As general manager.
Sam Zalin will become e&s general manager, following his departure from Winning Appliances. The announcement, effective early December 2018, follows the promotion of Greg Lake to e&s executive director in April this year.
“We certainly wanted to take a careful and considered approach in finding the next general manager. Such a senior appointment in a unique family business required time and patience,” e&s joint managing director, Rob Sinclair said.
“Sam ticks all the boxes for the e&s business and is a proven performer in marketing and a buyer both locally and abroad and was ready to progress his career in a more senior role.
“This is a very important time in our family business as we continue to invest heavily in growing e&s. With a new operating system now implemented, a new 2,000 square metre head office facility adjoining our distribution centre late November this year and the opening of our ninth store in Preston in December, there has never been a more exciting time at e&s.
“Sam’s appointment strengthens what is already one of the most experienced teams in the industry, enabling us to continue to provide suppliers with a reliable business partner delivering consistent growth.
“My brother Mike and I would like to thank Greg for his service up to date as general manager and his continued support as executive director. Greg has overseen an incredible period of growth at e&s, from three to nine stores and 30 to 270 people. Greg remains at e&s to further guide growth and implement new business opportunities.”
