Coram UK has announced that UK MD John Blackburn will be leaving the company in November to seek a fresh challenge in the sector. He will be succeeded by Steve Huntly, pictured, who has been with the business in the role of group sales director since 2017, and has been involved in the design and execution of plans for a comprehensive restructure of the UK sales division.
Blackburn joined Coram UK as MD in 2014 having been MD for three years at Twyford. He successfully steered Coram's UK brand, which include Impey wetrooms and Coram Showers, through a period of growth and adjustment.
Blackburn said: “I have enjoyed my time at Coram UK immensely and would like to thank my colleagues for their support and hard work over recent years.
“My decision to step back is motivated by my desire for a new challenge and to build upon the lessons learnt in growing both UK brands across multiple markets.”
Said Huntly: “I am incredibly excited to step into a new challenge at Coram Group and am looking forward to driving sustainable growth and progress across our whole showering solutions portfolio.
“It’s an extremely exciting time for our group, as we focus on significant new UK product launches and partnerships with our sister brands from across Europe.
“I would like to offer my sincerest good wishes to John who will be greatly missed by all at Coram UK.”
