ICTC has announced that Bruce Crane is to join the company next month as managing director and shareholder.
ICTC has been working with Crane since February on a long-term strategic review, in preparation for his new role. He will retain ownership of Norwich cookshop Looses, which will continue to trade unaffected by the changes.
“Bruce’s appointment coincides with the move of the C’est Ça! textile factory from its Norwich city centre location where I began the company over 20 years ago,” said director Jak Rayner, who will now concentrate on buying and sourcing of product, and textile design. “C’est Ça! is now happily relocated beside ICTC in Caley Close in larger, purpose-built premises, so it’s a time of very positive consolidation for us.”
Will Payton remains as commercial director.
Crane said he was “thrilled to be joining ICTC. I have enormous respect for the team, and I’m looking forward to playing my part in helping them to further develop their business. Current market conditions are challenging: however I believe there are plenty of opportunities and ICTC are well placed to exploit them!”
