Schoolblazer, the leading supplier of uniform and performance sportswear to independent schools have announced that they have appointed Chris Marshall as Sales Director. Chris will join in time for the summer term to drive the next phase of Schoolblazer’s continuing development.
Chris joins from Kukri where he was Sales Director of the UK and Europe. He is a keen sportsman and attended RGS Newcastle and Loughborough University before developing the Kukri brand initially in the Middle East.
Said Schoolblazer CoFounder, Robin Horsell, “Chris’ detailed knowledge of the independent school market and his personal love of sport will be a real asset to the Schoolblazer business. We have some exciting projects which we plan to announce in the near future and Chris will be crucial to delivering them. It’s a big step forward. Over the last few years sportswear has become an increasingly important part of Schoolblazer’s business and now accounts for almost half of our sales. Schoolblazer are the largest sportswear supplier to independent schools and our own Limitless brand is the leading brand in the Sector. Chris’ arrival will ensure that we can build on this momentum and capitalise on our strength in delivering both uniform and sportswear.”
