Bristan Group CEO Jeremy Ling, pictured, has stepped down from his role after nine years, with Darius Padler – currently vice president for Europe of parent company Masco Group – set to take on the role of acting CEO while a replacement is found.

“After nine years working with this fantastic business, the time has come for me to move on to new challenges,” said Ling. “I am immensely proud to have been part of Bristan Group.

“During my time with the company, we have managed to increase shareholder value, win numerous customer service awards and build a wonderful culture which has made Bristan Group a top 100 best UK company to work for.”

He added: “It has been a privilege to be a part of Bristan Group’s journey to become the market leader in taps and showers, a position which has been achieved by the design and engineering of products based on a true understanding of our customers.”

Padler said: “I’d like to thank Jeremy for his enormous contribution to the success of Bristan Group over the last nine years. Both our Bristan and Heritage Bathrooms brands have thrived under his leadership, and his efforts to further enhance our company culture will leave a lasting legacy.

“Masco is committed to supporting Bristan Group and the UK market, and in my interim role as CEO I will be ensuring the continuation of the company’s outstanding reputation, in particular our extraordinary dedication to customer service.”
