British showering surround manufacturer Kudos has appointed Shaun Wells as retail support manager for its partners across the northeast of England.
He will be responsible for an area which runs from the Derbyshire border up to Durham.
Although new to the bathroom industry, Wells has many years of experience in the home improvement market, having been installations manager for a blinds business.
His new role will see him tasked with arming retailers in his area, selling Kudos products, with the required support to assist in the selling process.
In addition, all Kudos retail support managers across the country have installation experience.
They support retailers by installing displays, checking installed displays are working correctly, providing product and business updates, and answering technical product queries.
Sales and marketing director Nick Graville commented: “Shaun is proving to be a real asset to the business.
“His hands on approach and technical ability ensure our retail partners get all round support.”
Kudos has also recently expanded its customer service team, with the appointment of Gemma Burns as customer service manager.
