The Kitchen, Bathroom & Bedroom Specialists Association (Kbsa) has announced that at their December Board meeting, Tina Riley, National Chair Designate, was confirmed as the National Chair by a unanimous vote. Tina’s appointment is for the membership year ending 31st July 2015. Tina said ‘I am delighted to have been appointed as chair of the KBSA and look forward to the challenge of moving our association forward in our ever changing industry! My mission, with the help of the board, will be to strengthen our message to consumers and promote the many benefits of dealing with a KBSA independent specialist retailer. With our new website now producing consumer leads for members, it really is a no brainer for good specialists to join us now’.
Graham Ball, Chief Executive Officer, said ‘We are delighted that the Board confirmed Tina as our new Chair. I know she has some great ideas for getting more consumer awareness, and we will be working with her to develop our consumer franchise in 2015 with some exciting website development and social media plans. The facts that our consumer brochure warehouse trial is producing consumer leads for both our retail and corporate members is a fantastic benefit for them, and we will be rolling out this opportunity early in 2015’.
