Harding Retail appoints new buying and merchandising director

Cruise ship shop operator Harding Retail has appointed James Prescott as its new buying and merchandising director.

Currently general manager of operations for the Middle East with Aer Rianta International, Prescott will take up his new position in March 2014.

Prescott’s career in retail includes working with Allders before moving to World Duty Free as head of category – liquor, tobacco, food, tax free and luxury goods. In 2006, he joined Whyte & Mackay as global travel retail director before moving to ARI-ME.

Harding Retail managing director Harold Gittelmon said: “James is joining Harding Retail at a very exciting time for the company. Alongside our new name and branding, we’re moving towards a much more consumer-focused retail approach – where the customer is at the centre of everything we do.

“With his deep understanding of brands and experience from two of the world’s most dynamic travel retailers, James could not be a better choice for the future development of our business.”
