Former Winning Group buyer, Scott Whitney (pictured below) has joined retraVision as relationship and buying manager based in Sydney.

Whitney left the Winning Group at the end of May after only one year in the role with his responsibilities absorbed by the group buying team.

Commenting on Whitney’s appointment, Retravision managing director, David Dorsett-Lynn said he is pleased to welcome Scott into the business.

“We have always been aware that our business operates from Western Australia and most of our suppliers are located in Sydney, so to improve our communication and access to key partners, we felt it was time to employ a senior person on the ground in Sydney,” he told Appliance Retailer.

“Scott is someone that fits our culture, which is extremely important to us. We will continue to work hard with our trade partners in WA, but this will bring us closer to suppliers based in NSW and VIC. We see this a strong step forward for retraVision.”

Prior to his time at Winning Group, Whitney was group category and marketing manager at Narta for over six years. He has also held positions with Samsung, Grays and Saeco.
