Showering manufacturer Merlyn has appointed Tim Broadhurst, former operations director at Wolseley, as specification sales director.
Tasked with growing a team to meet the needs of the architecture and design community for residential, commercial and hospitality sectors, he will support the company’s drive to double its specification business over the next few years.
Broadhurst has spent 30 years working in the plumbing and heating industry, in roles which span operations, strategy, sales and marketing.
His appointment at Merlyn will see him combine his technical, commercial and supply chain knowledge.
Tim Broadhurst commented on his appointment: “I’m hugely passionate about making sure customer service is prioritised by sales leads and look forward to pulling a plan together to ensure we’re being as useful and inspirational as we can be for busy specifiers seeking solutions that achieve design and functionality of space.”
UK sales director for Merlyn Sean Collins added: “Tim brings a wealth of industry experience with him from Wolseley and Ideal Boilers, enabling him to continue making great strides for Merlyn with the housebuilder market, while honing in other sectors of interest without losing momentum.
“We are delighted to welcome Tim to the team.”
It follows on from Merlyn recently expanding its sales team with the appointment of two regional managers for the South and South East.
