Russell Roof Tiles has strengthened its southern sales team to meet unprecedented growth and support customer demand across the mid counties and east of England.

Joining the pitched roofing manufacturer with more than three years’ experience, Iain Simmons has already gained invaluable knowledge working at SIG Roofing.

Having only launched its southern division in 2014, Russell Roof Tiles has seen its strongest boost in sales across the region. This is largely down to its investment in streamlining processes and new IT equipment to support customer demand. The team has also introduced new and products, which reflect local, natural materials in the area, including the popular Bute tile.

In addition, Iain’s specialist knowledge is crucial in supporting customers, to ensure their requirements are met efficiently. Iain is responsible for increasing the brand’s market share, as part of the manufacturer’s significant growth plans.

He said: “The opportunity for me to further support Russell Roof Tiles’ growing reputation within the mid counties and east of England is very exciting. I have already built strong relationships with customers, who have never benefitted from our services and products before.”

James Pendleton, regional sales director at Russell Roof Tiles, added: “At Russell Roof Tiles, we have always made significant steps to attract and retain the best staff and Iain is no exception.

“With considerable passion and unrivalled knowledge, Iain is a real asset, strengthening our successful Southern sales team. Working alongside our Southern Area Sales Manager, Michael Palmer, he will be pivotal in growing our presence and strong reputation as a leading manufacturer in the southern region.”
