Shona Quigley comes on board as Chief Financial Officer, with a further 4 appointments in the Sales, Design and Creative Teams. The new Distribution Centre (DC) facility sees the largest increase with 9 members of staff signing permanent contracts.
The 14 new recruits see the business increase its staff by 15%, taking the total across all three business sites (Port Glasgow HQ, AMG Services Glasgow and Westway Park DC) to 113 permanent employees.
AMG distributes its portfolio of Vango®, F10 Series®, Lichfield®, Blacks of Greenock®, Rossignol®, Trangia®, Wayfayrer®, Anatom® and Teko® to over 40 countries worldwide and recently opened the Westway DC to meet demand.
The opening of the Westway DC, a bespoke 113,209 ft² property, has driven staff expansion and will allow AMG to distribute from one central location, streamlining their operation for retailers and consumers. The new site means the DC Team will increase by 9 to 23 permanent staff, focusing on Inbound & Outbound logistics.
In addition to Shona Quigley, AMG bring in James Robertson as Graphic & Film Designer, Jason Gilmour as Assistant Product Manager and Stacey Cummings as Web & E-Commerce Assistant. Daniel Julier-Smith has been appointed as Southern Territory Account Manager in UK.
Bernie McGown, HR & Operations Director at AMG, said: “To rise to the challenges of a consolidated DC, we have increased the Westway Park Team to 23 dedicated members. This means we can despatch Sales Orders in consolidated batches, allowing us to provide first-class service to all of our customers; domestic and international alike.”
“I’m delighted to welcome Shona Quigley on board as Chief Financial Officer, who brings with her decades of experience from within the Financial Sector, which will be a vital asset to AMG’s continued expansion. Shona will be joined, at our Port Glasgow HQ, by fellow new starts, Jason, James and Stacey who bring their respective talents to our Design, Web and Creative Teams, with Daniel looking after Sales in the South.”
Steve Newlands, CEO of AMG Group, said: “Welcoming new people to the AMG family is always a pleasure. This is a very exciting period of growth for the business, one in which we are investing in our team to ensure we continue to achieve our future goals.”
