UKG has appointed Darren Cave (pictured above) as director of field sales, replacing Tony Roberts who is leaving UKG to take up the role of sales director at IC&G. After completing a Tesco Retail Graduate scheme, Darren joined the industry in 2005 with Watermark Publishing, where he was promoted to associate commercial director and involved in many aspects of the business. Darren joined UKG in 2014 when he took over as director of merchandising following on from the retirement of industry stalwart, Martyn Hammond.

Commenting about his new role, Darren said: “I’m really looking forward to working with our independent customers to ensure that we maximise every sales opportunity in this extremely challenging retail environment. It’s important to me that we continue to develop the strength of our service proposition in order to complement the outstanding product offer we have available. I expect challenging yet fun times ahead and, I really can’t wait to get started!”

Jayne Myers, commercial director, UKG commented: “We are looking forward to this new chapter which has allowed us to consider and refocus our position to support efforts in the field. Darren’s track record speaks for itself and we are confident this role is in very capable hands.”
