Keylite Roof Windows has appointed John Magee as its new area sales manager for the Northwest of England and North-Mid Wales to help increase sales for northern builders’ merchants and contractors.
Having previously worked for electrical wholesaler, Rexel, John believes his sales experience from within a distributor will help him work alongside the builders’ merchants in his region, understanding their motivation, goals and processes for sales.
Commenting on his appointment, John said: “Despite inheriting an already successful sales district, I’m confident there are untouched areas, particularly in the north of England, that I’m keen to cultivate.
“When I was looking into Keylite it really felt like a ‘hand in glove’ type of fit for me – this is really an organisation I can see myself growing with.
“I believe it’s really important that I fully understand my products, my customers, my area and the Keylite brand in order to hit the ground running. Since joining Keylite at the end of December 2022, I’ve been busy getting out and about across the UK and Ireland with my fellow area sales managers (ASM), meeting with the technical and aftersales teams, and undergoing various training sessions.
“My aim is to take full advantage of the new lucrative deals made by our senior team with new merchants, whilst also delivering great account management to keep existing accounts engaged. Keylite have provided me with everything I need to both retain and grow the region. I can already tell it will be a great company to work for and I look forward to starting properly.”
