John O’Nions who was recently appointed to the role of Business Development and Strategy Director for the Ritchie Group will focus on establishing, strengthening and deepening relationships with our supply chain partners. John is well known in the trade and has a wealth of experience in both the Christian and General Market sectors, ideally equipping him for this role. His experience and knowledge will be of significant benefit in ensuring that the distribution division of John Ritchie Ltd (soon to be re-branded Trust Media Distribution) is well placed to take advantage of opportunities as they present themselves.
Paul Davies, Finance Director will assume responsibility for procurement budgets and stock management functions. Paul’s primary focus will be on ensuring high rates of stock availability and fill rate on key titles.
Commenting on the changes, John Ritchie Group CEO Ken Munro said “I am convinced that this restructure will deliver excellent outcomes in the two key elements of supply chain: relationships with our partners and efficient internal procedures. John and Paul bring considerable strength to these two areas and therefore we should see tangible benefits internally and more importantly for our suppliers and customers".
