Talysis Ltd has appointed Luke Harris to the newly created role of commercial director, as the company seeks to continue its ambitious growth trajectory.
Harris joins after six years at SalesOut, most recently as its director of wholesale.
With a background in the convenience and wholesale sector, Harris has a wealth of experience from both commercial and operational roles, having worked for Central England Co-op and My Local prior to SalesOut.
“It’s been a really positive few years at SalesOut, developing and fulfilling the strategic plan, but I couldn’t turn down this opportunity,” said Harris.
“Talysis are a small yet agile business, but their product diversity and future potential is huge. I’m keen to harness this offering, to ensure that it’s commercially driven and targeted at the right channels.”
‘Drive The Business Forward’
Ed Roberts, managing director of Talysis Ltd, welcomed Harris to his new role.
“I’m excited to welcome someone of Luke’s calibre to the team, as we look to drive the business forward. Just over a year into our three-year growth strategy, we’re already on target to deliver our ambitious plans.
“With Luke on board, I’m confident that we’ll gain further momentum and ensure the business is in prime position to capitalise on future opportunities.”
Talysis Ltd recently launched a new service designed to make it easy for brands to ‘keep their fingers on the pulse’ of pricing and promotional activity across the Irish retail market.
According to Talysis, the PriceCube tool provides weekly stock-keeping unit (SKU) pricing and promotional information on all FMCG categories across the main Irish supermarkets, including Dunnes Stores and Tesco Ireland.
The provision of data from Dunnes Stores is seen as hugely beneficial for brands operating in the Irish market, as this is the first time that such insight has been available, Talysis added.
