Kevin Hart has previously worked in a wide range of warehouse and distribution roles, including management and consultancy.

Leading shower enclosure brand Lakes has appointed a new Warehouse and Logistics Manager as it builds on recent growth and ambitious plans for the future.

Kevin Hart, who brings 40 years of warehouse and distribution experience to the role, has joined Lakes with the remit of developing the company’s warehouse management systems and strategies in order to maximise customer experience.

He said: “Lakes is an exciting company to be a part of right now, there’s so much work being done behind the scenes to make sure our customers are getting the best products and service possible so as a team, we are all moving in the same direction.

“My first meeting with the Directors made it clear to me that this was an open and honest working environment, where everyone is pulling together as a team and knows their role. Communication is so key to the success of a business, particularly from a logistical perspective,

“My role now is to ensure that the warehouse and logistics team are working as effectively and efficiently as possible, while supporting the business in its wider goals, such as ensuring we are working with sustainability in mind at all times.”

The Lakes board recently completed a Management Buy-Out of the business, as well as securing a £3.75 million funding facility in order to help meet rising customer demand and changing trends in bathroom and shower designs.
