Conex Bänninger is preparing for the start of an important growth year with the appointment of a new sales director and the restructuring of its senior sales personnel.

Dan Wild joins the company as business unit director for the UK and Ireland, overseeing the sales strategy for merchant, contractor and specification sectors, while existing director Bill Barlow will focus on the OEM and ACR sectors. The move will allow the business to focus more specifically on the demands of each sector, while maintaining and developing strong customer relationships.

Mr Wild brings highly relevant experience and knowledge to his new role, with more than fifteen years’ of business development experience working within the HVAC and building service industries.

He said: “My appointment comes at an important and exciting time for the company, with sales team re-focus enabling us to focus on the needs of each customer group in more detail.

“I am also excited to grow the team over the next six months, with additional sales team appointments within our business plan. This will enable us to deliver the best possible results for the company and our customers alike.”

Mr Barlow, who joined Conex Bänninger two years ago, will oversee a number of key projects over the next twelve months within the OEM and ACR sectors. This will include the introduction of a new OEM facility to accommodate the growing demand for bespoke production within the UK.

Mr Barlow said: “I am looking forward to the new challenge of helping Conex Bänninger develop its work across the OEM and refrigeration sectors. We have identified the importance and potential of the ACR market and our focus on product development points to significant growth within the sector. I am confident that the changes to the team will ensure an improved service for our customers and strong business results across all UK divisions.”
