EO Group appoints new Head of Category

The EO Group has announced the appointment of Kath Briggs as Head of Category, effective 1st September 2021. 

As the Head of Category, Kath will be working across all the business units. She will be working closely with existing suppliers to deepen the commercial relationships, as well as developing new supplier frameworks to open emerging categories in a quickly changing supply chain. 

Kath joins the EO Group from VOW where she was the Channel Sales Director overseeing several business units; including 600 small to medium-sized dealers, VOW's online channel, the Convenience sector, the Post Office and grocery retailers. 

Kath started off in the industry by owning her own business selling IT and office supplies, and this along with the rest of her 30 years of experience in the office supplies industry makes her ideal to support the EO Group's next growth chapter. 

Kath said, "I'm thrilled to join the EO Group as Head of Category. The EO Group is a dynamic organisation that has successfully evolved to meet the demands of an ever-changing industry. It's a really exciting time for the business, and there is a lot to do, which excites me the most about the role: the opportunity to make a difference."

Simon Drakeford, CEO of EO Group added, "I'm delighted that Kath is joining the EO Group at exactly the right time. To have her extensive experience of the market, the dealer and wholesale channel will be a huge asset as we lift off post-pandemic and fully optimise the advantageous position our technology and online business models give us. There are huge amounts of potential and Kath is perfectly positioned to help us unlock it."
