Record growth leads to expansion of Aico sales team

Published:  08 March, 2016

Aico has announced a significant expansion of its sales teams following record growth in 2015.

The company’s network of regional specification managers (RSMs) have been expanded to include Chris French for south east, Lewis Roberts for south London, Tina Mistry for north London and Dan Thomas for Wales and borders. Aico RSMs provide national coverage and support for housing associations and local authorities, and electrical contractors working for them, driving the specification of Aico alarms.

A more recent addition to the sales structure, Aico’s regional distribution managers (RDMs) have proved extremely effective in providing support for wholesalers in the form of training, education and in-branch merchandising. It has been strengthened through the addition of three new members: Tony Masson for Midlands and east, Carl Connelly for London and south east and Andrew Sturgess for South Wales and south west.

Aico’s sales support team, based at its head office in Oswestry, has also been expanded to provide support for all aspects of the sales operation and to work closely with the larger RSM and RDM teams.

Last, but not least, former RSM Stephen Paskell has been promoted to join James Cavan as national sales manager.
