Many in the industry will know Liz Young, Supplier Services Director at Sourcing City. Those closest to her will also know her passion for the environment, animals and well-being. After ten great years Liz has achieved much and now feels that she wants a new challenge and to pursue her passion of working in a specific role that is doing something positive to help the environment. Her new role is outside of the industry and one where she will head up a division of an established company that saves books from landfill and resells them back to new readers.
David Long, Founder and CEO of Sourcing City said: “After such a long-time, it is with a heavy heart we see Liz move on, at the same time I am pleased that she is following her passion. On a personal note, we are good friends and we will remain so socially, and we will even be running together in two upcoming 10k runs. I have no doubt her new company will benefit greatly from her skills and I warmly thank her for helping us to put Sourcing City as the clear market leader in our field within the industry.”
Liz commented: “I have loved my 10 years at Sourcing City and I am really proud of everything I have achieved with the company. I know I will miss my many friends in both the SC Team, the industry and the great people I deal with in it. I am also grateful for David’s support in this change and happy that we will remain firm friends.”
Liz does not leave until the 21st May, so she will have plenty of time to catch up with her friends in the trade.
An announcement on Liz’s successor is expected in the coming weeks.
