Actis has appointed Jerrell Paton as its new East of England area sales manager.
Paton will help increase awareness of the benefits of the Actis Hybrid range of insulation and insulating membrane products. He aims to strengthen existing relationships with merchants and distributors and forge new ones throughout the East of England. A key part of his role will be running training sessions and trade days for their sales teams and providing educational materials about Actis’ products.
Jerrell Paton said: “I enjoy building a rapport with people and am looking forward to extending my reach to merchants who haven’t yet had the benefit of finding out how Actis products can help their customers.
“Colleagues in other parts of the UK tell me merchants who’ve taken part in our training sessions have found them very helpful.
“Perhaps the main thing which surprises merchants and distributors is the fact that as well as being thermally efficient – which should go without saying – the products are so quick, easy and clean to use. These seem to the aspects which really catch their imagination and are big bonuses for their customers.
“Builders who haven’t had the advantage of knowing about the products may otherwise carry on using solid insulation with all the dust and aggravation that entails.”
Regional sales director for the South East, Steve Ellis, who formerly combined his directorial role with managing sales in the East of the country, will now be able to devote more time to growing the business in that corner of England.
Steve Ellis added: “It’s brilliant to have Jerrell on the team.”
“He’s very personable and hard working – both important qualities for someone taking on a busy sales role.”
