Appliance buying group Sirius Buying Group has appointed Mark Veysey as its new general manager, with Veysey set to take on the responsibility of helping Sirius approved members and suppliers “take full advantage of the different business services available from the group”.

Veysey previously spent seven years at Retra, a UK trade association for independent electrical retailers and servicing organisations. Prior to that Veysey spent 15 years working within the building materials sector, including at Spring Ram and Brett Martin.

“I am looking forward to joining the team at Sirius, in particular during this current exciting growth phase where I hope to further strengthen the services and support supplied to our members,” Veysey said.

“My aim is to create strategies that support the growth plans of the group and profit from my broad based business experience to date.”

Sirius commercial director Steve Jones added: “As a senior business leader with experience in diverse business sectors from FMCG to building materials, to more recently the independent electronic retailers’ sector, we are confident Mark will be able to capitalise on his extensive experience and success in business services, operations, finance and business growth and development, and bring a renewed degree of expertise to the group.”

He added: “The appointment of a new general manager was an inevitable move for us, as we needed a dedicated person to oversee daily business activities, improve overall functions and implement new strategic plans to develop business.

“We are confident that Mark will be able to communicate these goals and establish new market resilience as 2019 will see the group safeguard ‘the independent’ – especially amid post-Brexit rules.”
