Bathroom supplier One of One has appointed Michael Collins as southern sales manager, as the company looks to widen its reach across the South of England.
He has more than seven years’ experience in the bathroom sector, having worked for Bristan and Merlyn.
During his time at Bristan, Collins managed relationships with both national and independent merchants in Sussex, London and Essex.
His role as a regional sales manager at Merlyn saw him manage retailers across the entire south of the country.
As part of his new role, Collins will lead the drive to establish One of One’s two brands, Harrogate and Dawn, amongst independent merchants and retailers across the south.
His main priorities will be to secure new partners across key postal areas, as well as support the current customer base to achieve the business’ growth plans.
Speaking about his new position, Collins said: “Having worked in the bathroom industry for more than seven years, I feel passionate about delivering high-quality customer service, as well as building relationships with customers both old and new.
“To be part of growing two, high-quality bathrooms brands across the South of England is very exciting.
“One of One is a company that has some ambitious plans and I am looking forward to working with the team already in place to achieve our short and long-term goals.”
Commenting on Michael’s appointment, commercial director Shaun Corcoran said: “Following the appointment of our northern sales manager, Leon Brown, it’s great to now have Michael on-board, so we can offer a UK-wide sales service.
“Having been a colleague of Michael’s previously, I know what he is capable of achieving and his experience of managing relationships with both national and independent retailers is exactly what we need in order to establish One of One’s Harrogate and Dawn brands in the southern regions.
“Michael is a valuable addition to the team and I look forward to working with him again in order to widen the reach of our high-quality products.”
