David Williamson has been appointed the new Sales Director for Wilo UK.
He joins Wilo from Whitecroft Lighting where he was Regional Sales Director for a leading UK manufacturer of light fittings and controls for healthcare, commercial, education and industrial applications. Joining Wilo brings his career full circle as he started his working life as a plumber before moving through a succession of senior sales roles.
“I’m enjoying being back in an industry I know and love,” he says. “You can’t beat dealing with wet stuff and for the geek in me, there’s nothing better than a well-engineered plantroom full of pipework, pumps and all things mechanical.”
A family man, outside of work, Williamson is a keen photographer, who hopes to be able to resume his hobby of flying light aircraft as his children get older.
“These are exciting times for Wilo in the UK,” says interim Managing Director Andy O’Brien. “There’s never been a better time to join the company and we’re delighted that David is joining us to spearhead the sales operation for us. His track record of team management and sales improvement are impressive and we look forward to working with him in the months and years ahead.”
