Hörmann ’s current status as the UK’s leading door manufacturer has been earned, not only through its provision of innovative products, but also the high levels of service offered by its dedicated and highly trained members of staff. To help retain its position and continue building awareness throughout the UK, the Leicestershire-based manufacturer has announced that it has appointed Kieran Perry as national field sales manager.
Kieran’s appointment comes following the retirement announcement of sales director, Alan Jenkins, who has worked for Hörmann for over 14 years. In his new role, Kieran will be responsible for leading the field sales team, consisting of six area sales managers and three project managers, each responsible for a region of the UK. To ensure that he has visibility over all projects, Kieran’s role is field based, which differs slightly from that of his predecessor, but ensures he is able to spend more time on-site with both colleagues and customers. As well as this, Kieran will be utilising his experience in sales and marketing management, to reinforce company values and unify brand understanding.
Kieran began his career in sales and marketing, joining a family company shortly after leaving college. He progressed from here into management roles in both National and International companies, gaining a wide and varied commercial experience along the way.
Bringing a wealth of experience and knowledge to both the company and role, Hörmann believes that Kieran’s appointment will help drive awareness and increase market share in the UK, as managing director, David Newcombe, confirms: “The appointment of Kieran is a really exciting one for us and we are delighted to be able to welcome him to the team. Having gained a vast amount of sales experience in a number of different sectors, means that Kieran will be able to manage our field sales team with a fresh perspective and bring in new ideas to help grow the business.”
On taking his appointment, Kieran commented: “For many years, Hörmann has been the industry front-runner for garage and industrial doors. Having worked for leading brands in several different industries, I believed that my knowledge and experience would bring something different to this role. Hörmann has an outstanding reputation, a strong international structure and an extremely proactive company ethos, so I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to help make it even better.”
