AKW, a provider of accessible shower and kitchen solutions, has appointed a new managing director, who like the recently-appointed CEO, formerly worked at the company.
Managing director Ruth Ingledew was formerly AKW’s marketing director up until 2012, after which she spent six years as CEO of myaware, a UK charity focusing on the condition of myasthenia.
Nick Parsons, who previously worked for AKW until 2011, has also joined as Group CEO following a company buyout in March to Pennant Park.
Parsons has many years of experience managing businesses and he brings with him a wealth of industry and core customer links within the reduced mobility sector.
Ingledew will be looking to build the company’s brand still further in the mobility sector.
She commented: “I am very pleased to be back at AKW and also to be playing a part in the next stage of the company’s development as a leading provider of accessible bathroom, kitchen and daily living products.
“There are many short and long-term growth opportunities that we are exploring at present and we will of course continue to offer our unparalleled service and product offering to customers moving forwards.”
