Ex-Bathstore md Wayne Lysaght-Mason has been appointed as managing director of Ironmongery Direct.
Chris Bass, who has been with the company for 30 years, will take over as executive chairman.
Mr Bass said: “Wayne’s appointment is the next exciting phase in our development and we are delighted to have him on board. His experience with Bathstore will add huge strength to our management team, and his previous results speak for themselves. We are all extremely excited about the opportunities ahead.”
Mr Lysaght-Mason’s appointment follows the appointment of John Allan last year, previously md of Screwfix Direct, the UK’s largest direct supplier of trade tools and hardware products.
“This is a very exciting opportunity,” says Mr Lysaght-Mason, “I see huge potential for Ironmongery Direct in the current marketplace. My aim is to build the business with a strong customer focus so that Ironmongery Direct becomes the first point of call for all customers, and will help suppliers grow their business in partnership with us.”
