Bromborough Paint & Building Supplies Limited (Bromborough), the North West’s largest independent decorators merchant, is pleased to announce that it has appointed Stuart Slocombe as Managing Director.
Stuart is highly experienced within the building supplies distribution sector, with a proven track record of scaling multi-site businesses and growing market share. He joins from Travis Perkins subsidiary, Benchmarx Kitchens & Joinery, where he was Operations Director with a remit for 150 branches nationwide. Between 2015 and 2019, Stuart led Benchmarx’s expansion across the Northern and Western parts of the UK, opening 46 outlets over the period and transforming Benchmarx’s presence in the region to a strongly profitable position. Prior to Benchmarx, Stuart held senior strategic roles1 with Jewson and Cemex, devising best-in-class practices for pricing, sales, marketing, product development and category management in each.
Stuart joins Bromborough’s experienced leadership team, working with Guiseppe Alfonso, John Ferrington and Dan Peacock, to drive the business forward and capitalise on the opportunities to extend Bromborough’s geographic distribution with new branch openings and complementary acquisitions.
Stuart brings proven experience of branch development in the North West and best-in-class practices, which pair well with Guiseppe, John and Dan’s deep market knowledge and paint sector expertise. As Bromborough is primed to benefit from considerable investment following its recent partnership with Cairngorm Capital, this complementary experience will be instrumental in scaling the business and generating further growth, to ensure that Bromborough fulfils its potential.
