Joining the KWF team in March 2014 Peter has known of the business for many years as his father (Bill McNally) had worked there as a national sales representative selling fireplace equipment to over 600 shops up and down the country.
From his latter school years he fondly recounts going out with his father on customer calls (while on school holidays) for the day and seeing what the company meant to the customers he would call on.
His sister also worked for KWF and has always talked of the ethos and drive to deliver the best experience for customers. ‘It was always the element of service that set us apart’.
Peter had no hesitation in wanting to join the team and bring his experience and enthusiasm to take the company forward. He has worked hard to become the General Manager and oversees the majority of the day to day running of the showroom.
‘I’ve been in retail all my life starting at a well known camera shop but with the majority of my career so far working for another family run business running one of their Sony Centre stores, selling all the fun products that Sony sold. I now have fun selling all things fire!’
Bar a 10 month period working for a local newspaper (The Hampshire Chronicle) as a field sales representative, Peter has worked in retail through and through; ‘although incredibly demanding at times, I thrive on the opportunity to offer the highest level of service and do enjoy seeing a customer return praising the team and ultimately the lovely new stove or BBQ they purchased from us’.
Out of work Peter enjoys socialising and going out for evenings, experiences with his partner and spending time with his family (being one of six children there is never a dull moment!), ‘I enjoy a good film and I try to get out on my bike and do some photography whenever I get the chance – not to mention the odd gathering around one of the amazing Kingsworthy Foundry fire pits!’
Anytime you choose to visit Kingsworthy Foundry, Peter will surely be around to offer you a helping hand or book an appointment to discuss your next project with him.
