Nix makes return with Gradi move
Former Wood Bros and Michael Tyler director Malcolm Nix is to return to the furniture industry after an 18 month sabbatical.
Nix will become the UK main agent for Tuscan upholstery company Gradi Living on 1 January, following the retirement of Graham Bilton in the autumn.
Nix joins having spent all his working life in the furniture industry with over 25 years experience at board level.
‘We see this as a strategic appointment as we continue to develop our retail base in the UK and develop products that are relevant and commercial for the UK market. We are already working with Malcolm to bring new designs forward to the market and to update our fabric and leather options,’ said the company.
‘Malcolm will work alongside and support the existing UK sales agents and we look forward to working with him as we develop our business in the UK.’
Earlier this year the company became a Minerva Furniture Group approved supplier.
