Ridgeons has appointed Peter Diamant as head of plumbing, heating and sanitaryware. The new role was created to support the delivery of strategic growth in heating and plumbing.

With 25 years’ experience in the plumbing and heating sector, Mr Diamant’s previous roles include sales director for the Keston brand at Ideal Stelrad Group and director at Ribe Jernindustri, a Danish radiator company. He has achieved substantial sales growth, as well as commercial success in both UK and international markets, and is used to leading multiple teams where he uses coaching and development as a means of inspiration.

In his new role, Mr Diamant will be responsible for driving sales and profitability, as well as further positioning Ridgeons as a key supplier of plumbing, heating and sanitaryware materials to the plumbing and heating engineer. He plans to provide strategic direction on how Ridgeons supplies its own branch network and, by proposing a new distribution service, hopes to demonstrate a positive impact on how Ridgeons serves its growing customer base.

Managing director Angela Rushforth said: “The new appointment of Peter Diamant as head of plumbing, heating and sanitaryware marks an exciting new chapter for Ridgeons, as we invest in the business and develop our offering. This newly created role reflects our growing commitment to providing innovative products and excellent customer service.”
