Simply Brands appoints Tom Kay

Automotive accessories supplier, Simply Brands, has announced the appointment of Tom Kay as Digital Manager.

As the company continues to expand its team, Kay will be responsible for all things digital, which includes social media, as well as redeveloping the website to make it faster, more efficient and more user friendly for both the trade and public in the UK and Europe. Tom Kay will also be helping to develop ways to deliver application and product data to customers, including mobile responsive application finders. 

“I am very excited to be a part of the Simply Brands team, the company has grown so much, so quickly that I can really get stuck in and make my mark on the company,” said Tom Kay. “We are going to be looking closely at the customer experience across all our platforms, a new website will be at the centre of that work and will be a big transformation and the flagship around which we will improve our digital presence. 

“I have not worked in the aftermarket before, but I am in good hands with the Simply Brands team and I am looking forward to learning more and bringing my experience to the table.” 

Tom Kay to spearhead digital growth

CEO at Simply Brands, Ollie Page, said: “Over the last few years, especially during COVID-19, we saw the automotive aftermarket take a definitive shift towards digital, whether that is placing orders, looking for quick access to technical and product information and even reading trade magazines – not to mention the importance that social media now plays in growing our brand awareness.

“As a result, now more than ever is the right time to be investing in our digital presence and Tom Kay will spearhead this, as we enter yet another stage of growth.”

Simply Brands products are distributed in the UK and Ireland through JRP Distribution.
