She will oversee key accounts within the business including Argos, Tesco, Lakeland, Robert Dyas and QVC.
Mr Street joins the company with more than 20 years of experience selling to independent retailers.

Scott Brothers managing director Duncan Pratt-Thompson said: "In her new role, Jayne will be reviewing and driving our sales strategy and ensuring we continue to deliver excellent customer service across our retail base. Jayne will also be looking at how we can deliver our newly extended product range to our client base. Alan has come on board to focus on the up until recently neglected independent sector - an area where we have seen real growth in the past six months driven by innovation in SMEs and a determination to succeed in sticky economic times.
