Birmingham, West Midlands (PRWEB UK) 4 January 2013
Mobile Fun’s aggressive expansion over the past 12 months has led to the online retailer appointing Shiah Yoong as Product and Purchasing Manager. Shiah will be responsible for expanding the company’s product ranges and maintaining good relations with existing and new suppliers to meet growing demand for mobile device accessories.
Bringing over nine years of retail and ecommerce experience to the new role, Shiah will manage a team of eight product specialists and buyers, working with the purchasing team to improve product availability across Mobile Fun’s websites portfolio.
Shiah commented on her appointment: “Mobile Fun is a very successful award-winning company with ambitious goals, and I accepted this role because it is challenging and fast-paced with great responsibilities and opportunity for career progression. Not only will I be involved in delivering an excellent product range, but also maintaining Mobile Fun’s reputation by ensuring availability of the latest products as well as best sellers.”
Shiah will report directly to Mobile Fun’s Managing Director, Mohammed Hussain, who added: “Our customers expect Mobile Fun’s websites to provide product variety, easy-to-find information, good availability and customer’s product reviews.
“We recruited Shiah to meet growing demand in the UK and internationally and, as a result of her eCommerce trading experience with Tesco and Halfords, we see her contribution as key to further improving customer satisfaction. Shiah will also ensure we continue to provide the largest selection of accessories and that our core range offers high availability, as per our ‘Everything First’ rapid delivery promise, where UK orders placed before 6pm are shipped to customers that same day.”
Founded in 2000, the independently-owned and award-winning online retailer recently announced that it is seeking a buyer to support the Company in achieving its international expansion ambitions.
