As part of its ongoing strategy to boost the specifier side of business, water heating specialist, Santon has appointed Simon Russell as head of specification.
Focusing solely on specification, Simon will work to further strengthen and forge new links with consultant engineers operating in the public health sector which is a key market for Santon. Working primarily in the London area, Simon will be responsible for co-ordinating overall specification work as well as overseeing the area managers' activities in this field. In addition, a further two posts are being created to support this initiative.
Commenting on his appointment, Simon said: "We understand that specification is an extremely important part of our business and I will be working to reinforce our presence among both the public health and mechanical engineering sectors. In addition to creating this role, we have become an industry member of the Society of Public Health Engineers (SoPHE) which aims to provide higher profile and focus for public health engineers within the Chartered Institute of Building Service Engineers.”
Spencer Clark, sales and marketing director of Santon, comments: "Having started out at Santon as business development manager 14 years ago, and more recently working as divisional sales manager, Simon's knowledge of the business is second to none. This inherent knowledge and his industry expertise put him in an excellent position to lead our specification activities.”
