Stuart Turner welcomes new MD and sees changes to sales team

Stuart Turner has welcomed new Managing Director, Richard Harden, and new Sales Director, Kevin Moore. The Stuart Turner sales team has also seen some changes, with Chris Lightfoot taking on a new role as National Sales Manager.

Richard Harden previously worked as Commercial Manager, Sales Manager and, more recently, Managing Director at Wilo Pumps. Now Managing Director at Stuart Turner, Richard aims to build on the company's success to date and expand the brand into new sectors.

Richard said: "Stuart Turner is far more than just a shower pump manufacturer - the company has grown significantly over recent years, and I am thrilled to have joined the team at such an exciting time. As a company, we are currently looking at new opportunities and I hope to see the brand expanding into new markets, particularly the commercial sector. My primary goal as Managing Director is to develop the Stuart Turner business, and the people that make Stuart Turner the company that it is."

Kevin Moore joined the Stuart Turner team at the start of 2019, taking on his role as Sales Director. Kevin has worked within the industry since the age of 16 - working for Wolseley plumbers merchant, before becoming Business Manager, Global Segment Portfolio Manager - Domestic Building Services and later National Business Developer Manager - OEM & Residential at Grundfos.

Within his role as Sales Director at Stuart Turner, Kevin is responsible for managing a team of five Stuart Turner sales representatives, covering Trade, OEM and Export and including new National Sales Manager Chris Lightfoot. Kevin has been a major driving force behind the recent structural changes within the Stuart Turner sales team - with each representative now allocated to specific clients, rather than product area. This provides customers with a dedicated Stuart Turner contact to support and assist at every stage of a project.

Chris Lightfoot joined the Stuart Turner team in 2018 as an Area Sales Manager, and has recently changed positions to become National Sales Manager for the company. Chris is responsible for developing existing customer relationships and expanding Stuart Turner's customer base, as well as a team of nine Area Sales Managers

Chris said: "Having worked in the industry for 15 years, Stuart Turner is a brand that I have come to know and trust. One of the most enjoyable aspects of my role as National Sales  Manager is speaking to and helping our varied customer base however I can."

Kevin added: "One of the first things that struck me about Stuart Turner was the passion that the team has for the company and its products. Everyone here is incredibly proud of the Stuart Turner brand - and I knew that I had to be a part of it. I see my role as an opportunity to assist Stuart Turner's growth and steer my team - and the wider company - towards new opportunities."
