iCandy announced the appointment of Cath Needham as the company’s new head of sales this week.

Needham is said to be an experienced national account manager with 30 years of experience in the nursery industry. She joined the company from Emmaljunga Limited.

As Head of Sales, Needham will be responsible for leading the overall sales strategy for the business, along with managing and developing the sales force.

iCandy is a family business first established in 1933 as a fashion design and manufacturing company in London. In the late 1970s and into the 1980s, the business began designing and manufacturing children’s bicycle helmets and child safety seats, before developing a range of widely sold nursery products.

In 2007, after over 70 years of research and development, iCandy launched its first multi-configuration stroller, the Apple 2 Pear, which is a single to double stroller in a single footprint.

Martin Boyle, Managing Director of iCandy said: “We are delighted to welcome Kat to the team here at iCandy. She brings a breadth of unique sales experience that we know will prove invaluable at an incredibly exciting time for the company.”

Needham added: “Having known and loved the iCandy brand for many years, I am very excited to join such an innovative and passionate team.

“iCandy combines the best of innovative design concepts with a real understanding of their end user and I’m really looking forward to helping the business achieve further success both in the UK and internationally.”
