A strong future for AKW following buyout
AKW, a leading provider of accessible shower and kitchen solutions, has announced the appointment of Nick Parsons as Group CEO and Ruth Ingledew as managing director, following a company buyout in March to Pennant Park.
Nick, who previously worked for AKW until 2011, has many years of experience managing businesses and he brings with him a wealth of industry and core customer links within the reduced mobility sector.
Ruth, who also previously worked for AKW until 2012 as marketing director has spent the past six years as CEO of myaware - a UK charity focusing on the condition of myasthenia. As managing director of AKW, Ruth will be looking to build the company's brand still further in the reduce mobility sector.
Ruth comments: "I am very pleased to be back at AKW and also to be playing a part in the next stage of the company's development as a leading provider of accessible bathroom, kitchen and daily living products. There are many short and long-term growth opportunities that we are exploring at present and we will of course continue to offer our unparalleled service and product offering to customers."
