Greeting card publisher and franchisor, Card Connection, has announced that it has selected a new Franchise Manager for the South East region.

In his new role, Scott Gibson will take over the responsibility for providing help and support to 20 franchise owners in territories across the South East region, which covers Leicester to London and includes East Anglia and Sussex.

“My direct-to-retail background will allow me to provide a structured sales approach for franchise owners,” said Gibson. “With the backing of Card Connection’s head office, the well organised support team, plus the resources of parent company UKG to draw on, I am looking forward to making a valuable contribution to helping franchise owners accelerate the profits of their individual businesses. Opening new retail accounts where franchise owners will supply Card Connection’s vast range of quality greeting cards and innovative party accessories will be key to my approach, as well as working closely with retailers to see how we can optimise the level of stock in existing outlets.”

Gibson has 18 years of sales experience, having worked in organisations including: The Great British Card Co, SJG Agencies (main agent for Wishing Well Studios Ltd and Abracadabra gifts), Carlton Cards Ltd, Paper Island Greetings Ltd, Gala UK Ltd, Sapphire Greetings and Gibson Greetings International Ltd.
