Electrical specialist appointment for Gibbs & Dandy

Published:  11 August, 2011

NOTTINGHAM: Gibbs & Dandy has appointed Kevin Draper to business development manager for Electrical Products, further enhancing its specialist offering.

Previously the branch manager for Gibbs & Dandy Northampton, Mr Draper is tasked with managing and developing its electrical product offering, with a view to increasing profitability and sales.

Initially based in Luton and Bedford, M Draper will eventually be looking to extend his electrical expertise across all Gibbs & Dandy branches, nationwide. Thanks to 35 years experience in the electrical and builders’ merchant industry, it is hoped that Kevin will add new depth of knowledge to an already growing electrical sector.

Speaking on his new position, Mr Draper said: “I have worked with Gibbs & Dandy all my working life and have always felt that our product and sector expertise sets us apart from traditional builders’ merchants. Therefore, I am delighted to have been given a role that allows me to take this to the next level, investing the time and resource into a challenging and ever-changing product area.

“I’m looking forward to working across the Gibbs & Dandy network to grow this area of the business. I’m also excited to start engaging with suppliers and expand our product offering in this area.”
