Lecico PLC, the wholly owned subsidiary of Lecico Group, has appointed Colin Sykes as chairman to the board. He takes over from Bill Acton who is retiring after over 10 years in the role. Bill is credited with leading the growth and modernisation of the business into its current market position.
Colin is member of the Lecico group board and has a wealth of bathroom experience. He was previously CEO of bathroom specialist Aqualisa, and has held senior management roles internationally at Ideal Standard and Sanitec. Colin will support the UK board in executing its strategy for growth alongside its ongoing commitment to investment in the UK organisation and new product development initiatives.
Antony Thompson, MD at Lecico Bathrooms, said: “We are obviously sad to see Bill go as he has played such a pivotal part in the growth of Lecico in recent years. He was inspirational and supportive to us all and we will miss him. We are however fortunate in securing Colin to the role of UK Chairman to carry on where Bill left off and help us drive our growth agenda to ensure we continue our strong performance in the UK market.”
