Prominent sanitaryware brand, Laufen, has strengthened its international presence further with the appointment of a new global project manager based in London.
Lee Breeds, who has eight years’ experience in the industry, is responsible for covering projects instigated in the UK by ensuring that architects and interior designers have all of the support and information they need.
Lee says: “To be given this opportunity to join a premium brand such as Laufen is a real honour. It is extraordinary to see the quality of work that goes into each and every single product. Seeing the realisation from conception to completion is truly remarkable, with every item produced having human interaction to ensure they adhere to our quality standard.”
Led by Ilker Hussein, the global projects team is strategically placed in New York, London, Dubai and Singapore to support projects around the world, and is supported by Laufen’s commercial team based at its head office in Switzerland.
Lee is one of three new global project managers to join the rapidly-expanding team. The other new starters are Basel-based Christian Schaefer, who is responsible for German-speaking territories, and Abu Dhabi-based Mohamed Barakat, who looks after UAE customers.
