Russell Stewart joined Kudos Shower Products as a retailer support manager a little over two years ago. He has now been promoted to an area sales manager covering the Midlands to Southeast region.

Russell is now part of a new team of area sales managers for the business, and he has been appointed specifically to support National Merchants and Buying Groups customers in his area.

“I am really pleased to have been promoted after just two years with the business, and I’m excited about being a part of this new team.” Said Russell. “I may have only worked with Kudos since 2021, but I sold their products in my previous role for many years as showroom sales manager for a national merchant. Kudos offers a quality product, and it’s great to see our parent business, the Ronal Group, investing in its growth.”

Nick Graville, sales & marketing Director for Kudos, explains, “Over the past four years our customers have been supported by our 8 strong Retail Support Managers (RSM’s), all of whom provide support to showrooms with technical and installation assistance. As we continue to grow there has clearly been a desire for us to provide more sales support, so in addition to the recent appointments for our independent showroom retailers we are building a team of merchant focused area sales managers, who will also work alongside the RSM’s, improving the depth of support and communication with our customer base.  We are delighted that Russell Stewart has become part of this team.”

Kudos Shower Products Ltd has been designing and manufacturing shower products at their Cumbria facility since 1999.  Their portfolio includes shower enclosures, shower trays, over-bath screens and wet-room solutions sold via KBB showrooms and merchants across the UK.
