Matthew Handley has joined Imperial Bathrooms as its new supply chain manager. The appointment will boost the company’s operations team.
Handley graduated from the University of Wolverhampton with a Master of Business Administration degree and has worked in production management in the manufacturing sector for over 16 years.
Handley said: “I feel honoured to become part of such a vibrant and dynamic business at what is currently a hugely difficult time for so many in our sector. Accepting this new role is a well-executed move on my part, given the level of investment and growth in the company. As a hard-working and committed individual, I relish taking on new challenges.
“To have the opportunity to help boost profitability and maintain the company’s high standards with a focus on supply and demand, is going to be extremely rewarding for me and, despite lockdown, I aim to play my part now and moving forward.”
Graham Bucktrout, managing director at Imperial Bathrooms, said: “Matthew has taken on this role at an exciting time for Imperial Bathrooms, as we forge ahead with strengthening our offering and realising our collective goals for growth and expansion. In his previous role, Matt has demonstrated a highly developed strategic ability, as well an aptitude for analytical and practical thinking, which I have no doubt will prove invaluable to our supply chain.”
Creative director James Stevenson added: “Matthew joins us at a challenging time for businesses, as Covid-19 continues to place unprecedented demand on the economy and supply chains. However, that presents us with many opportunities to build relationships quickly and work closely with our valued customers, which, as an outgoing ‘people person’, will come naturally to Matthew. He has already shown himself to be a quick learner and great communicator. We are delighted to have him on board.”
