Freefoam Building Products has appointed Richard Jackson as its new UK sales director after working for the company for 16 years as national sales manager.

The company’s growth enabled the senior management team to introduce the new post to meet the business needs into the future.

What’s more, Richard has also worked in the industry for over 25 years in sales and business development roles and has built up an exceptional level of knowledge, expertise and commercial acumen.

Whilst at Freefoam, he has continuously developed and grown the evolving sales team in line with needs of the business. Alongside the sales growth, Richard has been the driving force behind the diversification and development of the customer base, with the continuous support of existing customers and the introduction of new customers, both independent stockists and national merchants.

Richard said: “I’m looking forward to working with our sales team and customers to maximise market opportunities and ensure Freefoam stays at the forefront of the PVC roofline and cladding market.”

Aidan Harte, managing director of Freefoam, added: “Our sales in the UK have consistently grown year-on-year, and Richard has been a key part of that. The appointment of Richard to the role of sales director will help Freefoam achieve the ambitious and challenging strategic sales goals we have set ourselves.”
