IronmongeryDirect Appoints New Managing Director

Leading specialist supplier and member of the Manutan Group, IronmongeryDirect, has appointed Dave Coulson as Managing Director.

Coulson brings a wealth of commercial, e-commerce, and leadership expertise to the role, having previously held the position of CEO at three well-known private equity-backed businesses and Group Marketing Director for an AIM-listed food group of seven companies.

Following 26 years working within the FMCG industry for blue chip companies such as McCain Foods, Nestlé and Kellogg’s, coupled with significant experience developing multi-channel branded businesses throughout his career, Dave has extensive knowledge and qualities that will prove invaluable to the company.

In recognition of his experience, Dave is also a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM).

Amidst a competitive market combined with the fast-moving world of e-commerce, Dave’s focus will be steering the company forward in meeting these challenges by helping IronmongeryDirect continue to evolve and grow as the leading supplier of ironmongery products in the UK.

Stepping into his new role, Dave said:

“I’m delighted to be joining IronmongeryDirect.

“From a business mindset, this is a fantastic opportunity to apply all the skills I’ve learned in my previous roles as CEO/Managing Director to an already successful, well-respected company.

“From a personal perspective, I was impressed with the strong team at IronmongeryDirect and the people-focused approach of Manutan Group, which seemed like a great fit.

“I’m delighted to become a permanent member of the team and I look forward to helping drive the company through its next phase of growth.”
