NFRN hires Greg Deacon as chief operating officer
The National Federation of Retail Newsagents has appointed Greg Deacon as its new chief operating officer.
Due to join the organisation on 9 September, he will work from its head office in London.
Deacon currently works with Camelot where he heads up the field sales force. Prior to that, he held roles at News UK and Telegraph Media Group.
The NFRN national president Stuart Reddish said: “Greg has worked closely with the NFRN for many years, firstly when he was employed in the news industry, working for the Daily Telegraph and for News UK and more latterly at Camelot where he heads up the field sales force so he understands the challenges facing independent retailers.
“He has a wealth of experience of the industry, huge enthusiasm and a proven track record of achievement which equips him well to represent the interests of independent retailers.”
Founded in 1919, the NFRN is one of Europe’s largest employers’ associations with over 15,000 independent retail businesses as members in the UK and Ireland.
