Trade association, the Kbsa has appointed owner of Roman Bathrooms Caroline Cooper to the board of directors and to act as bathroom retail ambassador.
Caroline Cooper is an award winning designer with 30 years’ experience in the bathroom industry.
She runs Roman Bathrooms with her daughter, who is also a director, which has five members of staff and five installation teams.
Cooper said: “I am delighted to be given this opportunity to work with the Kbsa board and help bathroom retailers understand that the Kbsa can bring substantial benefits to their business.
“I want to dispel the misconception that bathroom retailers don’t have a body to support and protect them, and show that the Kbsa can represent their interests, just as it does for kitchen retailers.”
National chair Richard Hibbert said, “Caroline will be a great asset to the board. Her experience will help us identify the challenges and issues that are specific to bathroom retailers, helping us refine our offer and bring the benefits of Kbsa membership to a wider audience.”
Founded in 1978, the association represents independent kbb specialists and over 100 brands supplying the industry support the association.
Its key objective is promoting the professionalism of the independent specialist retailer.
The Kbsa recently welcomed the budget, citing it was good news for small businesses and independent retailers.
