JP Distribution appoints new MD
West Yorkshire-based JP Distribution has announced the appointment of Graham Bucktrout as Managing Director, effective 1st May 2018.
He succeeds Tony Oates, who last November announced he would retire from the business in spring 2018.
Bucktrout has over 20 years’ experience in the industry, having worked for Lecico, Imperial, Jacuzzi UK and the Bernstein Group.
“He will be joining the business at a particularly exciting time following our first ever kbb show at the NEC in March,” commented Oates.
Speaking about his new appointment, Bucktrout said: “JP Distribution is a business I have known and worked with as a supply partner for a number of years and have always held their principles of excellence in customer service, supply and product availability in the highest regard. Tony has built an excellent team and supplier partnerships and I am looking forward to building on the JP Distribution success.”
“On behalf of the Board, we would like to wish Graham every success in his new role,” added Oates.
