Redundancies announced at Thierry's
Wine agency Thierry’s has made four voluntary redundancies as it diverts resources into its sales team.
The supermarket supplier trimmed the positions from support and administration as part of an efficiency drive.
Over the past year, the company has been appointing new sales managers. Nikki Fletcher, general manager, said the business needed to evolve to continue growing in a “challenging time”.
“During 2009 we invested in our sales capabilities, specifically national account managers’, she said. “We have also invested in process improvement, training and new technology and we are fully committed to continuing to invest in our sales resource in 2010 in order to grow our business.
“These investments enable us to move the balance of our resources further towards sales/account management and to reduce slightly the size our support and administration functions. As a consequence, four of our team opted for voluntary redundancy and left at the end of last month.”
She said no further redundancies were envisaged.
