The Kitchen Bathroom Buying Group – KBBG – part of Der Kreis, has appointed Russell Sharpe as its new business manager for the North.

Sharpe has joined the company from Symphony Group, and has also previously worked at Moores Furniture Group, Crestwood and PJH Group, spending more than 10 years at the latter.

“Russell brings enormous strength to the business with his highly tuned knowledge of the independent kitchen and bathroom specialist market,” said KBBG managing director Bill Miller.

“Understanding the drive and needs of the discerning independent retailer is essential, while Russell’s well-honed retail business skills, and his strong background, will promote the progression and development of new and future business opportunities.”

Sharpe added: “There are a few challenging years ahead of us and there is no better time for independent kitchen specialists to join a buying group to support and drive their business.

“The KBBG has an established and healthy reputation in the UK, consistently achieving high performance and opportunities for the benefits of our independent kitchen specialists. Joining the KBBG brings much needed stability, choice and positivity for the independent retailer in the trading climate ahead.”
