New area sales manager for Hansgrohe

Published:  27 January, 2012

ESHER: With immediate effect, Joby Hardman joins the 10-strong retail sales team at Hansgrohe as area sales manager.

From his base in Horsham, Mr Hardman is responsible for the affluent home county of Surrey and surrounding areas extending south to Portsmouth and as far north as Oxford.

With a career spanning almost 9 years in the bathroom industry, Mr Hardman already possesses good product knowledge and brings valuable insights to Hansgrohe from his roles within bathroom retail. He spent 4 years selling for a well-known bathroom franchise and then put this experience to good use managing an independent showroom in Horsham for three years.

Mr Hardman comments on his new role, “Having already had experience of selling Hansgrohe products to the end consumer, this is my dream job. They are a well organised and fantastic company to do business with, plus the products and customer service are such high quality that as a retailer you rarely have problems. I share similar values to Hansgrohe and am delighted to now be part of the team.”

Following in-house training in Esher and at the head office in Schiltach, Germany, Mr Hardman is already out on the road meeting customers and enjoying his new role.
