Conex Bänninger has strengthened its UK key account and specification sales team with two senior appointments.

Stuart White, who has worked in the company’s specification team for a number of years, has been promoted to the role of national key account director. Mr White will focus his efforts on maintaining and developing key customer relationships within the merchant sector.

The company has also recruited experienced industry professional Paul Dryden, who takes up the position of regional specification sales manager for the South West and South Wales.

Bill Barlow, Conex Bänninger’s UK business unit director, said: “The appointments of Stuart and Paul highlights our commitment to invest and develop the UK market, as well as create “pull through” for the Conex Bänninger brand. Both have a wealth of experience in our industry and a proven track record of delivering strong results while developing excellent relationships with customers in this sector. I wish them both every success in their new roles.”

Mr Dryden will be instrumental in developing and delivering Conex Bänninger’s business strategy, enhancing the company’s product offering and increasing its share of the specification market. This will include working with existing customers and looking at new opportunities to grow the business.
