Stabilo welcomes Shahbaz Khan as market director UK & Ireland

Stationery brand Stabilo has announced the appointment of former Clementoni country manager Shahbaz Khan as its new market director UK & Ireland.

In his new role, Shahbaz will head up Stabilo’s UK & Ireland office and will be focused on the brand’s distribution channels, working closely with the sales team to drive growth and refocus the business on key target areas.

Shahbaz has a wealth of experience from his previous role as country manager at Clementoni, where he oversaw the company’s double-digit growth as Clementoni became a preferred supplier in the UK for infant and pre-school toys, developing the brand from start-up to an established player in the toy market.

Prior to joining Clementoni, Shahbaz was a toy buyer for Argos and his experience as a buyer will help support Stabilo as it continues to target new demographics with products which include the iconic Boss Original highlighter.
