Blu Leisure gears up for growth

18 Jul 2023
Tiffany Barritt has been promoted to Business Development Manager / Blu Leisure
Trailblazing leisure retail and bespoke uniform specialist, Blu Leisure, has announced the promotion of Tiffany Barritt into the role of Business Development Manager to support the brand’s ongoing commitment to expanding its presence in existing markets whilst also venturing into new, international territories.

Tiffany started her Blu Leisure journey back in 2021 when she joined as Retail Executive, swiftly moving into the role of Retail Manager, supporting Blu’s diverse portfolio of clients, assisting with all aspects of stock selection, product management and payment processes.

As the business has grown in terms of new client acquisitions and the expansion of existing client requirements, an opportunity to proactively amplify its influence and promote its developing retail collections has emerged. Tiffany has been appointed to spearhead this part of the growth strategy.

In addition to actively seeking new retail partners in the fitness, spa, attractions and hospitality markets, Tiffany will also drive the company’s marketing activity and playing an active role in the design and development of captivating new retail lines.

Speaking about the promotion, Tiffany says: “Blu Leisure is at a transformational point in its evolution. In response to operator needs, the company has developed a new ecommerce service providing a quick and easy means of ordering retail apparel and accessories around the clock, with no minimum order requirement. Sourced from our network of carefully selected international suppliers, we are offering high-quality, eye-catching products at a price that allows for a mark-up price of at least 50 per cent. This creates significant profit opportunities for our clients.

“This service is gaining momentum and my role will be to harness the growing interest from operators to strengthen an already thriving retail division.”

Tiffany’s new role has come into effect this month. Vicki Peck, MD at Blu Leisure, adds: “Tiffany has been a valued member of our team for the last two years. Her boundless creativity, meticulous attention to detail and her unwavering determination means she is perfectly placed to propel the business forwards. With our ecommerce service flourishing and an exciting new range of eco-friendly products on the brink of launch, I am excited to steer the business into the next phase of its development.”
