New faces at Alpha

Published:  09 October, 2017

Alpha Heating Innovation has welcomed three more members to its sales team, with Anne Wraith in the North East, Colin Chappell in the midlands and South Wales and Lee Mumford working in parts of London.

Anne brings with her a varied career in the heating and energy industry. Most recently before Alpha, she worked for a commercial boiler manufacturer, focusing on consultants and specifiers mainly. Prior to this, Anne has worked for energy providers and also has extensive experience with local authorities and social landlords, which she developed during her time at Mark Group.

Anne commented on her new role, said: “The variation of the technical sales role is what attracted me to Alpha initially. I liked the idea of working with both merchants and installers, giving me a chance to see both angles. I’ve been really enjoying the job so far.”

Colin joined Alpha after another employee had told him about the role. Alpha’s Neil Saunders had previously worked with Colin while he was at City Plumbing and being familiar with the products, he was keen to apply. Prior to this, Colin sold plumbing tools through merchants while at Dickie Dyer, where he worked for four years.

Colin brings with him over 18 years of experience in various industries worldwide, primarily selling technical instruments and pressure metres.

Colin said: “I really like that Alpha has a family owned quality to its business. Even though it’s a well-known brand, it feels like a supportive environment and I was keen to be a part of a company with this type of culture.”

Finally, Lee has joined Alpha, bringing with him experience of working with both boiler manufacturers and plumber’s merchants. Most recently, Lee worked in a similar role as a sales manager for a manufacturer of both commercial and domestic boilers.

Before this, Lee had been working for Plumbase since the age of 15, working his way up to Branch Manager over the years. Since then, he has managed branches in Croydon and Stockwell.

Lee said: “I wanted to work for Alpha because I’d heard about the new boiler it was bringing to the market. The E-Tec is the smallest combi in the range and yet it still provides exceptional hot water outputs. I had also heard good things about the company from installers and other Alpha employees so I’m very happy to have now joined the team myself!”
