The Group Development team help us extend our competitive advantage and identify, deliver and drive new revenue streams for the business. They monitor our existing markets and competitors, and enable us to offer a wider range of goods and services to our millions of customers. As we grow, they identify potential acquisitions plus support the integration of these, and develop new opportunities to expand our brands into new overseas markets and channels.
Having already launched into the US and Germany we look to grow our presence in these key home shopping markets.
As part of our growth strategy we are trialling some stores for our Simply Be brand to give us a true multichannel offer, and this complements the High and Mighty store based business we acquired in 2009.
By working with 3rd party providers we promote relevant financial and other services to our customer base.
