MarketPlace promotion for Hassell
MarketPlace Group has promoted Vernon Hassell to the position of vice-president of purchasing and procurement.
He has been with the company for 17 years, however he can trace his association with the MarketPlace back to his teenage years when he helped pack bags.

His responsibilities now include sourcing new products and vendors, developing new programmes, negotiating with existing vendors and providing leadership to the purchasing team.
