Hansgrohe UK managing director Martin Mongan, pictured left, is stepping down from his role, with the company naming Jay Phillips, right, as his successor.

According to Hansgrohe, Mongan will be leaving the company at the end of March to “take on a new challenge outside the bathroom industry”. Phillips will take on the new role of UK managing director from the 1st April 2019.

Mongan joined Hansgrohe as national sales head in 2012 before being named managing director in July 2013. Phillips joined the company in 2012 as national sales manager for projects. He was then promoted to vice president of sales for global projects in September 2017.

“Jay brings extensive knowledge of both UK and global sales to the role of managing director and I am confident he will provide the leadership required to steer Hansgrohe on the next stage of its journey,” said Mongan.

Phillips added: “Hansgrohe UK is indebted to Martin for his contribution and leadership. We will work closely over the next two months during a smooth transition to ensure our clear strategy to strengthen and grow the business for both brands is realised. I am excited to lead the UK division and build on the great work already accomplished.”
