Magformers bolsters team with key appointments

Magformers has strengthened its UK team with the addition of three new appointments.

Jill MacNeill has been named sales executive and will be responsible for developing the company’s growing business in Ireland.

Elsewhere, Patricia Hartshorn joins as office manager of the firm’s UK office in Cheshire. She brings a wealth of experience to the new role, having previously worked with The Edinburgh Woollen Mill.

Lastly, Jill Paget has been appointed as company accountant. Prior to her role at Magformers, Paget worked as company accountant at Form Nutrition Ltd.

“Magformers is already enjoying considerable success in Ireland thanks to the support we’ve received from retailers so the time is right to have a dedicated sales resource on the ground in the region,” said David Kelly, MD of Magformers.

“Jill MacNeill brings an enormous amount of retail experience with her and I believe her deep understanding and empathy with retail will play an important part in expanding our sales in Ireland.

“Jill Paget and Trish are already having an impact in the smooth running of the head office.”
