Stroke-on-Trent-based appliance, sink and tap wholesaler Swift Electrical has appointed Steve Smith as its new area sales manager for the north east of England.

Smith has more than 25 years of experience in the industry, having previously worked as an area sales manager at Symphony Group, Allied Kingswood, Apex and Integral Surface Designs.

“I’m delighted to be joining Swift at such an exciting time,” he said. “The company is developing and redefining itself within the industry and I’m proud to be a part of it.”

Swift sales director Rob Griffin said: “Steve’s industry knowledge and experience makes him the ideal person to support our new and existing customers in the North East as we enter a new era for the company. We are delighted to welcome him to the team.”

In April, former BCG managing director Chris Honer wholly acquired Swift Electrical via his holding company Honer Holdings Limited, which is owned by Honer and his wife Sharon Honer.
