One Big Idea Pty Ltd has today named Karim Sumar as the new Director for the company, and its trading entity Stock Box. Stock Box is a B2B product sampling service connecting independent retailers to product partners looking for more points of distribution for their brands.
Karim joins the team with over 30 years of senior retail management experience across the Supermarket and Petrol Convenience sectors, most notably for Caltex, and has served on the Australasian Association of Convenience Stores (AACS) as Chairman and as a Non-executive Director.
“I am very excited to have Karim on board”, said Stock Box Founder Craig Matthews. “Karim’s experience speaks for itself, and we share the same passion and interest in raising the profile and importance of independents, not just within the channels we currently operate in, but for all of the vertical channels that we plan to operate, in the future. Our mission is to provide suppliers and manufacturers with a voice, and give retailers the choice on products that are right for their business.”
“Stock Box has a great potential to link retailers and suppliers across multiple channels and markets. I am looking forward to the opportunity to join Craig in making Stock Box the first port of call for all retailers and suppliers” said Karim.
