Graham Speed named new commercial director at Roman


Long-term employee promoted to lead sales team

Shower designer and manufacturer, Roman, has announced Graham Speed as its new commercial director.

Speed joined Roman 20 years ago and has worked in various positions within the company prior to his new appointment.

His story began in February 1999 when he joined as fabrication supervisor.

He then went on to be a production engineer and then a facilities engineer in Roman’s main manufacturing plant for British-made shower enclosures, wetroom panels and bath screens.

In 2005 he continued his development within Roman and became shower plant manager; then moved to the commercial department in 2007 as product manager, later becoming commercial manager and, finally, commercial director.

David Osborne, managing director of Roman, said: “I am thrilled to announce Graham Speed’s new appointment as commercial director, where he will continue to lead Roman’s commercial and R&D team and further develop our success within both the retail and project sectors.

There is nothing more rewarding than seeing home=grown talent flourish.”

Speed added: “I am excited to be taking on this new role in such a fast-growing British company and look forward to developing the team further.
