Abode has welcomed Karen Parker as its newly appointed northern sales manager, covering Yorkshire & the Humber, North West of England and North Wales.
Based in Lancashire, Karen brings with her a wealth of experience within the brassware and bathroom manufacturing industry. Her previous experience includes a series of managerial roles with leading industry brands including Beko Appliances, Smeg UK, Wolseley, Triflow Concepts, and Bathroom Brands.
Her role as sales manager will see Karen responsible for part of the Northern Region, working alongside Victoria Hatton who joined the company last year. In doing so, the northern team is now able to split this high volume area in two. Together, they will be responsible for maintaining current sales programmes within the business, while proactively seeking new opportunities to maximise sales and increase dialogue between the brand, and new and existing customers across the UK.
Peter Phelan, sales director at Abode, said: “I’m delighted to announce the appointment of Karen Parker, adding a new line of communication and sales presence for our customers in the north. Her career to date has an established pedigree and lends itself perfectly to our portfolio of products where quality of design is at the heart of everything we do. I am therefore really pleased to welcome Karen to the company and look forward to seeing her explore, grow, and increase customer sales.”
