Trekmates has appointed Claire Stuart as marketing manager, reporting to the British company's new chief executive, Mark Billing, who was brought in last July by its new owner, Bolling Group. She worked previously at VF Corporation and at Pearson Corporation. Billing has further strengthened his team with a new area sales manager for the North of England and Scotland, and by hiring two new members to its design and development staff. One of them is Neil Jones, who has held design roles at Mountain Equipment, Musto, Rohan and Regatta.
