JML chief executive Ken Daly to feature on Buy it Now for Christmas
JML chief executive Ken Daly will be featuring on the Buy It Now for Christmas programme this evening.
Hosted by Rylan Clark-Neal, the first programme in the four-part series will air at 8pm tonight on Channel 4.
The series will see inventors from across the UK being given 90 seconds to pitch to an audience of real shoppers and receive live feedback on their products. The inventors will then face a panel of expert retailers as they look to land that life changing order.
Daly will sit on on a panel that also includes representatives from Amazon Launchpad and Lakeland. A household name in the UK, JML has a long history of investing in new brands and products.
Speaking of his involvement in the show, Daly said: “For the second year running, Buy It Now has been a launchpad for a number of British inventions. At JML, we’re always looking to invest in exciting new products, so it has been very rewarding to be a part of the show again and meet innovators from all over the UK.”
Through Daly’s involvement in the last series, JML bought into the Hairshark hairbrush brand and has subsequently purchased hundreds of thousands of units and introduced the product into Boots and other major retailers.
Daly added: “This time around we’ve sourced several more products through Buy It Now and are very excited about their potential.”
