Lords at Home (the independent housewares, cookware and DIY retailer) has announced the appointment of Tilak Patel as its new managing director. Tilak’s appointment is ‘the culmination of seven years of hard work’ with the London based retailer, where he has been ‘growing, learning and managing the day to day operations of the business.’
The appointment marks “the beginning of an exciting new chapter of our growing family company,” say founding sisters Rita and Rachna Dewan.
Tilak comments: “It’s a huge honour to have been appointed managing director of Lords at Home, especially at such an important and exciting time for the company. Lords at Home has grown significantly over the recent years, in people and estate and I’m confident that with our culture and values we can continue to build on this success and drive our strategic vision forward.”
Rita and Rachna enthuse: “This is well deserved and exciting opportunity for Tilak. Over the past seven years we have worked hard to create a brand that is relevant and innovative. Tilak has played a very important role in our growth and we look forward to creating new opportunities in the future.”
They add: “From all colleagues at Lords at Home, we would like to welcome Tilak Patel into his new role and wish him all the best moving forward.”
As an essential retailer (stocking hardware as well as homewares), Lords at Home started reopening its five stores (Westbourne Grove, Hampstead, Northcote Road, St Johns Wood and Chorleywood) during lockdown from April 3 onwards, much to the appreciation of local shoppers.
Rita acknowledges that local support for Lords at Home continues. She reflects: “We have seen a clear trend for shopping locally and are focussed on making sure that are looking after the needs of our customers. Convenience and quality at the right price!”
