Appliance specialist Caple has appointed Ian Garven as its new business development manager (BDM) for Scotland, taking on the role following BDM Allen Dove’s retirement.
Garven is responsible for promoting and selling Caple’s comprehensive portfolio of appliances, sinks and taps, and kitchen and bedroom furniture to retailers, builders’ merchants and electrical wholesalers in Scotland. He previously worked at Omega plc, where he has spent the past two years as kitchen furniture sales manager for Scotland with previous sales experience in the bathrooms industry.
Ian said: “Local decision making, which will have a fundamental impact on my area, is one of the main aspects of this new role I am looking forward to. I really want to make a difference as I explore different avenues to develop my area and customer base. With a refreshing approach, not only from our MD Danny Lay, and our regional manager, Amanda Atkins, but our head office too, I feel empowered to get on with the job in hand.”
Caple MD Danny Lay added: “Ian is a very welcome addition to our team. With his kitchens and bathrooms industry experience, I believe this will stand him in good stead for this role.”
