Actis appoints new regional sales director

Published:  15 April, 2016

Insulation specialist Actis has promoted East Midlands area sales manager Jemma Harris to northern regional sales director.

Ms Harris is now in control of the growing sales operation in the North of England, North Wales, the East Midlands and the whole of Scotland.

Ms Harris and her counterpart in the southern region, Mark Cooper, say a 60% increase in the timber frame market and the imminent arrival of new EN markings governing the thermal efficiency of off site constructed buildings and an updated BS standard for park homes, is seeing a marked increase in sales of its three Hybrid products.

She said: “My role involves working with the area sales managers to build on our already great working relationships with distributors, architects and builders’ merchants across the northern half of the UK.

“I also need to ensure the team can brief customers on the technical benefits of each of our products, installation methods and the suitability of particular products for various projects and ensure they have all the support required to offer an exceptional service.”
