Delivering value for Multi-Academy Trusts

13/10/2016

As a leading supplier to the education sector, we are committed to helping schools achieve best value. We are therefore delighted to announce the appointment of John Richards as Business Development Manager for Education. In his new role, John will work closely with multi-academy trusts (MATs) to help them meet their specific requirements.

John brings with him a wealth of experience and offers nationwide support to help MATs to aggregate spend and take advantage of the economies of scale that group purchasing can offer. Before taking his new role, John worked with us for three years in field sales, having previously working for 20 years in a sales role within the printing industry. John is a keen promoter of the eProcurement method of schools’ purchasing and has worked with numerous primary and secondary schools to help them save time and money.

On his new role, John said: "I’m really excited to be taking on this new role. The growth of MATs is opening up a wealth of opportunities as well as posing a number of challenges. We know that for schools, it’s important to ensure budgets are maximised in the area that they really matter - classrooms and teachers. As a dedicated point of contact for MATs, my role is to help MATs overcome these challenges and achieve best value."

If you are part of a MAT, contact John today and to find out how we can save you money, streamline processes and provide a quality-assured solution to consolidated purchasing.
