Contemporary German kitchen manufacturer Pronorm has promoted Richard Turner to the position of UK National Sales Manager.
Turner has worked for Pronorm for 14 years as Area Sales Manager for Central England, covering Worcester to the M62 corridor. He will retain responsibility for his territory, while also taking on overall responsibility for sales in the UK and Ireland and managing the sales team of Don Ward, Jonathan Coulbeck and Chris Cuthill.
Turner replaces Jason Grinton, who retired at the end of May after 32 years with Pronorm. Since 2003, the company has operated as a solus brand in the UK and during this time, Grinton had overall responsibility for growing the company’s dealer network and reputation in the market.
Commenting on his appointment, Turner said: ‘It’s a privilege and a challenge to be taking on this national sales role at this time. Jason has been a fantastic mentor and colleague and I intend to carry on his successful stewardship of the brand.
‘Pronorm is fully committed to the UK market, we have been here for over 30 years and we have solid foundations from which to support our UK dealers. I am looking forward to working with the UK sales team and our retail partners as we navigate a path through the current challenges.’
