North West decorators merchant Bromborough Paint & Building Supplies Limited, acquired by Cairngorm Capital earlier this year, has appointed Stuart Slocombe as managing director.
Slocombe joins from Travis Perkins subsidiary, Benchmarx Kitchens & Joinery, where he was operations director with a remit for 150 branches nationwide. Between 2015 and 2019, he 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, Slocombe held senior strategic roles with Jewson and Cemex, devising best-in-class practices for pricing, sales, marketing, product development and category management in each.
He 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.
