Pete Manning has been appointed as national sales manager for Sika-Trocal.
He began his new role on November 1, stepping-up from the marketing manager’s position he held within Sika roofing.
“It’s incredibly exciting to be given this new challenge,” Pete said. “I’m looking forward to bringing some of my background experience and new ideas to the role, as well as being involved in product development and developing strong relationships.”
Having started his Sika career in 2005 within the marketing team for Liquid Plastics, Pete became marketing manager for the company’s roofing division in 2014.
Pete, whose new, field-based role involves supporting Sika-Trocal’s seven area technical managers, said: “It’s an ever-changing fast-paced market environment, so being as close to our customers as possible allows us to respond to these changes and give our customers exactly what they need. Sika-Trocal’s fantastic product range gives us a distinct advantage and we’re also fortunate to have a superb team of area managers who have built-up a brilliant long-term relationship with our customers. This is something we want to continue to nurture.”
