DiscountVouchers.co.uk Strengthens Retail Team with New Management Appointment
Online voucher site boosts its senior network of retail specialists with new recruit
Lara will manage communications between the six million subscribed members of the DiscountVouchers.co.uk community and maintain relationships with merchants and affiliates, driving new revenues for the company. Since its launch in 2009 DiscountVouchers.co.uk has seen daily visitors to its site increase to 50,000. Lara is the latest appointment, following the recruitment of Kathryn Wright, who joined in August last year as director of online strategy.
Lara commented: “I'm really looking forward to working in an exciting and evolving sector and applying my skills to new partners and affiliates. From my experience in the public sector and charity partners, my strengths lie in communication and partnership, working for mutual benefit.
“DiscountVouchers.co.uk has focused and honed its strengths over the past 12 months and I will be helping to build on this, by concentrating on community engagement and user experience in particular.”
Gareth Robinson, CEO of DiscountVouchers.co.uk commented: “The appointment of Lara is the next step of our growth plan to establish DiscountVouchers.co.uk as the number one place to visit when looking for the best money saving offers and advice on the web. The online retail space is a highly competitive industry and voucher codes give merchants a strategic competitive advantage over their competitors and provide consumers with great value.”
The DiscountVouchers.co.uk website is updated in real time and features money saving offers from both major high street brands and specialist retailers, including stores such as Sainsbury’s, Marks & Spencer, Waitrose, Travelodge, Thomas Cook and John Lewis.
