The company, based at Longridge, near Blackburn, is a provider of 17,000 products to 26,000 customers in the building, plumbing and decorating industries.
Shaun Smith joins as commercial director from his last post as sales director with UK Hardware Distribution, with 22 years in the industry under his belt, and is tasked with steering the company’s work with large corporate accounts.
Marcus Maher has been appointed as the new sales director in charge of a 25-strong sales team.
Carrie Barker has been brought on board as financial director, from a previous post as financial controller with distribution group Bunzl.
OBAS UK was formed in January 2008 after Norman Tenray acquired four failed businesses in the trade, bringing them together under the OBAS Group banner.
