The Flex Group has appointed Martin Gill as the new MD for luxury bedroom furniture retailer, And So To Bed, with immediate effect.

Martin forged most of his career with the German luxury kitchen company Poggenpohl. Spending 10 years as UK MD, he was then promoted to head of global retail, later head of global sales and finally interim joint CEO. Most recently, Martin has been COO of the Canburg group, which owns Smallbone and Mark Wilkinson Furniture.

Looking to lead the brand into a new phase, Martin plans to focus on And So To Bed’s high quality product and service. He will be homing in on the brand’s strong core offering of mattresses, divans and bedsteads.

And So To Bed has 18 showrooms in the UK, with others in the Middle East, and Martin's work will go to further supporting all stores and sales channels, whilst growing the company.

And So To Bed is part of the Flex Bedding group, a leader in high-end bedding, with brands such as Vispring from the UK and Kluft and Aireloom from the US.

Martin comments: “I am thrilled to be joining And So To Bed at this exciting time in its development and I look forward to leading its continued success.”
