Penter appoints new national technical manager

Published:  11 March, 2015

Penter, the paving brand of Wienerberger, has appointed Pritesh Patel as its new national technical manager.

Mr Patel, who joined Wienerberger in late 2014, has extensive technical knowledge of the industry accrued from his experience as a civil engineer with a specialism within the field of sustainable drainage systems.

Prior to joining Wienerberger, Mr Patel worked as specification manager for Charcon (Aggregate Industries), a role that involved a broad range of responsibilities including presentations to architects and engineers alongside holding discussions surrounding project requirements to ensure products were correctly specified.

Mr Patel said: “I am very pleased to be joining Wienerberger’s accomplished Penter team. One thing, which particularly excites me about my new role, is that I will not only be providing technical support, I will also be able to develop and present CPDs. Wienerberger’s recently expanded pavers range offers customers a fantastic range of products and I look forward to working closely with our customers moving forward.”

Joanne Roberts, category marketing manager for Penter at Wienerberger, added: “We are delighted to have Pritesh join our team. He has worked in the construction industry for over 10 years and has a level of experience that few can match. This is an exciting time for the Penter brand and we are looking forward to growing the team further.”
