New chair appointed at KBSA
The KBSA has announced the appointment of a new chair for retail members with Richard Hibbert taking over the role from Tina Riley. Tina has held the position for two years and is standing down to spend more time in her business, to prepare to celebrate its 50th anniversary and her 40th year in the business.
Richard owns a showroom, KSL in Suffolk; he has been in the industry for 15 years and an active KBSA board member for three years.
Tina comments: "It has been an honour to act as chair for the KBSA. As an Association we are continually evolving and I leave knowing that there is a strategy in place to ensure future growth and the development of services and support for the independent retailer.
"It is time for a younger generation to carry on the work we have started and I know that Richard's passion for the industry will stand us in good stead."
Acting KBSA CEO and consultant Uwe Hanneck says: "We are delighted to welcome Richard into the role of chair and would like to extend our thanks to Tina for her consistent hard work and commitment to the KBSA.
"We have a busy year planned with a schedule of new support documents being developed for members. An updated and revised set of terms and conditions will be published first, followed by other documentation later in the year."
