AKW restructures management after buyout

Following a company buyout in March to Pennant Park, AKW has appointed Nick Parsons as group chief executive and Ruth Ingledew as managing director.

The provider of accessible shower and kitchen solutions, has welcomed back Parsons, who previously worked for AKW until 2011. He has experience and industry knowledge as well as customer links within the reduced mobility sector.

Ingledew, who also previously worked for AKW until 2012 as marketing director, has spent the past six years as CEO of Myaware, a UK charity focusing on the condition of myasthenia.  As managing director of AKW, Ingledew will be looking to build the company’s brand still further in the reduce mobility sector.

Ingledew said: “I am very pleased to be back at AKW and also to be playing a part in the next stage of the company’s development as a leading provider of accessible bathroom, kitchen and daily living products. There are many short- and long-term growth opportunities that we are exploring at present and we will, of course, continue to offer our unparalleled service and product offering to customers moving forwards.”
