Sharp seeks marketing director

Sharp Electronics is seeking a marketing director as part of a restructure of the company following its relocation to London from Manchester.

The move brings consumer electronics and business divisions together for the first time.

The marketing role includes responsibility for business planning, product management, e-commerce and marketing communications.

The new appointment will work alongside head of marketing communications for consumer products Michael Gabriel, who has also had his role extended to all brand communication activities in the UK.

Sharp has made a number of senior appointments to its team including Andy Warren, the former head of Sony’s home products group, as head of the retail division. The division includes its LCD TVs, home appliances and entertainment products.

The company has also promoted Andrew Lee, the former head of solar and commercial audio-visual products, to general manager of its solar technology division. This is seen as a key growth area for the company.
