Time and More UK Ltd, the wholesale distributors of Briston watches and Columbia Sportswear watches, has announced the appointment of Neil Morley as sales director.
Mr Morley (pictured top) joins Time and More managing director Duncan Harris. The two worked together at Rotary but Mr Harris left in January to set up the new distribution business and Mr Morley moved to the business in June.
Between them, the team has around 25 years’ experience in the volume watch business, having held commercial roles at Timex, Bulova, Fossil and Zeon.
“Neil has experience that is very hard to find,” says Mr Harris. “Our market is an incredibly tough one, without all the changes Covid has imposed on us all. So, understanding how brands now need to interact with retailers both big and small – is incredibly important. At the same time, Neil will be working with our partners in focusing on more strategic communications around new product launches, to be more open to broader audiences outside of what has always been considered the norm. Time and More’s relationships with its current brands and continued conversations with new partners alike continues to support this mission.”
Mr Morley says he is excited to be joining the leadership team of the new company. “Opportunities like this don’t come along that often. Time and More UK has already proven itself as one of the most passionate, progressive, and innovative companies in the watch distribution sector, despite being the new kid on the block. I am looking forward to helping realise the potential of this fast-growing company to help retailers engage new audiences and demonstrate the importance of effective the communication of new brands direct to their consumers,” he describes.
