Methven has appointed its first UK head of marketing as it strives to cement its place within the UK and European market.

Simon Cornelius joins Methven, having worked previously in senior marketing roles at Aqualisa, where he was instrumental in the launch of the company’s first smart shower.

Mr Cornelius takes up his new role at an exciting time for Methven, as the company strengthens its UK distribution network, continues to expand into Europe and prepares to launch further new products.

Martin Walker, chief executive at Methven UK, said: “This appointment is a key one for us as we take huge strides forward in strengthening the Methven brand across the UK and Europe. Mr Cornelius’ experience in product design and marketing promises to open up many exciting possibilities and I’m confident that his passion for innovation will make him a valuable addition to the team.”
