Advantia Business Solutions has announced that Beck Miller has been promoted to the Board of Directors as Operations Director with immediate effect.
Beck joined Advantia seven years ago as Purchasing & IT Administrator. She was soon recognised and promoted to the position of Operations Manager which included leading Advantia’s marketing team.
Beck’s new role as Operations Director will encompass merchandising, marketing and operations. She is a key member of the group working with Advantia’s software partner Comgem on the development of Advantia’s new e-commerce marketplace platform and is also seeking new product opportunities for members from a diverse range of markets outside the traditional office supplies sector.
Beck Miller said, “I am bringing fresh ideas to the Board especially in merchandising and diversification, I am very much looking forward to helping the Board drive forward our new e-commerce marketplace platform which will open up fantastic opportunities in new market sectors, and because of the unique way that the suppliers’ datasets are centrally managed, it will free up time and reduce costs for our members; exciting times ahead.”
Advantia Chairman, Bob Geens added, “Beck has proven herself to be a very effective member of our senior team. Her skills, enthusiasm and knowledge will be invaluable to us as we strive to help our members reduce operational costs and enable them to diversify and trade in new ways in new market sectors. The Group recognises the importance of accurate and complete data for our e-commerce marketplace platform and members’ product files and Beck is currently working with suppliers and Advantia’s IT team to ensure that our data is best-in-class.”
