Italian porcelain surface manufacturer Laminam UK has appointed Leanne O’Connor as senior area manager for retail in the Northwest of England.
With a career spanning over a decade in the surfaces industry, she brings a wealth of experience to her new role.
Before joining Laminam UK, O’Connor served as national sales manager at Natural Stone Surfaces Ltd and, prior to that, held significant sales manager roles at Caeserstone.
She has also held roles at Shaw Stone Surfaces, where she developed her understanding of stone fabrication.
Starting her career in the industry at Cosentino, where she worked as senior client manager and area sales promoter, enabled her to hone skills in sales, management, and business development.
Commenting on her new position, Leanne O’Connor said: “I am incredibly excited to start my journey with Laminam UK, especially having previously worked with managing director, Gavin Shaw.
“Gavin’s enthusiasm for the Laminam product is truly infectious and the interest from customers is really strong. I look forward to contributing to the company’s growth and success in the UK market.”
Managing director of Laminam UK Gavin Shaw added: “At Laminam, we are committed to recruiting the best talent in the industry.
“Leanne’s extensive experience combined with her relationship skills, make her the ideal person to educate fabricators and kitchen design studios about the superior qualities of porcelain.
“We are excited to have her on board as we continue to demonstrate why porcelain is the best product for our times.”
Her appointment follows on from Laura Cullen named as senior area manager for retail.
