MHK welcomes sales manager to growing team
MHK Holding UK, a subsidiary of MHK, European buying group for independent kitchen, bathroom and bedroom retailers, has announced the appointment of Steve Woodworth as sales manager.
Steve will be responsible for working with UK independent kitchen retailers, advising them on the services that membership of MHK brings to empower them to grow and develop their business - including first class purchase prices and a range of innovative services.
Paul Wheeler, sales director for MHK UK says of the appointment: "We are delighted to welcome Steve to the team. His extensive knowledge and experience will make a significant contribution in our ability to reach out to many more independent retailers and tell them about the multiple benefits that membership of Europe's largest buying group brings".
Steve Woodworth has over 14 years' experience in the KBB sector, working predominantly with major kitchen appliance brands including Indesit, Liebherr and BSH Kitchen Division. During that time, he has worked with numerous kitchen retailers from all over the UK, building up an in-depth understanding of their business needs.
Steve says: "With the uncertainties currently being experienced by the UK retail markets, and the enormous competition offered by the multiple retailers, the time has never been better to explore the benefits of becoming part of a tremendously strong buying group - a group that can add value in numerous areas of the independent sector."
MHK Group AG was founded in 1980 by Hans Strothoff in Germany and is thriving in eight European countries. Today, over 2,700 trading companies, representing a turnover of over 5,550 billion euros, benefit from the services of the MHK Group throughout Europe. This makes it one of the leading co-operative groups for kitchen purchasing in Europe with its own subsidiaries in Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Spain and the UK.
