Leading bathroom product supplier HiB has welcomed Matthew Kinloch to its team, as the company’s new Area Sales Manager in Ireland.

Kinloch, who will be responsible for supporting retailers across Northern Ireland and parts of the Republic of Ireland, has worked with a number of high profile brands during his career, and brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the Irish branch of HiB’s sales team.

In a recent statement, HiB announced that Kinloch will play a vital role in enhancing its customer service and communication with retailers and showrooms across the industry. He is expected to work with both established accounts and new businesses as he builds new relationships for the company.

Commenting on his new role, which began during lockdown, Kinloch says: ‘Starting my new role as Area Sales Manager during lockdown has been unusual, but HiB has been fantastic in helping me establish relationships with existing retailers and showrooms and giving me the tools needed to hit the ground running. It has been very refreshing to learn new product details and discover why HiB has such a good reputation in the bathroom industry.

‘Everyone I have met within the company, whether in person or remotely via video conferencing, has been extremely friendly, accommodating and we are all pulling together in the same direction. It is like one big family.
