EJOT UK has appointed Gary Robson to a new role created as part of its strategy to continuously improve its service to customers and OEMs in the building envelope sector.
Taking up the position of new business development manager, Gary has worked at EJOT for 16 years, most recently as a sales engineer.
Based in his native Newcastle upon Tyne, he will initially support EJOT’s newly appointed regional sales engineers as they grow into their roles, whilst in the longer term his remit will include extending the company’s reach in new markets and strengthening EJOT’s relationships with major industry OEMs.
Gary’s extensive knowledge of roofing and cladding applications includes a number of specialist areas, such as rear ventilated or rainscreen facades and safety critical anchoring products, giving him a mix of expertise that will be ideally suited to his new role.
He is also a Construction Fixings Association certified tester and an associate member of the Institute of Roofing.
Richard Bowhay, sales manager for market unit construction at EJOT UK, said: “This is a really exciting time for EJOT and the next phase in the development of our UK sales team. We’re busy developing new team members for the future growth of the business which, in turn, will allow Gary’s experience and knowledge to be utilised in different ways as we partner with more of the roofing and cladding sector’s major players.”
