Merlyn has appointed two regional sales managers to support the growth of its Southern division. 

Reporting directly into the Southern sales director, the new team will manage retail, merchant, and specification customers across the South and South East. They will be supporting customers with product training, market insights and showroom display, with a specific focus on the Arysto Collection of shower enclosures. 

With six years’ experience in the bathroom retail sector, Karl Hilldrup joins Merlyn from Vado, where he worked as area sales manager. In his new role as regional sales manager, Karl will focus on developing and building relationships with new and existing customers in the South.

Joining Karl is Kate Delaney, who brings a wealth of industry experience, having worked with leading bathroom brands since 2001. As regional sales manager for the South East, Kate is responsible for expanding and growing sales opportunities and raising brand awareness across the area.

Merlyn Southern UK sales director, Gary Hildrow, said: “The appointment of two regional sales managers is instrumental in ensuring we continue to support the growing market and strengthen relationships with our key customers. 

“Karl and Kate possess the in-depth knowledge and industry experience that our customers have come to expect from Merlyn, which ensures we retain our reputation as a world-class and award-winning supplier.” 

Headquartered in Kilkenny, Ireland, Merlyn supplies shower enclosures, shower trays and bath screens for the residential, commercial and hospitality sectors in the UK and Ireland.
