TTK Confectionery appoints new commercial director

Nottingham-based food gifting company TTK Confectionery have appointed Katie Gilbert as their new commercial director.

The commercial director role is new and has been created as the result of a sustained period of significant growth at the company. Katie will be the second female director on the board and at only twenty-six will be their youngest ever appointment.

TTK Confectionery create food gifting solutions for major retailers across the UK such as Sainsburys, Morrisons, Matalan, Urban Outfitters and WH Smith. They also sell to over twenty-one countries worldwide as far afield as Canada and Australia.

Katie has been with the company since its creation. She first joined the company on a university internship steering the creative direction of the business. With the guidance and support of the board she developed skills in a number of areas showing a natural gift for leadership and strategic thinking. She now heads a team of eight and plays an integral part in the running of the company, managing multimillion pound budgets across several departments.

Speaking about the new appointment Katie said: “I’m extraordinarily proud that I’ve managed to reach this pivotal point of TTK’s growth journey and that I get to help shape our future. It’s a pleasure to be able to have such an influence over our strategy and I owe it all to the belief that our directors had in me from the very beginning.”

CEO Martin Barnett said: “Katie is a shining example of what can be achieved through hard work and dedication. Her team are inspired by her journey at TTK and we are delighted that she is now taking her place as a member of the board. We are so proud of all she has achieved both within the business and personally.”
