Previously a business markets director at British Gas, Stuart was involved in developing its business to business division, therefore gaining experience of managing customers from both independent companies and complex corporations.
The new role aims to prioritise the development of new services and products, whilst ensuring the current level of customer service is maintained across the extensive network of both merchants.
Stuart said: “The energy industry is closely aligned with heating and plumbing as service and availability are king. This is particularly true in the spares market where having an extensive product portfolio and being able to back it up with specialist support are crucial to installers providing a complete and thorough service to their own customers.
“As the Group’s plumbing and heating division is expanding rapidly, I’m looking forward to putting a number of new initiatives in action and evolving the product range further for both PTS and CPS customers.”
