Tabitha Hunter-Smale becomes Sugro’s Head of Business Development

Sugro has promoted Tabitha Hunter-Smale to become its head of business development.

The former business development manager joined the buying group in 2018 and has been a key part in the company’s renaissance under Managing Director Neil Turton.

“I’m delighted to have received this recognition,” said Hunter-Smale.

“I will use my new position to continue to strengthen the Business Development department and membership offering.

“My time at Sugro UK has already been incredibly rewarding, and I look forward to what more can be achieved within the team.”

Sugro has recruited four new members in the past year and grew 12% year-on-year in the same period, which highlights the steady footing the group is on.

And MD Turton felt the time was right to recognise the efforts of Hunter-Smale within her time.

“Tabitha has delivered exceptional results over the past 3 years and especially during the pandemic period,” Turton said.

“She’s been keeping in touch with members, sustaining relationships and developing new business with members and suppliers, as well as presenting two successful online conferences.

“She is a key part of the Sugro Team and we are delighted to recognise this with a promotion to head of business development.”
