New director for Thomas Dudley

Published:  05 September, 2012

WEST MIDLANDS: Thomas Dudley has replaced Roy Seaward, who has retired, with Simon Fleet as sales and marketing director.

Mr Seaward has retired after 18 years with the company having helped to establish Thomas Dudley as one of the UK’s leading manufacturer of concealed WC cisterns alongside overseeing the launch of a number of new products and explosive growth in sales derived from bespoke engineering castings.

Simon Fleet joined Thomas Dudley in January and has now officially assumed overall control for the company’s sales and marketing activities. He previously held a number of senior roles at adhesives and sealants giant Bostik.

Mr Fleet's objectives will include launching Dudley’s new Resan range of vandal-resistant sanitaryware, expanding sales for the Electroflo range of electronic WC, urinal, tap and soap dispenser products and developing new business for the company’s rapidly evolving foundry division that recently announced a major £4.5 million investment in a new state-of-the-art moulding line.
