HOPPE (UK) has appointed Vicki Hawkes as business development manager for its national accounts.
Hawkes has more than 18 years’ experience working within the architectural ironmongery industry. She has previously worked for Union, Yale and Alpro Hardware, and joins HOPPE (UK) from Strand Hardware where she was area manager for just under two years.
She says: “As part of my role working with national accounts, I’ll be supporting builders’ merchants to help them find the right products for their customers; territory I’m very familiar with from past roles.
“HOPPE is a strong brand in the market, synonymous with quality, and I’m excited to be working with its products. I’ve worked with many of the HOPPE team and its suppliers in the past so I’m looking forward to not only reconnecting with people but also building lots of new relationships.”
