David Upperton joins the team from Aqualisa as Sales Director for Retail and Trade, bringing more than 25 years of experience to the role. He will be responsible for overseeing further growth for Geberit in the retail sector as it looks to bolster its support to retailers, distribution partners and buying groups.

David said: ‘Geberit is one of the industry’s leading bathroom manufacturers and this is an exciting time to be joining the team. We’ll be working more closely with independent merchants, distribution and bathroom showrooms and looking at how we can boost our support to these key customers.’

Geberit has also appointed Phillip Conroy as National Key Account manager. Conroy, who has previously held roles at Kohler Mira and Just Trays, will have responsibility for Geberit’s independent merchant channel.
