Onduline Building Products has restructured and strengthened its UK sales team, as it targets a growth in sales in both the professional construction and DIY sectors.

Greg Hissey, who has been with the company for seven years, has taken on the new role of technical sales manager for the southern region, covering London and the south east, South Wales, and the south west.

Formerly national sales manager for Onduline, Greg’s new position is centred around nurturing the company’s existing customer base, while also looking for opportunities in new markets.

Commenting on his new role, Greg said: “A key part of my new role is to develop new products and support their successful launch. My responsibilities extend to making sure our products are visible within the marketplace, ensuring that our customers, from merchants and specialist distributors to OEMs and contractors, have every potential of achieving sales growth.” 

Greg has been joined by newly appointed Sean Whiteside, technical sales manager for the northern region, covering the north of England, Scotland and Ireland, and Bethany Hall, a recent recruit as technical sales manager for the central region, covering the area from Anglesey across the west and east Midlands to East Anglia.

Sean has extensive experience in the roofing and building materials sector, having held a variety of technical, sales and business development manager roles.

He said he is “looking forward to offering the best service available” in order to build relationships with new and existing customers, while further increasing awareness of Onduline’s expanding product range.

Bethany has worked in the construction industry since 2013, including senior sales roles with a national roofing materials supplier.

She said she enjoys being customer facing, “initiating and developing relationships with customers of all types,” while working with colleagues as a team to build the brand.

Paul Duffy, managing director of Onduline Building Products, said that having strong relationships with customers has never been more important than in today’s unprecedented times. He said: “Focusing on defined regions will enable the new technical sales managers to work even more closely with customers, better understanding their needs, while taking the opportunity to bring new and innovative products to the marketplace.”
