Warren Dow has been promoted to head of group procurement at ceramic tile maker and distributor Pilkington's Tiles Group in Manchester.

He heads all purchasing from raw materials for the group's own manufacturing operations to buying tiles for resale.

Dow oversees four buyers across the group's three companies: Pilkington's Tiles, Quiligotti Terrazzo and Quiligotti Access Flooring.

He joined Pilkington's 16 months ago after four years at BAE Systems. "The lessons learned at BAE were about processes," he said.

"The tile industry is still immature in terms of supply chain technologies and processes. BAE is process-orientated and I will bring my supplier development and partnership experience with me to my new senior role."

Dow said he will want to partner with major suppliers to bring quality services to clients.
