Encon Insulation has expanded its dedicated merchant team with the appointment of Steve Clarke as regional sales director for the north of England and Scotland.

Unique in the industry, Encon Insulation formed its dedicated merchant team to offer tailored support for independents in this sector. Mr Clarke’s new role involves overall strategic management of the northern merchant team, helping ensure Encon Insulation continues to deliver market leading customer service as the business’s relationship with the merchant industry shows continued growth. With some 29 years experience within the building material and merchant sector, Mr Clarke brings an arsenal of skills and excellent understanding that will complement the company’s ambitious plans.

Speaking on his appointment, Mr Clarke, said: “It’s a wonderful opportunity to join Encon Insulation. The company has a huge product range that I will need to get to grips with, but through that process I will be expanding on my existing industry knowledge, which is something I’m looking forward to. A key facet of my new role will be building on existing relationships and forging new ones with merchants. This has always been something I have enjoyed and I can’t wait to get stuck in.”

Encon Insulation is a committed supporter of hundreds of merchants around the country and has built ‘Merchant Choice’ into its overall strategy. This determination to go the extra mile in building relationships helps add real value for merchants. Those who choose to work with the company will receive a commitment from Encon Insulation, which includes their own dedicated account manager and team, operational excellence and extensive technical advice.

Speaking on the campaign, Mr Clarke said: “Before I had officially applied for the job, I was already aware of how hard the company works to develop excellent relationships with merchants. The Choice initiative takes this a step further by providing independent merchants, and in turn, their customers, with fantastic support for their businesses. It’s an exciting time to be getting involved and I’m looking forward to building on this great work to take these relationships forward.”
