UK manufacturer Kudos Shower Products has announced the appointment of Rob Stead as senior business development manager for the business.
Stead has over 30 years of experience in bathroom B2B sales and joins the company from Cavalier Marketing, where he was employed as national account manager.
In his new role, Stead will work with the company’s distributor partners, growing the number of Kudos retailers and displays, including its Premium Collection which includes the Ultimate10 enclosure.
Commenting on his new role, Rob Stead said: “I have always admired the quality of the Kudos showering products.
“They come with some great features and benefits and it’s always a bonus to sell products that are made here in the UK.
“There is a growing demand for local supply, not only to reduce transport costs and carbon footprint, but customers see the huge benefits of products designed with ease of installation for the UK bathroom and with locally held stock with great technical service from the Retail Support team.
“I am already receiving very positive feedback from customers.”
Sales and marketing director Nick Graville added: “We are delighted that Rob has joined the Kudos Sales team, he brings with him such a wealth of experience and product knowledge and we will benefit hugely from his established industry relationships too.”
Kudos Shower Products has been designing and manufacturing shower products at its Cumbria facility since 1999, with a portfolio that includes shower enclosures, shower trays, overbath screens and wetroom solutions.
