Wholesale data insight company, SalesOut IRI will see the return of the companies founder and former executive vice president, Marcus Vallance in the role of head of wholesale.
Vallance commented: “A lot has changed in the last 18 years. When we started SalesOut, there was no such thing as commercially available data in the wholesale industry. Now every forward-thinking wholesaler has commercialised their data for the benefit of their suppliers. However, even now data is not used to its full potential to drive daily decisions.
