TLM Technologies has recruited former Forecourt Trader of the Year Jonathan James to join its board as a non-executive director.

James has nearly 20 years industry experience in influential roles such as ACS chairman and NACS International Committee member, as well as chairman of James Convenience Retail, which has stores across England and Wales and is the UK’s third biggest deliverer of home news. He spent 12 years as a forecourt operator with his business James Graven & Sons, and now leases the company’s five forecourt sites to other operators.

TLM CEO Lee Papper said: “We are very excited to have Jonathan join the team. He brings so much to TLM, from his vast practical retail experience to his incredible reputation as a role model for entrepreneurial retailers, Jonathan will without doubt prove to be an invaluable addition to our board, our wider team, and our customers and partners.”

James commented: “As a retailer I have always tried to be innovative and forward thinking – pioneering the latest trends and technology in our industry, and I am therefore thrilled to join this dynamic team on their journey as they look to grow.”

Papper continued: “I am proud to say that TLM is still expanding rapidly and we have a very exciting year ahead of us, from the launch of our innovative evo+ solution in October, to the highly anticipated official launch of evoPOS next spring, TLM is going from strength to strength – and we are delighted that Jonathan will be helping steer us into continued success in the future.”
