Scott Peden has been announced as managing director and commercial director of stair supplier TwoTwenty, which designs and manufactures bespoke timber staircases for new build homes, conversions and renovations.
Peden, who was TwoTwenty’s general manager, joined the company in 2006 and was instrumental in setting up its second factory in Kirkby Lonsdale, Lancashire. Prior to joining the firm he sold staircases for an independent builders’ merchant.
Ali Wright, founder and outgoing director of TwoTwenty, said: “There is no other individual who knows our values, products, services and staff better than Scott. He is a capable person who has the passion to be able to drive the business forward to reach its full potential.
“I’m sure he will relish this new role. He is an excellent ‘doer’ and can communicate with all levels of staff, suppliers, customers and partners.”
Peden added: “TwoTwenty’s reputation for hassle-free customer service and high-quality products is second to none. I am excited to lead our great team in building this reputation even further and driving the firm towards its ambitious growth goals.”
Jason Stain has also been promoted from sales manager to commercial director. He joined TwoTwenty in 2007 as a sales rep covering Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire, becoming sales manager in 2015 and heading up the company’s nationwide sales team.
He said: “My focus as commercial director will be to ensure TwoTwenty maintains its record growth rates, while staying loyal to our values of providing exceptional customer service at all times.”
Wright added: “As the business grows it is vital that we strengthen our team and achieving this through internal promotion ensures that we retain our core values. Jason has been manging the sales team for two years and knows our sales processes inside out. His new role will also see him close the loops in terms of internal administration.”
