Franke UK has announced the appointment of Craig McIntyre as its new managing director.

With over two decades of service within the Franke Group, McIntyre brings a wealth of experience and a proven track record of success to his new role.

McIntyre first began working with Franke 22 years ago, and notably has led Franke South Africa for 11 years. He takes up the role of UK managing director, as well as heading up the NESSA Cluster organisation of Northern Europe, Sub-Saharan Africa, UK, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, The Netherlands and South Africa.

Speaking of his appointment, McIntyre comments: “I am proud and grateful for being given the opportunity to lead Franke UK and I’m looking forward to working with the company’s employees, customers and key stakeholders to develop meaningful long-term relationships.

“Having been with the Franke Group for over two decades, I am committed to leveraging my experience and insights to drive sustainable growth and profitability in the UK market.”

McIntyre’s appointment follows the departure of Neil Clark who recently stepped down from his role following more than 19 years of dedicated service, starting at Carron Phoenix before progressing to Franke UK as sales and marketing director and latterly holding an eight-year tenure as UK MD. Clark has left the business to take up the role of managing director at Sealy UK.

Franke believes that “with a clear vision, McIntyre aims to build upon Clark’s legacy by expanding Franke’s product categories and introducing innovative solutions to meet evolving customer needs.” McIntyre will now focus on “gaining a deep understanding of Franke UK’s employees, markets, customers and products, fostering continuous improvement, and investing in employee development for the long-term success of the business.”
