Having joined British manufacturer Kudos Shower Products as a retailer support manager, around two years’ ago, Russell Stewart has been promoted to area sales manager.
Covering the Midlands to Southeast region, he is part of a new team of area sales managers and been appointed to support national merchants and buying groups’ customers.
Commenting on his new Role, Russell Stewart said: “I am really pleased to have been promoted after just two years with the business and I’m excited about being a part of this new team.
“I may have only worked with Kudos since 2021, but I sold their products in my previous role for many years as showroom sales manager for a national merchant.
“Kudos offers a quality product and it’s great to see our parent business, the Ronal Group, investing in its growth.”
Sales & marketing director for Kudos Nick Graville added “Over the past four years our customers have been supported by our eight-strong retail support managers (RSMs), all of whom provide support to showrooms with technical and installation assistance.
“As we continue to grow there has clearly been a desire for us to provide more sales support, so in addition to the recent appointments for our independent showroom retailers we are building a team of merchant focused area sales managers, who will also work alongside the RSM, improving the depth of support and communication with our customer base.
“We are delighted that Russell Stewart has become part of this team.”
It follows on from the appointment of Simon Tate as area sales manager for the Midlands and Southwest of Englan.
