Bosch expands team with two new appointments

Published:  23 October, 2013

Following a sustained period of growth, Bosch Commercial and Industrial Heating, has boosted its sales presence in the commercial heating sector with two new appointments.

Bryan Marland joins the company as commercial technical manager for the South West region. With over seven years’ experience in the heating industry and having led successful high profile projects in the past, Bryan will be responsible for growing Bosch’s share of the commercial heating market within this region.

Having recently won the Pipe Center Supplier of the Year award, Bosch has appointed Lance Blackburn as national merchant sales manager to develop the existing relationships with merchant and business development managers. Mr Blackburn has worked for Bosch for over three years and will also continue his current role as commercial management and team co-ordinator.

In addition, Neil Stead has been promoted from his previous role as national merchant sales manager to commercial technical manager for the Midlands area.

Geoff Hobbs, business development director at Bosch Commercial & Industrial Heating, said: “As the Bosch brand goes from strength to strength in the commercial and industrial sector, it is imperative that we do not stand still and constantly look at ways to build on this momentum. These new appointments will help us to further strengthen the presence of the Bosch brand, not to mention offering our customers a wealth of technical expertise.

“We are excited about what the future has in store for the Bosch brand in the commercial and industrial heating sectors and wish both Bryan and Lance every success in their new roles.”
