New appointment at KBBG to support KBBG independent kitchen specialists
The Kitchen Bathroom Buying Group (KBBG), part of the Der Kreis, dedicated to supporting independent kitchen specialists, has appointed Louisa Cole to the newly created position of office support executive.
Louisa joins the company from Barclays Bank, where she was a regional bank manager. Appointed to support KBBG independent kitchen specialist members, Louisa brings a wealth of business knowledge and experience to assist members.
Based at the company's UK headquarters in Southampton, she will be the first point of contact for all members and will be available to guide and support members on pricing, products, purchasing, buying terms etc., as well as handle the company's social media presence.
"It is very exciting to join a young and energetic company that is so successful," says Louisa. "The organisation is admirable, having built a significant membership from a standing start, and it is a super time to join and support members.
"It will be incredibly interesting getting to know the members on the telephone and by email, and to finally meet and greet them all at the Annual Members' Meeting on 13th June 2016.
Bill Miller, KBBG's Managing Director, says: "We have made tremendous headway in our very short history and the opening of our UK head office in Southampton was evidence of our progress. To aid the expansion of our operation, and to give even greater support to our proactive independent kitchen specialist members, we have appointed Louisa. As well as co-ordinating the daily administration and working with our European office, Louisa's background will be much appreciated by members and will provide an invaluable service, assisting our members in achieving their business potential."
