Surfaces distributor International Decorative Surfaces – IDS – has expanded its marketing team with the appointments of Katie Walker and Andy Blank as marketing executive and web developer, respectively.

Walker has more than nine years of experience in marketing roles with experience in product launches, stand design and developing content for trade shows and exhibitions.

“What I’m looking forward to most is the challenge of applying my experience within a new market, both for my personal development and with a view to adding value by bringing new ideas to the table,” she said. “I’m really excited to be a part of such a professional team within a growing organisation.”

Blank has joined the company with 23 years of experience as a web developer. He will be responsible for securing a greater online presence for IDS as well as improving usability and e-commerce across the 14 websites managed by the company.

“I am really looking forward to help the business to develop its online presence and e-commerce capabilities, with the long-term vision of making IDS one of the UK’s digital leaders within the industry,” Blank said.

IDS managing director John Bagshaw added: “We’re delighted to welcome Katie and Andy to the IDS team. They both have a wealth of experience that I’m sure will be an asset to our growing business, helping IDS to build on and create long and profitable relationships with both our present and prospective customers in what is our 20th anniversary year.”
