Vaughan, who was brand director of KBB Birmingham and May Design Series, was praised by UBM for building up ‘a credible and hard-working team who has worked tirelessly to ensure the success of both exhibitions’.
Vaughan, who has worked for UBM for nearly 18 years, said: “I am proud to say I am leaving these events in fantastic shape and under the capable hand of the core team. I am certain both shows will only grow from strength to strength as the market improves.”
UBM group director Andy Stuart said he will be working with sales director Jon Johnston over the coming months on KBB Birmingham 2016, following Vaughan’s departure.
He added: “We are sorry to see Andy go, but are grateful for his commitment and enthusiasm to the KBB brand over the years. The preparations for KBB Birmingham 2016 are going better than we ever could have hoped for with brands such as Franke, Blanco, Ideal Standard, Roca, Sensio, Leicht, Nolte and RAK Ceramics signed into the show, all left in the safe hands of the team Andy has built.”
