The NFRN has appointed Greg Deacon as its new chief operating officer. Deacon will take up his new position at the Federation’s head office in London on Monday, 9 September.
National Federation of Retail Newsagents’ national president Stuart Reddish said he is delighted with the announcement. “Greg has worked closely with the NFRN for many years,” Reddish said, “firstly when he was employed in the news industry, working for the Daily Telegraph and for News UK and more latterly at Camelot where he heads up the field sales force so he understands the challenges facing independent retailers.
“Greg joins at an exciting time for the NFRN as we come out of our centenary year and shape the next stage of our development,” he added. “He has a wealth of experience of the industry, huge enthusiasm and a proven track record of achievement which equips him well to represent the interests of independent retailers.
“Greg will be a real asset to the NFRN and I, the national executive committee, national finance committee, national council and senior management all look forward to working with him.”
Deacon joins the federation from Camelot, where he is currently head of field sales.
