Blue Max Banner has announced a new board appointment.

Laura Thomas takes up the role of group sales and marketing director with immediate effect.

Ms Thomas has a long-standing and distinguished career in the sales and marketing of sportswear, having worked as a group marketing director/ deputy managing director for Kukri Sports. She is also an ex-international netball player.

Nigel Plenderleith, CEO at BMB, said: “We have been looking to appoint a candidate to this senior position for some time. Laura is ideal for the role and we are delighted that she will be bringing her depth of knowledge and experience to the BMB business.”

Ms Thomas has a degree in retail management from Loughborough University. Career highlights involve being part of the Kukri team awarded the Team England contract for the supply of performance, leisure and formal wear to the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Ms Thomas’ appointment together with the acquisition of the Orion Teamwear brand announced earlier this month is evidence of BMB’s commitment to create a strong, competitive and well-designed sportswear brand with an operational performance to match.

Her responsibilities will cover all aspects of BMB’s sales and marketing requirements. Her initial remit will be to work closely with the BMB sales teams, meeting customers and understanding their needs, together with looking at bringing fresh ideas to the company’s marketing and branding strategies.
