allow it to scale at a new pace.  

Kevin is an experienced executive and consultant in international payments and finance businesses including Barclays, Lloyds and Visa across the UK, Europe, US and Africa.

Kevin added; ‘I am delighted to be joining the board as a director and investor of Gifted To You. I believe it comes at an exciting time for the business with the recent acquisition of Lavish adding to the excellent products and services already on offer. 

Wendy Carter, Managing Director has a great track record of delivery and growth and I look forward to helping Wendy, the business and all customers achieve their aspirations and be delighted with their achievements.’

Alex has years’ experience at board level in the publishing and latterly printing industries and has a wealth of knowledge in the areas of capital investment, commercial strategy including sales and marketing, having spent over twenty years of his career at executive level.

‘I am delighted to join the business in a non-executive capacity. There is no denying that both businesses provide an excellent portfolio in their respective sectors providing customers with quality gifts and solutions. I look forward to be working with Wendy and am very excited to assist the businesses in growing.’

Wendy Carter said of the new appointments;  ‘I am delighted to welcome both Kevin and Alex to the board. Their combined significant experience, knowledge of the payments, retail and implementation of commercial growth strategies will greatly benefit the business, alongside investment which has kickstarted our move into Europe to offer B2B gifting and spa experiences. Myself and the team are thrilled with the new appointments.’

Both appointments take effect from 1 June 2018.
