Woolridge has also held roles at musigMagpie and Envirofone
E-Giant, home of WeBuyAnyPhone. com and PhonesDirect.com, has appointed former Mazuma-man Justin Woolridge as head of commercial.
Woolridge, who will support E-Giant’s growth strategy in his new role based in Whiteley near Southampton, is tasked with building a new commercial team to help preserve the company’s reputation of being one of the UK’s leading second-life technology providers.
He has more than a decade of knowledge in the technology recycling industry and joins the business following roles at musicMagpie, Mazuma and Envirofone.
The company has recently launched WeBuyAnyPhone.com for businesses, allowing organisations to trade in five or more devices.
“I am joining WeBuyAnyPhone.com and PhonesDirect.com during a period of expansive growth as they continue to make their mark as a major player in device recycling and e-commerce,” said Woolridge.
“As established yet agile players in a highly competitive market, our businesses are in a unique position to move quickly and innovate in response to demand as consumers are increasingly aware of the financial and environmental benefits of electronics recycling.”
E-Giant CEO Alex Berthonneau said: “Justin’s record in the industry speaks for itself, and we are delighted to welcome him to help build on our strong foundations while creating new opportunities for diversification and growth.
“Together, we have very exciting plans for WeBuyAnyPhone.com and PhonesDirect.com.”
