RAVATHERM UK, the POLYFOAM™ XPS insulation manufacturer, has appointed a new Business Development Manager (BDM) for the South East as the company celebrates continued growth.
David Allsopp, from Kent, will work closely with contractors, distributors and specifiers to ensure their needs and demand for insulation solutions are met. With more than ten years of customer sales experience, David has worked in the building materials industry for eight years.
Previously working in specification-led sales roles at Marley Eternit and Fermacell, David also served as a branch manager, at Toolstation, within the Travis Perkins group.
In his new role at RAVATHERM UK, David will be mainly field-based, identifying and securing new opportunities and building relationships within the sector. He will also offer advice and guidance to customers on the benefits of specifying XPS insulation in a multitude of applications.
Speaking of his appointment, David said: “I’m really enjoying working with the RAVATHERM UK team. It is a fantastic company and what encouraged me to the role was how innovative the business is. RAVATHERM UK is always looking at ways to improve its service and will make investment where needed to ensure the needs of customers are met.
“This a great new challenge for me and I’m looking forward to working more closely with clients on specification-led new business, helping to develop Continuing Professional Development (CPDs) with the team and putting my knowledge and skills to best practice by providing a bespoke and personal experience for all our customers. With the ability to fill gaps currently within the market with a trusted, viable XPS solution which the Hartlepool plant has been manufacturing for more than 30 years, it’s an exciting time to join the team.”
David forms part of the national sales team at RAVATHERM UK, which is headed-up by national sales manager, Ian Exall.
Ian said: “Having David on board is a great asset to the business. With his knowledge and experience, he has already made a positive contribution to the team and we look forward to a successful future ahead.”
