Harris Technology (HT8) has appointed Guy Polak as a company director effective from April 1 2021.

Harris Technology is an IT and electronic goods company who sells products such as mobile phone accessories, inks and toners, antivirus software and gaming products.

Guy brings over 25 years of experience in the retail industry, having specialised in sales, wholesale, distribution, buying, sourcing, merchandising and ownership.

In 2014, Guy was promoted to Head of Buying at Catch Group, an online marketplace retailer, where he reported directly to the CEO.
