Door distributor JB Kind has appointed a new Regional Sales Manager to its team. Paul Mallinson joined the company in August and will be responsible for sales in London and the South-East.

He comes to the Derbyshire distributor with extensive experience, having worked within the construction product market for more than 20 years, mainly in the door industry.

This includes many years working as a sales manager for doorset specialists Leaderflush Shapland and also manufacturer / distributor Premdor.

Mallinson has also got stuck in himself and completed a couple of his own self-builds – he understands the work involved from both sides of the fence well.

Commenting on his nwe position, he said: “I’m really loving my new role, and I’ve started out by meeting builders’ merchants and keeping them up to date with all of JB Kind’s exciting new ranges and offers.

“JB Kind is exceptionally highly regarded within the construction industry for its unrivalled doors in quality and range, and I will relish the opportunity to show off these fantastic products and further cement JB Kind’s strong position in London and the South-East – where I am from myself.

“I wanted to join JB Kind to do something that I am personally passionate about, and that is bringing great quality timber doors into the construction market.

“As well as meeting all those builders’ merchants who are already aware of JB Kind’s fantastic range, I am also looking forward to reaching out into new areas where its work is less well-known, and bringing JB Kind’s superb quality doors to a wider audience.”

JB Kind National Sales Manager Paul Way said: “We are very excited to have Paul Mallinson join us as a Regional Sales Manager for London and the South-East.

“JB Kind already has great relationships in this part of Britain and we are looking forward to seeing those become even stronger through Paul – as well as reaching new areas too.

“He comes to JB Kind with bags of experience in both the door and timber sectors, and has extensive contacts in the construction product market.

“Not only that, his passion for doors and what we do here at JB Kind is absolutely clear, so we know he is the best man for us when he goes out to show off our products in the UK capital and the south-east.”
