New board appointment

Window Widgets has promoted Heather Edwards to the newly created role of supply chain director, sitting alongside the current four owner-directors of the Gloucester-based business.

Having started within the business in February 2020 as supply chain manager, Heather faced a challenging start to her career with the business, given the global issues facing raw material supply and price.

Effective management of supply chains has never been so crucial and so this role reflects an increased importance of this fundamental business discipline, the company said.

Heather said: “I’m genuinely thrilled with the promotion onto the board of this great business. The culture here and work ethic is exemplary, and I will continue to build the professional and trusting relationships we have with suppliers. My job is to help make our buying patterns more effective for the benefit of the business and ultimately to help offer the best possible customer experience across the Window Widgets and The Residence Collection brands.”
