Birstall-headquartered Easy Bathrooms, which supplies bathroom products and tiles to developers and trades people, has strengthened its sales team – specifically within its contracts department – to support its growing base of trade clients.
Paul Blanksby, who was formerly a manager of Easy Bathrooms’ Sheffield showroom; and Charlotte Wood, who has been a sales executive with the firm for a year; have both been promoted to area sales managers – joining Rob Holroyd, who has headed up the division since the business was founded in 2013.
The team, who together have 57 years of bathroom industry experience, now cover the whole of the UK. Easy Bathrooms has bolstered the contracts department on the back of a particularly strong trading year, which has seen the firm open ten stores within 12 months – including across Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.
Rob said: “These internal promotions will serve housebuilders and trade customers perfectly – both Paul and Charlotte are extremely knowledgeable about the industry, as well as specifically about Easy Bathrooms’ products.
“The opening of the showrooms means that our trade clients can use our stores to inspire their own clients – so it makes sense that, as the consumer side of the business grows, so does our reputation within the trade arena.”
Paul and Charlotte will support house builders, developers and plumbing contractors in particular, visiting clients’ building sites and head offices, as well as working at trade exhibitions.
Further appointments are expected to be made in the next 12 months, as Easy Bathrooms continues in its ambition to become the UK’s number-one specified brand.
