CorkSol UK has hired Chris Heaton as Marketing Manager to drive brand awareness for its SprayCork coating.

As well as raising the brand’s profile, Heaton will be working closely with CorkSol’s approved applicator network to develop and grow its popular training scheme. He will work to maximise engagement with the course, which is held at the company’s training facility in Brighouse, West Yorkshire, and champion the value of learning first-hand how to specify and apply the company's products.

Heaton joins CorkSol after years of experience working with Saint-Gobain Glass, and Hydro Building Systems.

He commented: “Having worked with various big brand manufacturers to build strategic marketing plans, I’m looking forward to putting my knowledge into practice here at CorkSol, helping the business meet ambitious targets and spread the message about its one-of-a-kind product which deserves recognition.”

Joff Ward, Managing Director at CorkSol, added: “We’ve grown at pace over the past few years with brand awareness and growing our applicator network essential to our future success, which is why it’s key for us to bring someone on board who knows exactly how we should market our product to the various channels.

“Chris was appointed prior to our recent appearance at UK Construction Week and was keen to make an impact from the start. We saw his visions brought to life and he delivered an excellent show in a short period of time, so we’re really excited to see how Chris will make his mark on upcoming campaigns and product launches.”
