Litmus Furniture becomes Litmus & Son

Peter Hewitt, MD of Litmus Furniture, sole UK and Ireland agent for Wiemann bedroom furniture in the UK, ihas announced that his son Simon Hewitt has joined the company.

“I’m absolutely delighted and honoured that Simon has made the decision to join us and will be taking the company forward into the future," says Peter. "I am immensely proud of what we’ve achieved over the past 10 years, but I cannot go on forever!

“Our industry is changing and I am sure Simon’s FMCG background in senior sales and marketing positions in Procter & Gamble, Diageo and Red Bull will allow him to quickly integrate with the professionally-managed retailers."

Simon’s main initial focus will be to seek new areas of opportunities within the bedroom and other sectors of the industry. He joins just as Litmus takes on the new challenge of representing Spanish upholstery specialist Gamamobel in the UK.

Simon, who is based in south-west London, has taken on his own sales area in the South-east, from Kent, south of the Thames across to Dorset, in order to get to know the industry and its challenges at first hand. He will also work closely with Peter on national accounts.
