PWS managing director (and not a former Beatle) John Lennon has left the kitchen manufacturing company, according to CEO and owner Mark Stephenson, who said he will be taking a “greater personal involvement” in the direction of the company following Lennon’s departure.

Lennon became managing director of PWS in October 2015, when he was promoted from the role of marketing and sales director at the company following the retirement of former managing director Andrew Elenor. At the time of his appointment to managing director, Lennon had been the company’s marketing and sales director for 12 years.

“John Lennon has left PWS, and looking to the future, I shall be taking a greater personal involvement in the direction of PWS, working closely with the wider board to evolve the business,” said Stephenson.

“We continue to invest in all areas of PWS – product, service and people – and as ever, all our development is aligned to what we know our trade customers and the market wants, led by strong insight, innovation and development. We have some very exciting plans for the year ahead, which I look forward to sharing with you in due course.”

PWS is a fifth generation family business and considered one of the market leaders in the design and supply of quality kitchen components and worksurfaces to manufacturers, retailers and installers alike. Product development and innovation continues to be the driving force behind the business and over the years PWS and its brands of 1909, Second Nature and Metris have carefully crafted out a large segment of the UK kitchen market by offering independent retailers an opportunity to sell a broad range of kitchens that cater for all styling preferences.
