New Appointments in Slurp’s UK Purchasing and Accounts Team
Slurp today announced the promotion of two internal candidates into prominent roles within the UK-based Purchasing Division. Alex Gonszor will take up the role of Purchasing Manager and will head the Purchasing department. Alex is a product of the highly successful Slurp graduate training programme, having joined Slurp direct from University. He will retain specific responsibility for Fine Wine trading in addition to his managerial duties. Joining Alex in the Purchasing team will be Ellie Warder. Yet another Slurp Graduate Trainee, Ellie has been working in Logistics and Purchasing for the past year. She will now transfer to the Purchasing Group full-time with overall responsibility for all retail purchasing.
In a further development, external hire Katherine Booth has been appointed as Slurp's first Group Financial Controller. Katherine is a highly experience management accountant, with spells at Apax Partners and KPMG (in New Zealand) under her belt. She will report to the main Group Board and specifically to new Finance Director John Smithurst. With the launch of SlurpVin.fr in France and SlurpWein.de in Germany (complimenting the thriving Slurp.asia business) a more globally-coordinated approach was required at this time, and our Accounts staff in the UK and Hong Kong will all report to Katherine.
