KBSA's CEO, Graham Ball, has retired
Graham Ball, The Kitchen Bathroom Bedroom Specialists Association's CEO, has resigned from his position due to unforeseen family reasons after seven years of heading up the KBSA.
Tina Riley, KBSA National Chair said on Wednesday when the announcement was made: "It is with great sadness that we announce Graham's retirement, but I would like to take this opportunity of thanking Graham for all his hard work and tenacity.
During his role as CEO, he has steered the association through what has been a difficult time within the industry; myself and the rest of the board will continue to work with the KBSA team, Ruth Ward and Dawn Harlow to move the KBSA forward after our recent rebrand and new website launch.
"We wish Graham and his family all the best."
Malcolm Scott, the KBSA's corporate chairman for suppliers, added: "I have enjoyed working with Graham for many years during his career as sales director at De Dietrich and then as commercial director at Hotpoint before taking on the role of CEO at the KBSA.
"Graham has made an invaluable contribution to the association, leaving it in a much stronger position than when he joined. Our thoughts are with him.
"And as ever, thank you to our corporate members for their support."
