GROHE, the leading kitchen and bathroom brand, has announced the promotion of two staff members.
Former GROHE Field Service & Technical Manager Adam Logan has been promoted to the role of Training Manager for the UK following 5 years of service for the company, whilst previous GROHE Training Manger Chris Penney moves to an international role under the title of HQ Trainer Plumbing Schools EMENA.
Logan will be responsible for internal and external training of company stakeholders, overseeing GROHE‘s annual Truck Tour, and managing its UK plumbing schools – a new international programme GROHE will be implementing across Europe to invest in the next generation of plumbers.
Penney will be responsible for working with established charity partners and educational institutions in the field, to oversee the development of plumbing schools in the EMENA region.
‘Training is a top priority for GROHE and we are proud to be a world leader when it comes to working with installers,’ says Raj Mistry, Marketing Director at GROHE UK. ‘In 2019, we established a unique partnership with one of the leading regional vocational colleges in the country to provide training to the next generation of plumbers, and this appointment of Chris to a European role and Adam to oversee the UK further shows our ongoing commitment to training. Adam has outstanding field training and knowledge and will be a fantastic trainer for our installer partners. We as a company are currently exploring new and innovative ways to maintain our first-class standard of training through adapted online and virtual sessions and, in his newly appointed role, Adam will manage these challenging new developments with a view to ultimately make training more accessible going forward.’
