CommerceHub has appointed Philip Hall as managing director of its European operations.
Mr Hall brings more than three decades’ experience to the role, joining from SaaS provider Vision Critical where he served as SVP for sales and marketing across EMEA regions.
He began his career in logistics in the 1980s, taking on the role of supply logistics manager at Sainsbury’s in the latter half of that decade. Mr Hall went on to spend more than 13 years in the food retail sector.
Chief executive of CommerceHub Frank Poore welcomed Mr Hall to the company, which provides a distributed commerce network linking supply, demand and delivery.
“As we continue to build our presence across Europe, Philip’s in-depth retail experience will play an instrumental role in building long-lasting partnerships with retailers and brands and assisting them with evolving to meet the needs of their customers,” he said.
Mr Hall said: “European retailers and brands are recognising the need to adapt more rapidly to keep up with customer demand. CommerceHub provides them with a connection to marketplaces and to suppliers to significantly increase their product assortment without adding the expense of physical inventory or distribution centres.”
