Kevin commented “I have a great passion for retail and the high street in general, and am really looking forward to develop and manage the sales process at Wilsons. They have a fantastic reputation for giving a first class service, and having this chance to work with the sales team here to grow the business is a great opportunity for me.”

He went on to say: “I am really looking forward to getting to know all of Wilsons customers and being able to support them with what they do.  I am very much into my cycling, and will be making sure my competitive edge is put to good use!”
