REL is excited to announce the appointment of Nick McGrath as Managing Director.

During Nick’s career he has worked in retail, on premise and foodservice channels, with senior UK and European roles at PepsiCo and previously Mars before he moved to the Panasonic Sales Director role.  Nick started his career in Sales and Marketing as a Field Sales Representative, so Field Marketing has always been close to his heart.

With full responsibility for the leadership and development of the REL business, Nick brings a strong skillset coupled with industry experience, proven leadership skills and an excellent reputation of leading high-performing teams.  Nick will play a key part in building on REL’s outstanding reputation of being a customer-first focused business and leaders in people engagement.

Nick’s experience, skill set and perspective gives us every confidence he will excel in his role as REL Managing Director, building on Stephen Gordon’s great work over the years.  Stephen Gordon, REL’s outgoing Managing Director, takes up the role of People Director within REL’s parent company, Advantage Smollan.

Commenting on Nick’s appointment, Nicky Sanderson, Head of UK Sales Solutions, said:

We are delighted to welcome Nick McGrath to the role of Managing Director of REL.  Nick has extensive experience from a number of key, senior leadership roles and will be pivotal in leading our business into the future, utilising our group expertise to deliver intelligent solutions to help our clients sell and market better.

Nick added:

It is deeply impressive to see the trajectory the business has been on these last few years and I am excited to be joining REL and the Advantage Smollan group at this time.  I am looking forward to working with a strong team of experts and building on REL’s market leading approach as we evolve to meet the ‘new normal’.
