Methven welcomes new sales director for the UK and Europe
Seeing in the New Year with a new appointment, Methven has welcomed Simon Woods to the team as sales director for the UK and Europe. Taking responsibility for the growth of the Methven and Deva brands across these markets and the management of the respective field and internal sales teams, Simon started his new position on 4th January.
Simon joins Methven from Twyford Bathrooms where he held the position of sales director and managed a multi sector, cross functional sales function for two and a half years. Prior to Twyford Bathrooms, Simon spent 10 years with Bostik as general manager sales where he managed a multi sector, multi branded sales function of 50 and was instrumental in the integration of three businesses into Bostik during a five-year acquisition trail.
In welcoming Simon to the company, Methven UK CEO Steve Lee says: "Simon joins us at a very exciting time of positive change and development. His experience, capabilities, creativity and passion are a great fit with our culture and ambition to become the leading global brand, recognised and loved worldwide for delivering superior, life-enhancing shower experiences. Simon brings a valuable and valued dimension to our business development."
Commenting on his appointment, Simon adds: "I am excited by the opportunity that the Methven brand has in the UK and European markets - building a world class leading shower brand led by innovation and quality of manufacture. There is certainly great potential for the Methven and Deva brands and I am particularly looking forward to the launch of the exclusive Methven brand at Ecobuild and ISH in March."
Simon's arrival follows the appointment of Steve Lee as Methven CEO for the UK, Europe and Middle East in November 2010 and a transfer of the Deva business to Methven UK in December 2010.
Methven will launch its exclusive range of premium showers and tapware for the UK and European markets at Ecobuild in London from 1st - 3rd March (stand S251) and ISH in Frankfurt, Germany from 15th - 19th March (stand 4.2 J36).
