Industry legend Liz Young has returned to the promotional merchandise industry after 10 months in other roles.
Outstanding Branding are excited to welcome Liz Young as Commercial Manager, working alongside the rest of the management team in their London office.
“Liz brings so much knowledge, energy and enthusiasm to her work and everything she does, I know she will be a fantastic addition to OB,” said Outstanding Branding CEO, Sarah Penn. “With her knowledge of our industry, supply chain, and her great ability to engage and work with people, she is brilliantly placed to work in OB reviewing and refreshing how we work internally and with our suppliers”.
“Liz has a natural talent for sales,” comments Andy Thorne, Global Sales & Marketing Director. “Having a sales-minded manager involved in non-sales areas of our business will make us sharper, stronger, and more customer focused than ever. I can’t wait to see how the business evolves with Liz on the team as Commercial Manager”.
Young started in the promotional merchandise industry over 12 years ago; having spent 10 years with Sourcing City, she is hugely respected and a familiar face at events such as Merchandise World. Her passion for sustainability and environmental issues are very much in alignment with the focus of OB and their corporate clients.
“I’m so excited to join Outstanding Branding,” says Young. “Andy and Sarah have been business colleagues for so many years, and I love the prospect of helping them make Outstanding Branding even more successful. I will be getting my teeth into new projects straight away, and look forward to seeing the positive results”.
“Adding this level of experience into our management team as we grow can only benefit the company hugely,” concludes Thorne. “We can’t wait to have Liz involved in taking OB to the next level”.
