Window and door manufacturer appoints Key Account Manager for new target industry

Leading UK manufacturer of PVCu windows, doors and composite doors Euramax, has appointed Kevan Flanagan as its new Key Account Manager for the DIY and merchant sector.

Flanagan has nearly 20 years’ experience in the UK construction industry, working in sales, account management and marketing for manufacturing companies.

Flanagan’s career in the construction industry began in 1997 at Lafarge Cement UK, where he worked as the Area Sales Manager, before taking on the role of National Key Account Manager in 2002. In this role, he was responsible for the accounts of a number of the UKs largest builders’ merchants, including Travis Perkins and Wickes. After four years, he then took the role as Sales and Marketing Training Manager, prior to returning to the role of Key Account Manager for more well recognised builders’ merchants.

“Euramax is a recognised manufacturer in the fenestration industry, and while there is a strong current customer base in the DIY and merchant sector, there is the opportunity for growth and development,” Flanagan said. “The DIY market has grown rapidly in the last few years, with £55 billion predicted to be spent on DIY projects in the UK this year, it’s vital that we use this growth to build upon the foundation that Euramax already has.

“My years spent working with some of the UK’s largest merchants has positioned me with a great insight and set of strategic, analytical and interpersonal skills, which will be necessary to develop and secure more customers within the industry."
