Over the last four decades Jenny has built up an extensive portfolio of contacts both in the UK and overseas – predominantly in Asia and India. Sourcing products across a number of categories in both Homewares and Gifts, from selection through to launch, has given her a level of expertise and knowledge in all the key stages of development.
She has covered overseas shows and made foreign contacts for companies – both by following their briefs on sourcing for specific items and whole ranges and also making recommendations on product and suitable supply chains. She has trusted colleagues working overseas who support and oversee the continuity of delivering a sourcing project successfully
Jenny has organised and planned trips to China and India for prospective companies researching the sourcing potential and opportunities for buying direct. She is able to accompany clients on their trips and be their guide or put the necessary arrangements in place. Alternatively she can follow a brief and manage the trip of the client’s behalf.
“Jenny helped greatly in sourcing suppliers in the utility category from manufacturers in the Far East with excellent results – on time and with workable pricing. I could not have done this job myself, she knew where to go and who to talk to.” Steve Allcroft, Founder, Phoenix Rock
