Plumbfix has made two key internal appointments during a busy period of continued development and expansion.

Stuart Livingstone has been appointed to head of retail. He brings 10 years’ worth of senior retail experience with him, having previously worked as retail director at American Golf and Kwik Fit.

Arran Leighton has been appointed to national trade plus manager and brings 20 years’ experience with him, with past roles at Wickes and Focus, putting his vast knowledge of the business to great use at Plumbfix.

In their new roles, both will focus on shaping the Plumbfix offering and ensuring that the brand continues to evolve to meet the ever-changing needs of qualified plumbing and heating professionals. They will also be responsible for overseeing the performance of the brand’s 270 ‘exclusive to plumbers’ counters across the UK, as well as further developing Plumbfix’s customer experience through the Click & Collect service.

Mr Livingstone said: “I am delighted to join the Plumbfix team. As retail is my passion, Plumbfix has impressed me with the speed at which it has evolved its brand to meet its customers’ needs. I am looking forward to getting stuck in and helping to develop and grow the business even further.”

Mr Leighton added: “Plumbfix has seen extensive growth over the past year, and I can’t wait to develop the offering even further. Focusing on operational delivery will be my key priority, delivering an exceptional shopping experience to our customers.”

Sandra Everett, senior marketing manager at Plumbfix, concluded: “Working closely with both the store and marketing teams, and their knowledge of the business as a whole, we have no doubt that their wealth of experience will help us to provide an even faster, supportive and more convenient service to busy plumbing and heating professionals across the UK, both online and across our network of ‘exclusive to plumbers’ counters.”
