In his new role, Cuthill will be responsible for providing business support to Pronorm’s network of existing retailers across the region, while also looking to increase the brand’s presence.

He will work alongside the UK sales team Richard Turner, ASM for Central England, Jonathan Coulbeck, ASM for London and South and Don Ward responsible for nationwide retail training.

Commenting on his appointment, Cuthill said: ‘While I’m joining Pronorm at what is an unprecedented time for the kitchen industry, I am looking forward to continuing the good work of this established and well-regarded brand as we emerge from these challenges.’

Cuthill has a 22-year track record in sales and business development, and has gained significant experience in the kitchen sector over the past 15 years at Homestyle Kitchens and Bedrooms Ltd, Everest Home Improvements, Stone and Wolfe and most recently, Keller Kitchens.

‘My intention is to work alongside the existing team to support Pronorm’s retail partners across the UK and Ireland, while also continuing the great work done by Jason in this territory over many years’ he added.
