JT expands senior team
Mr Bell brings with him 20 years experience working within the plumbing and bathroom industry. He joins JT from Polypipe Building Products, where he held the position of distribution representative.

In his new role, Mr Bell will utilise his extensive experience in the plumbing and bathroom industry to develop and manage JT's southern accounts, looking after the daily needs of the distributors and building relationships at branch level with key retail and merchant partners, as well as independent bathroom showrooms.

Mr Bell takes over the position from Toby Drew, who, after more than three years as southern accounts manager at JT, has been promoted to national key accounts manager. Mr Drew will now manage and develop business with JT's larger national accounts, developing sales strategies and implementing them through the development of key industry relationships.

The expansion of the senior team comes at an exciting time of growth for JT, who has reported a 20% increase in output this year and will support further growth ambitions and advancements in services for its growing customer base.

Ian Bell said: "I'm delighted to be joining the JT team. JT has developed an excellent brand within the bathroom and plumbing industry and I am looking forward to an exciting new challenge which gets me back into the KBB sector, which I enjoy enormously."

JT managing director Paul Crossley commented: "We're thrilled to have on board Ian, a real asset to our team who brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience. The expansion of the team is extremely exciting for us as JT continues to expand."
