Fast growing FMCG wholesaler and distributer Pricecheck has promoted talent from within by appointing a new HR Director to help steer the business through its next phase of growth. 

Lucy Goddard, formally Head of HR at the Sheffield-based business, has been promoted to director level in recognition of her hard work and dedication towards the growth of Pricecheck. 

Lucy joined the company in 2015 as HR Manager and was the first and only HR person at Pricecheck.  She has been instrumental in recruitment over the past six years throughout the business but has also seen her own team expand around her increasing from one to five, with a current vacancy to fill.

Debbie Harrison, Joint Managing Director (Trading) said:

“Lucy has played such an important role in Pricecheck’s growth since joining us, seeing the team expand from around 75 to 300.  She has outstanding commercial and strategic business insight, plus excellent interpersonal and communication skills, so we couldn’t be happier to welcome her to the team of directors.  

“Diversity and inclusion at Pricecheck ensure that we have a variety of skills and experience across the company, and it has been a key driver behind our growth, so it’s great to see that 30 of our directors are now female!”

Lucy Goddard, HR Director, adds: “We have ambitious plans to deliver on our ‘Vision 200’ growth strategy over the next five years and I am very excited to play my part in helping the company to achieve its long-term goals.  

“The people at Pricecheck are our greatest asset so I will be looking to ensure that our people strategy continues to evolve alongside our growth strategy.  My focus will be in making sure that we have the right talent, skills and environment to enable our people to drive and deliver our growth targets.  I have lots of ideas so watch this space!”  

Pricecheck is an international distributor of fast-moving consumer goods, and is trusted by the world's biggest brands, offering more than 8,000 branded products to customers in the UK and to more than 80 countries globally.
