Fast-growing homewares design and distribution brand Joseph Joseph has appointed Alistair Langan as group financial director.

He joined the London headquartered business last month, having previously spent 10 years in senior roles at Sony Mobile Communications, latterly as global commercial finance director.

Jason Smith, finance director at Joseph Joseph since January 2010, is no longer on the director register according to a Companies House filing.

Joseph Joseph, created by twin brothers Antony and Richard Joseph in 2003, designs and sells contemporary kitchenware goods and has almost doubled annual sales to around £42m in the past five years. It made over £10m pre-tax profit in 2014–15.
