Domus Ventilation, part of the Polypipe group, has appointed two new members to the ever growing team: Russell Beardsworth becomes Specification Sales Manager for the Midlands / North England, and Megan Bennett is a new Senior Marketing Executive.

Beardsworth brings with him over 12 years’ experience in the construction sector, with the last five years directly in ventilation. His experience as both a Project and Key Account Manager at Xpelair and Vortice, and his work in developing the latter’s specification range, made him an ideal candidate for Domus Ventilation.

On his move to Domus Ventilation, Beardsworth stated: “This is an exciting opportunity for me to help further develop the specification side of the business amongst a specification team that is relatively new. I am looking forward to helping to grow the business, both in sales and product.

“Although I joined just before the first lockdown in March, which proved a challenging time for all, I’m now working on an exciting range of projects. Ventilation is something I feel passionate about and I get great satisfaction out of explaining the widespread benefits of ventilation and how mechanical ventilation system work.” 

Another newcomer to Domus Ventilation is Megan Bennett who has taken on the role of Senior Marketing Executive. 

Bennett may be new to the ventilation industry, but her marketing skills are tried and tested. She has spent the last eleven years in various marketing roles with Invacare, a leading manufacturer specialising in helping people with reduced function, mobility and disability, culminating in the post of EMEA Marketing Communications Specialist. 

On joining Domus Bennett stated: “Although I am new to this field, improving daily lives of others is an absolute passion of mine. During this difficult time, indoor air quality has never been so important. I’m excited to be joining such a renowned team within the industry.  With a passionate ever-growing team and upcoming product launches, 2021 is looking to be an exciting year!”

In addition to these two new appointments, Domus Ventilation has also announced the promotion of Dean Miranda from Contractor Sales Manager for London south central and the home counties to Specification Sales Manager. Miranda is now responsible for supporting consultants, design engineers and end user specifiers at the design stage of a project and providing product specification advice. This includes presenting CIBSE approved CPDs on mechanical ventilation principles and best practice.
