Clark succeeds Tracy Bamber who becomes MD of Zip Europe and Middle East
Sink and tap manufacturer Franke UK has named Neil Clark as managing director, succeeding Tracey Bamber on September 1.
Bamber has been with the company for three and a half years, and is leaving to join Zip as managing director for Europe and the Middle East.
Under her leadership Franke implemented a selective distribution system to protect the brand and launched its More in Store campaign to support independent retailers with business and promotional resources.
Bamber said: “It has been a great privilege to lead the Franke business in the UK and I am certain that under Neil’s stewardship the company will continue to go from strength to strength.
“Neil has a wealth of industry knowledge and experience and has been an integral part of the management team that has implemented our new policies and campaigns over the past three years. His appointment ensures a very strong succession and continuity for Franke in the UK.”
Clark has worked for the Franke Group for more than 10 years, having served as sales & marketing director at Carron Phoenix for eight years and for the past three as marketing director at Franke UK.
Of his new role, Clark said: “I am delighted to take over the baton from Tracey as managing director. We have worked together closely over the past three years reshaping the Franke brand and establishing firm foundations for it future growth. I am looking forward to building on the successes that the entire team, under Tracey’s leadership, has achieved and taking the company on to its next stage.”
