InSinkErator appoints new contracts manager, UK
Elaine Mead has been appointed Contracts Manager, UK, at InSinkErator, the world's largest manufacturer of food waste disposers and a leading brand of steaming hot water taps. Elaine, who has worked for the company for 15 months, was promoted by Managing Director, Europe, Ashley Munden, in April 2013 with a specific brief to drive forward and expand the contracts side of the business.
Elaine, who reports to Kevin Carr, UK Sales Manager, previously worked as Kitchen Retail Manager supporting retailers in and around London and promoting the InSinkErator product range on behalf of the distributors.
"With over 25 years in the industry, Elaine is well qualified for the Contracts Manager position with her depth of knowledge and experience of the market and the business," says Ashley Munden.
"She will be instrumental in spearheading our continuing aim to be the preferred sink appliance brand for UK house builders."
Elaine Mead says of her promotion: "This is a significant and very exciting opportunity, as the UK's house building market continues to grow.
"Developers are looking for outstanding products that give their new-build properties an added edge. InSinkErator is an aspirational and world leading brand, with strong credentials in environmental sustainability - a key factor in the design and build of all new homes.
"My main objective now is to ensure InSinkErator sink appliances are featured in as many new housing developments as possible."
