Following the appointment of Mark Hughes as sales director, Millbrook Beds has welcomed sales agent Nigel Hillier to the growing sales team as manager for Birmingham, South Wales and the South West.

Nigel has been in the industry for over 25 years, having worked in management and field sales at Slumberland, Sleepeezee, Gainsborough and Breasley. He currently works with Protect-a-Bed, New Design Headboards and Serene Furnishings.
