LONDON, March 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Madvapes Holdings has embarked on a major business expansion strategy both in the USA and Europe. To lead this charge in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland we are pleased to announce the appointment of Tony Scanlan as CEO of Madvapes UK Ltd.
Mr. Scanlan is an experienced international manager having spent his career building businesses in the Tobacco, Mobile Phone and of late the Electronic Cigarette sectors.
Having spent many years at Rothmans International, where he built brands and sales in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, he looked for business opportunities to suit his talent. Always a pioneer he built a business in the emerging mobile phone e-transaction space which grew to a turnover of €65 million within three years and sold to investors within five.
