PTS has appointed Kelvin Stevens as its new managing director.
For the past four years Mr Stevens has been managing director of F & P Wholesale, also part of The BSS Group’s Domestic Division, which has seen a period of unprecedented growth in sales and profitability, the company said.
Prior to this role, he was regional MD of the Southern Region for PTS.
Mr Stevens replaces Alan Ball, who stepped down two weeks ago to pursue other interests.
Kelvin said: “This is a very exciting stage in PTS’ long and prestigious history and I’m looking forward to being part of its continued successes. Since its acquisition by The BSS Group plc in August 1999 there has been a tremendous amount of investment in people, our branch network and our IT infrastructure, all of which helps us achieve our aim of being our customers’ first choice because of excellent service. I’m looking forward to taking the business to the next level.”
Chief executive of The BSS Group plc, which owns PTS, Gavin Slark added: “Kelvin knows the PTS business incredibly well from his time here as a regional managing director and he has achieved great things at F&P, so we are all excited about the bright future ahead. With Kelvin’s skills and expertise we are confident that PTS will continue to move towards its aspiration of being the number one plumber’s merchant in the UK.”
