RAVATHERM UK has strengthened its sales team with the appointment of a new Business Development Manager for the West.
Philip Hodges joins from distributor SIG and brings more than 30 years’ experience of the construction industry to the POLYFOAM™ XPS insulation manufacturer.
Throughout his career, Philip has specialised in building materials, working in similar roles for companies including Kingspan and Knauf as well as manufacturers of offsite construction products.
In his new role, he will be responsible for raising awareness of the POLYFOAM XPS brand throughout the western region. With a focus on the distributor market, he will be building client relationships and identifying new opportunities in the sector to drive sales.
Speaking about his appointment, Philip said: “This is an exciting opportunity to boost both the profile of RAVATHERM UK and POLYFOAM XPS in a region where we see significant opportunities to grow the business.
“I’m looking forward to working with my contacts to help promote the benefits of XPS insulation and support RAVATHERM UK to increase its market share.”
Ian Exall, National Sales Manager for RAVATHERM UK, added: “We’re really pleased to welcome Philip to our team. His extensive sales experience, contacts and specialist knowledge of the construction industry will be instrumental in helping us to further strengthen our presence in the West.”
