The classic and traditional card and board games supplier David Westnedge has bolstered its marketing operations with the appointment of a new marketing officer, Lydia Batty.
In her new role, Batty will assume responsibility for marketing products, brand management and book buying. Prior to joining David Westnedge, she kickstarted her career in a variety of roles both in the UK and the US.
Batty will utilise this experience to help drive sales for David Westnedge, both in bricks and mortar stores and online.
“Lydia’s greatest strengths are her creativity, drive and leadership,” said a representative from David Westnedge. “She thrives on challenges, particularly those that expand the company’s reach. She thrives in a collaborative and fast-paced environment, loving nothing more than a good data crunch to solve a puzzle and boost online performance.”
In her free time, Lydia likes to race motorcycles competitively and play Mr Jack with friends.
